Audacity is an excellent free audio recording and editing software. You can download it here: http://www.audacityteam.org/download/
There are a lot of YouTube tutorials on Audacity. I recommend keeping it simple and building up knowledge slowly.
First because you will only need a small fraction of the advice out there and it will take a while to know exactly what you need to know to accomplish what you want to do. And secondly, because there is a lot of other stuff you will need to learn along the way, recording/editing is only a smart piece of the pie.
Pat Flynn is a noted podcast expert and his recording and marketing advice are invaluable. He is a podcasting expert and while you may not be interested in doing a podcast, at least to start, he offers helpful organizing and production tips.
If you are interested in producing your own cds, Kunaki is a great resource for professional cd production and packaging. You can print in small quantities and edit/revise your approach with each printing as you learn. And there’s a lot to learn. Most of it is entirely dependent on your audience and things you will learn from them. Hope that helps, feel free to reach via email or call if I can be of help.
