ThisIonAudio Profile USB turntableAudacity® is free, open source software for recording and editing sounds.
In a nutshell, after I record the album into Audacity, I clean up the album noise, clicks, pops, etc. Then I breakup/title the tracks, export into seperate WAV files to get a lossless version.
From here I import into itunes and create two copies, one lossless Apple version, and one AAC 128kbps VBR copy for my iPod Touch.
If you get interested I will be glad to give you more details as to the steps....Randy
So far I've converted about 10 of my old albums, with tons to go...
Oh yeah, I purchased a Spinclean record cleaner
to clean my vinyl first....worked awesome and made them look like new...
