Please note that *nothing* will record analogue audio to a digital
computer. Since the computer is able to store only digital data, the
analogue signal must be digitized before it can be recorded. The parameters
of digitizing are selectable, depending on the program used.
As I understand the question, the source is not a file or any other digital
source (e.g., the data stream of CD-DA). Therefore the range capabilities
of Exact Audio Copy or of "Pro Tools" would not apply.
