Thanks for your prompt assistance.

I do not have mixing software. But, I found that if you click on the volumn control icon, choose "options", then "properties", then "recording" and make sure "Stereo Mix" has a check mark, you can then record 60 seconds of sound coming from you computer using Sound Recorder that is provided with Windows under "Accessories" & "Intertainment".
