How to start a new recording with Winamp

Hi guys.

Need some help.

I'm currently doing a university radio interview show, whereby I've used Winamp to record my live shows in the past. All has been great, up 'til lately. This is because I can't get this Winamp to start new recordings, solely to play a specific file I'd previously opened, whenever I've hit play to record as I've done so in the past.

My question is this; how do I get Winamp to start new recordings? Is there a specific way to do it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Given that I've got to start the show later on today, I'd appreciate any immediate help.

Thank you.

Winamp doesn't have a record function so you have to output to WAV with the "Nullsoft Disk Writer".
Capture the audio from the soundcard with the URL "linein://"
If you play a file it will convert the file to WAV

Personally I wouldn't mess about with such a hack unless needed.
Get Audacity and do it properly https://www.audacityteam.org

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
