Transferring tape and record to CD

  [DELETED] 21:45 08 Dec 2003

I've seen adverts for various soft/hardware programs which claim to be able to transfer analogue cassette or vinyl signals to CD via a desktop and a CD burner.

Are any of these reliable, and if so, which ones?

I've been using LP recorder which I saw reviewed in another magazine. It works fine, but I had to pay about £20 registration fee for it - and shortly after doing that I discovered that Nero, which came bundled with my computer has a wave editor that does the trick; and also that my creative soundcard has a sound recorder that will do the job; and someone else on this forum recommended the Goldwave program as excellent. All will transfer to .wav form, and then Ahead Nero (and I guess other standard CD burning software) will transfer it to CDA format that can be read on a normal CD stereo. You have to amplify the signal from your turntable/tape player, and then connect to your line-in socket, rather than your microphone...
I've just started transferring my LP collection and am happily reliving those student days....
