Another free application is ++ LICEcap by Cockos Incorporated ++ . Yep, that's the same folks that make the digital audio workstation, Reaper.

I believe another forum member mentioned the program in an earlier post so I don't want to imply I "discovered" it. crazy

Pipeline, thanks for this tip.

I'm not sure how to keep the resulting GIF under 2 MB, though. I saved a pretty short file (about three seconds) as quality = 10, and it was 2.7 MB. Then I changed the quality = 1, thinking that must reduce the file size, and it was still 2.7 MB. Obviously I am missing something in the settings? Thanks.

Try the FPS setting at the bottom, I have it on 9 but you can try it lower.
You don't want to do full screen capture.
If it is too big you might need to upload to a dropbox or mediafire.
Google free image hosting.

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
Improved: Lyrics will be now read from .mid files that used to be karaoke files (.kar) and got renamed somewhere along the line.
Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.

Fixed: File > Open Special > Open Audio was importing audio instead of opening it in a new song.
Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
