Got a new recording job...

My oldest sister dropped off a HUGE box of vinyl for me to record to CD.

60's, 70's and 80's rock!

Cheap Trick, Foreigner, Kansas, Beatles, etc, etc...

My sister can find CD's brand new of many of her albums.
But putting on a CD that sounds like vinyl, complete with the occasional pop or slight skip, is great.

ACCCKKK!!!

Ted Nugent "Cat Scratch Fever" is in there!

1. Not really a music fan myself but I love archival projects like this....

I took it upon myself to digitize my grandparents collection of hundreds if not thousands of photos through the generations.

2. I did that for my parents' old slides.

Mom saw the picture of her wedding filling my 20" monitor, and teared up.

(My Dad died 2 years ago.)

3. What method do you prefer for doing that? Headphone jack to mic input?

4. I have a record player that can record to to a memory stick.

It records mp3 files to a usb port, in "Audacity" I separate the tracks, then burn CD's from the tracks.

Recording the soundtrack to "Flashdance" at the moment.
How's that for 80's?

5. Ah. Mine's a 35 year old Technics (with the strobe), so I have to go through the amp.

6. When I did it I had a Turtle Beach sound card

that had phone in - real life size RCA jacks - came from the "out to tape" jacks on the back of my receiver.
I recorded .wav format 44.1khz, 16bit stereo and burned straight to CD as CDDA.

That was back in the old days though - I'd probably do it to mp3 now simply because I have a cd player in my truck that can play mp3 cds.


I agree with Archae about the satisfying thunk of the needle drop and the occasional pop and hiss in my CDs though. I dig that sound.

7. I've got 1/8" jacks on the laptop. I'll probably go from the 1/4" headphone to 1/8" mic.

8. It's just a shame how Nugent broke when you accidentally dropped him, isn't it?

9. No, didn't drop Nugent.

But that wild-eyed cover photo almost scared the shit out of me!



Just finished recording AC/DC, "Highway To Hell."
