Default Make Your Own Audio CD

Hey,
I was wondering if any of you guys knew what the easiest, best, and most inexpensive (without being like totally crappy) way to make your own cd's would be? I have been wondering about this for some time and need to know like what computer programs to get, etc.
Thanks

Are you talking about making a home recoerding studio?

There are microphones design to connect directly to your PC.
I've seen them at www.musiciansfriend.com .
As far as software goes: I have Acid Pro 4.0 which allows multitrack recording and audio file authoring.

Something like that, but not like to incredibly complicated or expensive, like , idk, some computer software i could get for my computer and buy a mic and make a quality, but not like overly professional equipment and stuff like that. Just enough to make a good cd that is in high fidelity stereo.

You mean to just burn audio tracks to CDs and such? The cheapest one may be Cheetah. It has a free 15 day trial. It's $15 for the CD burner. The DVD burner software (which looks like it includes CDR capability too ) is $25.

www.cheetahburner.com

Pretty simplistic, but seems okay. Nero is what I normally use, but it came bundled with some other stuff that I had.

Cheetah does ripping to mp3 and also converting from wav to mp3. It doesn't do any mixing or recording of wav files. But, I think Windows or your sound card usually will come with at least minimal software to let you record to a wav file from a microphone. You could then convert that wav to mp3 and burn it to a disc
