I just starting to do something like that using audacity (with
mic input from mouth, hand or flute beats) and really wishing
for a foot switch. I guess there might be someway to do it via
a midi foot controller??? but I'm not in the mood to get any more
new technology right now. So I'll probably switch to rezound and
use its "wait for the audio signal" to start recording feature.

Also can you explain what you mean by "professional player" and
"transcribe" above? ie player is person or machine, and transcribe
is to written chart or audio track?
I know exactly what you mean. I play better than I read. And I

recording some my practice time. It's help my understanding
quite a bit. (and that's helping my reading.)
I'm glad to see the discussion of Collaboration; very useful, I
