There may not be a free lunch in this world but, thanks to the open-source development community, there's an exceptional, free audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux. It's called Audacity, and if you've never tried it, you're in for a treat, especially now that Audacity's newest beta release (1.3.8) has hit the Web, as noted by OStatic's Lisa Hoover.
You can also use it to convert analog (tapes, records, 8-tracks, whatever) into digital recordings, or speed up a recording of your voice to Alvin and the Chipmunk-esque speeds.
Whatever you fancy. It's free. It's open source. It works really, really well...
