If you are on PC it is simple enough to write some DirectX code to open a
stream from the default input and to then pass these blocks to a coder (I
would suggest vorbis - there may actually be an example which does this).
As an alternative I would suggest using a video recorder. A modern cheap
video recorder will record in stereo, and the quality is very acceptable. If
you use long play you get 8 hours of stereo audio onto one tape.
