So it is looking more and more like Audacity will not work as a volume recorder for me

If you look around (example: Amazon) you can find SPL meters from under $20, but don't expect a cheap one to be very accurate, or be able to measure low level sound.

For a "Class 1" calibrated SPL meter, you could be paying well over $3000.

you could be paying well over $3000.

That's the one you use if someone is suing your company for hearing damage. That's also the one you use when you're setting up a new screening room for clients writing big checks.

Well to be honest it was nothing spectacular then all that. I needed it to read about 100-130 db (or in 20 microns as you called it under your program)
A lot of those apps that will not run on win O/S (IBM base) only go upto 80-96 db, so not a lot of good there
