 :DLOL,Didn't think of that!!! ::) Thanks,Though it would be better to use somthing like audacity because when i use the dvd recorder i seem to pick up some sound in the background that sounds like a cd spinning on a spindle,This can be heard at the start and end of all of my tracks,Cheapy dvd recorder lol  ;D

My way is really different, think I posted b4 but my pc box plays through stereo speakers,(2 sound wires in stereo RED/WHITE and 1 wire YELLOW in TV.)  AUX out plug,(STEREO.) in headphones jack to pc. Record in AUDACITY. Output volume 1.0 input volume 0.2 play at about 1/2 VOL on stereo until it sounds ok. RECORD.

But i don't think my mp3's r perfect speak to Darkbliss or Bass launch

I had the same problem with the bass-y noise, I finally worked it out the all the leads and everything was fine, so after fiddeling through stuff I worked out that turning down the volume in the game clears up the distortion. Hope this helps.

In the game when I start a tune- Bpm set to 178, Reverb set to ROOM(around 20 for both options) and the volume for the whole tune at 80,(thanks to DJ Omnimaga.)

I think there are some programs where you can modify the speaker panning, but if it was recorded mono I'm not sure about that (you used the 3.5mm lead method?)

You should be able to if your using a stereo jack,Ive used a mono jack by accident before.I think you can usually tell by how many little plastic rings are on the jack plug itself,2 for stereo & 1 for mono I think.But i haven,t worked out how to record in stereo using audacity.And i get ringing whenever there is subbass :-[

I sometimes use 'Reaper' This is a seriously loaded multi track sequencer rivaling top end software but is free. Once youve got your head around it, its nice to use even if you just record into it. Add some eq and compression,export to .wav and you have your mastered track in minutes.
The problem with the 'mic' input on a pc/laptop is that its designed to be just that. A mono mic input!
Get urself a usb audio interface. A dongle size one is as cheap as chips(ebay has hundreds of them)and depending on the type,can let u record in stereo either through a mini jack or phonos.

The first one is not good. This will prob only have mono mic input and generaly used for skype etc..
The easy cap is V good and iv heared good things. Its designed for av(video) too.

Check:- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Behringer-UCA202-U-Control-USB-Audio-Interface-NEW_W0QQitemZ160307314722QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Consumer_Professional_RL?hash=item160307314722&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1298%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318
A bit more pricy but plug and play is simple. It comes with software to capture audio but audicity can recognise it as an input.(il confirm later)

Confirmed... Audicity can recognise any input or soundcard (which is what a usb interface is). Go to 'Edit' - 'prefrences'  - 'audio in.out' - 'device' . Select the device in the 'recording' drop down box and your new usb card should be there.ie.. '****usb interface' or 'easycap' etc..Select it and away you go.

Thanks For the info!! It just so happens that i've recently got a usb audio interface(quite pricey one)To use with my laptop.I wondered why i could only record in mono using audacity through the mic input.Cheers!!! :)

How can I stop the sound from being distorted? No matter what it comes up distorted and I cannot lower the volume anymore than it already is. I'm using the adapter.

Not sure if this is mentioned but I got the best possible sound quality:

-Run M2000/MTVMG on a PS2.
-Connect a optic fiber cable in 'digital out' on the PS2.
-Other end of cable connect to portable DCC recorder in 'optical in'.
-Connect second optical cable in DCC 'optical out'.
-Other end of cable to 'optical in' in Audigy break-out box sound card.
-'Record pause' on DCC.
-You have a digital signal of M2000 songs on your pc. No loss of analog distortion.

Have tried to connect PS2 directly to sound card via optical but I heard sound but could not record (DRM?).
It's not about what you have but what you can do with it!

What I have to do is lower the song volume on the game itself. When I record from MG2, I have the volume set to 5.

I always turn the Microphone level in Audacity down to 0 when recording from the TV.
For recording into a microphone (vocals, voice-acting, etc.), I have it at around 0.4.
And for recording straight from the speakers, 0.
