[LAU] Audio-Video desktop recording

About 8-9 years ago I attempted to record video and on-board sound along with
an external microphone. There were two programs I tried, Record My Desktop,
and (I think) Simple Screen Recorder.
I couldn't get either of them to manage the microphone, and only one to include
stereo audio - and even that was a struggle (can't remember which one).

I'm wondering what the current situation is for the best possible prospect of
doing this. I won't be using a camera, but want to be able to use a microphone
for voiceover, so that of course would be mono.

Also I envisage doing this in comparatively short sections, then stitching
them all together afterwards to make a seemingly continuous vid.

Can anyone make suggestions. The kit I'll be using will have an earlier 4 core
AMD Ryzen, with a reasonably modern Radeon GPU card and connected to an M-Audio
Mtrack 8.
