Audio recording is easy as long as you have the right recorder. Fortunately, there are several applications on Windows 7 that can help you capture system sounds. Below, I’ll share step-by-step how to record audio in Windows 7 using a handy audio recorder. Just read and follow.
WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro offers an audio recorder that is perfect for capturing computer sounds. Windows 7 users can use it to easily record system sound, microphone sound, or both into high-quality MP3, AAC, AC3, and lossless WAV files. The entire process takes just a few clicks. Additionally, you can trim, merge, convert and compress files after recording.
Launch WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro and enter the “Recorder” module. Next, select the “Audio-only” recording mode.
Expand the “Format” drop-down list and select your preferred recording format.
Check the audio source you want to record. The "Desktop" option records system sound, while "Microphone" captures audio from the microphone. You can select both to mix both audio sources at the same time.
Before recording, please select the output folder at the bottom of the program. Then, click "REC" to start recording. After the recording is completed, click the "Stop" button or press the hotkey "Ctrl + F1" to stop recording. You can view the recorded files in the folder you just set.
If all you want is to record your voice from the microphone, you can use the built-in Sound Recorder in Windows 7. The program is simple and easy to use, and as soon as you set up your microphone, you can start recording your voice immediately. Follow these steps:

Step 3. Now, click “Start Recording” to record your voice.

Note: If there is no sound in the recording, you can check whether the microphone is enabled in the recording settings. Go to Start > Control Panel > Sound, then go to the Recording tab and see if the microphone is enabled. If you don't see the option, right-click anywhere in the empty space and select "Show Disabled Devices." Then right-click on the microphone to enable the device.
