Im making my first flash movie with some speech, but as i tried recording something on the Windows Sound Recorder it came out really shit so im asking you guys, what kind of programs do you use to get a clear voice into the flash with no fuzzing sound in the back.

What mic are you using?

I would try getting Audacity for a program (nice free program), but the mic has a lot to do with it.

Just as davidOrr says, it has a lot to do with your mic. Try messing with the volume and mic boost, also get ride of any background noise. The soundrec.exe program in windows records just fine, I've done it before.

The software won't really change the recording quality, if the mic is bad, there's almost nothing to do about it.
There are some software with noise reduction, but those filters don't really work that well.

What I would suggest you to do (if you wanna be a little bit serious about this), is that you purchase a small 5-track mixer with an XLR-input, the Behringers cost about 50$. With a mixer you can connect MUCH better microphones. Then you can connect the mixer to your computer with Aux to minijack.

So, what I would reccomend is getting:
Behringer Xenyx-UB502
And some dynamic microphone.

There also is an USB-microphone that could work, here: Samson Q10.
Should also work allright, but if you purchase a mixer you will have a wider range of higher quality microphones.
But if you just want to have some fun, I'd just reccomend that you go with the USB-mic, it will give you highly acceptable quality.

Audacity or just the sound recorder you should have on your computer will work fine but Audacity has more effects and whatnot

i have somethigng called Line 6
its a little expensive (around $120). but well worth it
it easily connects the mic to the computer and has some software where you can clean things up and add effects.
its also used for guitars and basses

Audacity is pretty good. Then you can just mix it with fl studio or something, which you can use to make it sound a little cleaner and smoother, but yea, the mic has a lot to do with it. I would suggest audacity though. just google it, its a free download.
