It depends on where the digitized audio will be played

applications record into AIFF or AIFC files (Audio
Interchange File Format) which most Mac people can play
but not Unix and PC folks.

I suggest you get the program SoundMachine. Here is
one of the places where it lives:

Also check out the following web page -- it has pointers to other
video, etc., programs that may be helpful.

If you have more questions, feel free to email me.
