Mandrake comes with no sound recorder, but there is a free program called SoundStudio that can record sound card input to a wav file, edit wav files, and convert among several different sound formats. (It it distributed as source code, and must be compiled before you can run it.) There are a few CD players, mixer panels, mpg3 and midi players, and animation viewers. Check under ``multimedia'' in the drop-down menu. There's a CD burning program called cdrecord, and a (downloadable) graphical front-end called cdrtoaster.
