Digitise Your Old Vinyl


I remember when I first spoke about this turntable on-air must be about a year ago now and I still get the occasional enquiry. It's an ION iTTUSB turntable that comes with it's own on-screen editing programme. The table is 2-speed and has a mini-jack input which I use with a cassette deck so that I can transfer old cassette recordings too! The wave comes up on the screen in a programme called Audacity and you can de-click records as well as edit and play around with the sound. It'll store them on your hard drive as wav files and there's a free download that let's you save as mp3. I've another programme that'll convert the files anyway but it's a great way to store up all those old vinyl records that currently are just gathering dust at the back of the cupboard!
Thanks to a listener this morning who tells me that the same company has now brought out a cassette converter too. I've checked and he's right! Why it has to be a double deck though beats me. I found one site down to 89.99 but generally it's offered at 99.99. I might wait awhile but certainly looks very useful.
