Actually I don't have any equipment such as what has beeen mentioned. I'm just wondering what is involved and if it is worth it. Thanks for the responses.

If you're not overly bothered about quality, you can almost certainly connect some output on your record deck to the PC. I connect mine to the LINE-IN of my soundcard, but it depends whether the signal has been amplified before you let it near the sound card. Once connected, there is lots of software to capture the input - your soundcard probably came with some and if you have a rewriteable CD or DVD it almost certainly came with something to burn the audio files.

So, if you've got a record deck, you've almost certainly have everything you need apart from a handful of adapters to connect the bits together.

If you are very bothered about the sound quality you might want to invest in more specialist recording software to try to get rid of scratches, etc. But remember you also have to invest time to get the improvement you want.

As to whether its worth it - only you can answer that. It depends how many LPs you've got, whether you can buy them on CD already, how much life you think you've got in the record deck you have, how you trade off the time involved against buying CDs where they are available ...

Thanks for that site, Wilbyhillbilly. Does anyone know of a service like that here in the states? ie one that will record the lp onto cd for you? It is really just one lp I want converted. One for myself and one as a gift. Thanks again

My sister and I have a hobby of re-recording interesting old LP's onto tape or CD. I have an RCA machine which plugs into my tuner and copies CD's. It cost about $200 at Radio Shack.

My sister makes tapes off the LP's. Equipment for doing this is a lot more common. You need a turntable, a tape deck, and a tuner, things which a lot of people, especially older people, already have.

You can do wonders for scratches by simply washing the LP gently with lukewarm water and a little detergent. Get as much water off as you can, and then record it. A phonograph needle doesn't seem to be fazed at all by running through water.

I get a little noise on my set up as the cables aren't as good quality as they should be but I run things a bit differently to Dave. I have 4 separates, turntable, tuner, tape and amp. The amp does not have a suitable line out so I use a headphones socket on the tape. If I want to record from that tuner or the turntable, I just push the little tab on the tape up (ie. pretend there is a tape in) and put it in record mode. I can adjust the levels using the record levels on the tape deck.

I use a mixer from there as I have too many devices wanting the line in on the sound card (I've got a tv card and a keyboard as well and sometimes I plug a mic in and a bass guitar has been known to be connected as well...). Stereo out on the mixer goes to line in on the sound card. Line out on the soundcard goes to aux in on the amp for play back.

As I said above, it's not perfect but it gives me all the options I want.

One problem with recording LPs or tapes to CDs using a CD recorder, is that you get two tracks on the CD, side 1 and side 2.

I deal with this by recording the LP/tape onto mini-disc, editing it (put in track spaces) and then recording to CD.

Takes time, but if you want a good master of rare material, it works.

Good results from a home hifi system.

Cheers, John

I have another question can you "burn a copy of a 'burned" cd? Will that work?

Once you have burned a CD it is reduced to ashes, so you should burn a copy before you burn it, which is why that is called a backup.

jaze - whenever you duplicate a duplicate you run the risk of loss of data, blurring, etc. However, yes - once you have a CD burned - you may make duplicates of it - or what may be better if you have the hard drive capacity - make a CD image of the 'original' and use the IMAGE to burn additional copies.

I found a website that offers to clean,record, reduce noise, and make a scan of the original cover. They say they can only legally make one copy. That is why I asked about making a second cd. I'd like a copy for myself(this lp is not comercially available) and one I'd like to give as a Christmas gift. Thanks to evreyone for your input and advice. James
