Tape/vinyl to HD/Cd

  Newuser2 10:57 02 Sep 2006

I would to convert all my tapes/vinyl to cd.
I think I am correct in that I record the tracks to my HD first then rip them to cd's.
I have a lead to connect my tape player to the sound card, is there anything else I need.
I have an ASUS K8V SE deluxe MB which has its own on-board sound.

I use LP Recorder and LP Ripper to do what you want to do. LP Recorder makes 1 long .wav file of the whole tape/LP and then I use LP Ripper to split it back to separate tracks.

I am just looking at doing this, and I know nothing about it.Can someone tell me I I can just use the "Black" mic imput plug on my computer to take the connection from my CD Player.

It would be better to use the line in socket on yor computer, as the mic socket could be overloaded with the high level coming from your player

I agree with Fingees as the Mic socket has a preamp that will make the sound level too high when a CD player or other equipment is plugged into it which will make it sound distorted so you'll need to use the Line-In connection. You might be able to plug a turntable into it as record decks give a lower sound output and needs a preamp. This is why if you plug a turntable into any other socket than "Phono" on your amp, the volume needs to be turned right up to hear it properly. The Mic socket is also mono so you won't get stereo sound from anything plugged into it.

I am having difficulty locating "Line in Socket" as far as I can see i have a yellow, blue, pink & black (which I think is mic)I have looked in the instruction manual, and where it shows Line in & out jacks there is a blank plate, but it is not showing the jack points I have described.
