Yeah, not an audiophile recording, for sure.

Hey Randy- What are you using for vynal conversion, equipment and software-wise? One of the projects creeping up my to-do list is ripping quite a few albums. I'm hoping to improve on some over compressed remastered cd versions I have. I bought the xitel usb unit reccomended by john k, but have not gotten serious yet.

Converting some vinyl to digital again tonight. Right now enjoying the song Feels Like The First Time on Foreigner Records...and enjoying a nice chilled glass of home made wine.

This

IonAudio Profile USB turntable







Audacity® 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...

Kudos to all of you doing vinyl transfers!

If you can, try to "record" them at 24bit/96k (if you are going to play them in a media server type scenario).

Be careful with noise reduction though, you can suck the life right out of recordings with overuse of consumer grade software (professional grade too).

I use to hate even the slightest "crackle" or "pop" on vinyl records back in the olden days, but I've actually grown fond of a little bit of surface noise, if it has to be there. Sorta like a crackling fire. Comforting somewhat. It's funny how nostalgia can creep up on a fella...

But vinyl noise has been romanticized for a while now with samples of it being used on countless CDs.

I really need to pick up some GG: another one of those bands I really didn't appreciate when I first listened to them. Going strait from '70s am pop to Zappa and GG was a bit of a shift.

+1 on Audacity. I use it to take the voice overs out of the Bird Call CD's that I have.

Lol, I thought you meant Merle Haggard!

Who is also cool btw...

I mean, "I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole..." is about as gangsta hard as it gets.
