Subject: Recording to CD, digital/analogue
From: Cappuccino

Practical help, please - as some of my Catter friends know, I record on a Roland VS840 digital 8-track, which can output analogue or digital / optical.

I already output to cassette, no problem; now I want to output a collection of songs to CD and then copy that CD in small quantities, say a dozen or two. I was about to buy a twin-deck CD machine, when the salesman said - 'it will take the digital signal in from your portastudio, but it will only record CD-to-CD in analogue'

I said 'is that going to be good enough quality for the radio stations?' He didn't know.

Any practical advice out there, please?

You can do this to your computer with a decent sound card and a CD writer. The quality will be fine.

Yes, I think the quality will be fine.

Here is a page I wrote about this on my website - I'm no expert, and it's a bit longwinded maybe, and there are very likely better ways of doing stuff in it, but it might be helpful. Making a CD from a tape is not at all hard to do.

The quality of the resulting CD depends on how good the cassette is in the first place - though you might improve on that a bit, since in the process of making it you can get rid of the some unwanted noise, fade in and fade out, and change the order of tracks and so forth.

And once you've made one you can easily copy as many as you like as and when you want them.

IanB,

"is that going to be good enough quality for the radio stations?"

Why not test drive the twin deck CD machine and listen to the results. You be the judge. I'd be surprised if you could hear a difference.

If you can hear a difference or are ideologically commited to digital copying, Les has the right idea. PC sound cards with digital I/O are becoming common and quite reasonably priced.

To get the full CD quality you have to have more that a 16 bit sound card. Cd's are 20 bits encoded, are they not?
I do mine from 16 bits WAV files and burn via Nero 5. It certainly "works" and sound good "enough" but on earphones all the clever stereo I fiddled with was so excessive it is very noticeable. It was individual singers and it would have been better to just shift a bit or use a "stereo wide" setting in "SoundForge" (or eqivalent).
