Vinyl transer to I-pod or hardrive-HOW??
    #7098860 - 06/27/07 03:31 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

My dad has tons of great vinyl tracks just sitting out in the garage collecting dust. everytime i pass such a gold mine i fell like a douchebag just letting it sit there. what would the best way of getting the vinyl tracks onto my hardrive and then onto my i-pod or onto a cd for my dad? is there a way i can use a computer program to clean up the tracks so it doesnt sound all scratchy and what not like a vinyl normally sounds? any help would be great. thanks.

Personally, i think the scratchy sound is what makes vinyl, just clean them first. Now me, I have a mixer and turntables, so it is simple for me to run the output to my computer and record with a program like Bias Peak (I use a mac). For windows you could use something like Sonar. If you dont have a mixer, maybe your amplifier has RCA outputs, use an RCA to 1/8 inch and run it into your mic input. Hope that helps a little

If the vinyls were well taken care of (sounds like they weren't if they're just sittin' in a garage) then they shouldn't sound too bad anyway. Just get a record player, not everything needs to be played through your computer, ya know.

you can either purchase one of the mp3 turntables they have out now.. I believe Numark and a couple other companies are making them... they run directly to USB, I believe..

or, buy a cheap interface that allows you to run an RCA out of your receiver or amp or mixer, through a little box and come out USB.. then, you'll need a program like SoundForge for PC or GarageBand for Mac to record into. I got one of these intefaces for like $40 and the quality of recording is fine for normal home use.

yos-

considering the whole point is to get the vinyls onto the computer and to be able to clean them up and put them onto an I-POD or cd to take anywhere...it does need to be played through a computer........dumbass

ZOMG PLEAZE DON'T FLAME ME IT'LL MAKE ME CRY.

Learn how to not take everything like a dildo in your asshole. Like I said, if they were well taken care of they won't sound like shit. It's nice to throw some records on a record player every now and then. You also posed two different questions, one of which was if you could simply transfer them to a computer/Ipod for listening. So I guess I ain't the dumbass after all, am I?

I don't feel like getting banned.
