4 track tape recording direct to PC

  Deluge 16:05 27 Apr 2005

I've got an old 4 Track that records on tape and I want a PC onto which I can directly transfer the recordings in a digital format to burn CDs. Can anybody advise me on the cheapest PC (and necessary accessories to go with it) that could do this for me?

What PC do you have now?

maybe not worth to buy a PC for just 4 tapes

maybe you can ask a mate do it for you, just connect tape player's output to the PC's sound card Line-in, then you can use a free program CDex to do it click here

if you want to get a cheap PC, Dell has some great offers under £300

Sorry that link didn't work. Just type in vinyl to cd in the search box on the left of the screen (not the top one)

You will have to mix the four tracks to two (stereo left and right) before transferring to hard drive/CD.
