Consider using one Android's default external storage folders, in your case the DIRECTORY_MUSIC like this

File path = Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory(

You can use this File class constructor to create a new folder on the SD card:

File audioFolder = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory(), 
if (!audioFolder.exists()) {
    boolean success = audioFolder.mkdir()
    if (success) {
        // save the file
