I use two programs that allow me to burn analog to digital in my 
computer -- Nero Suite and  Roxio Creator 7.
I do my mising and other equalizing tunng first then use either program 
to burn the CD. Easier than using the rather time consuming
work in the program. I use both for different situations. Neither is too 
expensive in US dollars. And they are easy to use to start with.
The Cool Edit program was bought by Adobe which automatically made it 
more costly than the earlier versions. You might trying buying an OEM 
version that comes bundled with some computers. I bought a Version 7 
Photo Shop  in a OEM - no manual but the directions are in the help area 
of the program. Otherwise the same as the higher over the counter 
version. Savings, about $350 US dollars. (You might try getting a 
student at some recognized school to buy the student version if offered. 
A simlar discount.)
But you can do a lot with the first two mentioned and a lot less $$ or 
pounds/euro than the Adobe Cool Edit.
