windows7 v2.1.1 exe I need to record silence

I’ve read threads on recording silence … I HAVE to record silence… cos thats what
splits up words in a vocal … whn i stop singing/talking i need that silence in
there otherwise it all streams together … not good … how do i record everything…
silence or not ? Thanks in advance.

Audacity will stop recording during silences with a setting.
