I'd suggest you look at audacity, from sourceforge. Open source, easy to use, useful editing and effects.

You'll need a microphone and an input socket to your soundcard, of course...:)

The Microphone and Soundcard are the most important elements here and there is no point even discussing software if these aren't of sufficient quality.

Steinberg Wavelab would get my vote as the best editor.

There are many kinds of voice recordings....

The spoken voice is perhaps the simplest, not requiring much, if any, mixing. The free programme I mentioned above is more than adequate.

A singing voice would be a little more demanding and would maybe require one of the more dedicated programmes, up to the CuBase, Steinberg, etc, level.

In any case, you may find you need a small microphone mixer to change the microphone signal into 'line in' signal.
You may already know the above, but I thought I'd mention it, just in case.
