    hi
    im wondering if its possible using winamp to play music and be able to record that song without using a mic.
    what im trying to do is broadcast over msn to someone some music from winamp but i want the quality to be better than with a mic.
    is there an addon to winamp that does this or is it in windows somewhere?
    thanks!
    Alex

    I'm assuming that you are talking about music that you are playing yourself? (guitar,keyboard,etc.?) If so, there are sound cards that can be added to your computer that will accept a regular 1/4" line-in plug. These work just like you plug in your equipment to an amp. If you need voices or anything w/o "electronic" output (drums,horns,etc) then you are stuck with a mic. Nothing says you have to use a "computer" mic.,you could record,mix,save with more professional equipment and play-back as a wav or mp3 file.

    Ok, you confused me by asking about recording.

    First thing to realize is that "if you already have these songs as MP3s in your library........they are already recorded"

    Next is that WinAmp is a "player" that you use. The listener will be listening on whatever player they choose.

    Finally be aware that there may be copyright issues with "broadcasting" pre-recorded music. Radio stations pay royalty fees to be able to pay the stuff that they do.

    i know all that!
    i know im playing the song thats already recorded (duh) on my computer, but they will be listening to it through MSN Messenger.
    or at least thats what i want...if possible, if not they can listen through their own player but i dont know how to do that either.
    and i know all that bout copyright. i wont be breaking any laws coz these are my own creations...i made these songs. all i want is for my friend to be able to hear them live...can it be done?
    thanks!

    First of all SKIP the DUH crap. I'm trying to help you and YOU are the one saying two different things.

    First you say:
    Then you say:
    Make up YOUR mind................DUH

    I did ask the first time if this was music you were playing yourself. Your next response did NOT say that these were "your" songs, just that they were "prerecorded". The copyright issue goes away at that point. (I was just trying to warn you there) Lastly you can't "Force" anyone to listen with a certain player. If they have it....fine, if not they use their "own" player. What difference would it make to YOU what player they use?

    Goto Shoutcast.com

    This site can explain everything you need to know about setting up a simple Shoutcast streaming server using WinAmp. It's actually quite easy to do....DUH !
