CD Writer/ CD Recorder

  Vandergelder 12:21 06 Jun 2003

I have many cassette jazz tapes which I would like to record on CD Discs. Can this be achieved via my PC either by a CD Writer or CD Recorder and what inexpensive equipment would I need to make these recordings?
Would appreciate any info or ideas.

Assuming you have good stereo tape unit with audio out terminals then all you need is the audio cables to connect between your unit and the line-in input jack on your PC audio card.

A good piece of software - ideal for most people, but not the specialists, is Magix Audio Cleaning Lab DeLuxe V3.0 (must be V3) which can be bought for about 20 GBP.

If the output from your tape unit is low then a pre-amp may be necessary to be connected between the unit and the PC. These can be had at Maplins for about 20ish GBP.

beeuuem's refereences will give you a good idea of what it is all about and there are many more on the web should you need them.

Nice to see another 'jazz' fan on here. I play clarinet in a jazzband. I have hundreds of hours of jazz on tape (reel to reel and cassette) the programme I use is LP Recorder and LP Ripper.

LP Recorder puts it on the hard disk as one long track and LP Ripper splits it up into separate tracks again ready for burning on to CD.
