Burning copies of LP's and Tapes...


Recommended Posts

How do I make copies of LP's and tapes and burn them on CD's? I have a ton of old LP's and tapes and want to put them on CD since many of them have never made it to commercial CD. Secondly, how do I go in and edit what I am copying. There are some that have no space between songs and I want to burn each seprately so I want to be able to go in and select what to keep and delete the rest... As far as I can see there are no edit capabilities anywhere on Roxio...

 

Any help will be appreciated thanks...

Use AudioCentral. I don't have v6, so I can't give you specific instructions, but go here..... http://www.roxio.com/en/support/tutorials/...orial_toc.jhtml and see if that helps.

First you must get the LP's into the computer. I bought and installed Video Advantage PCI card to transfer home video to cd/dvd. This is a Turtle Beach product http://www.turtlebeach.com/site/ The hardware has all connections on front of computer s-video, rca r+l, plus fire wire and a USB. STAY AWAY from units that use USB for input. This unit is PCI direct to motherboard/ hard drive. There is edit software included for video and sound. Sound is Audio Surgeon. I have not yet tried to transfer LP's, but video works very easy when saved in digital format. ( 2 hours of video =40 gig must have 40+ more to rewrite and burn) I did take a song and burn onto a cd it worked like I wanted.

Audio Central's Sound Editor is the tool you use: there's pretty good information in the Help, in fact. I've done 70+ LPs and some cassettes. I won't say they're perfect (I am not an audio engineer) but they are good enough for me to enjoy them. You do need a turntable with a pre-amp to make levels adequate for line-in on the computer (a friend who has done audio engineering clued me in).

 

 

Remember though that you will be recording these in real time, and while it will clean up some pops, click, and hiss, the recording can only be as good as the input media. If perfection is your goal, try to find the cheapest CD version re-mastered by the label, and make your computer copy / MP3 from that.

 

Since you will be recording in real time, a one-hour LP takes at the minimum one hour to record as a large audio file plus some time to split it into tracks and save it (an aside- live albums are much trickier to split since the people talking on stage can have silences misinterpreted as track gaps)... so, if time is of the essence, again you might want to evaluate buying the CD since it's already digitized.
