    This is for PC people - What is the best way to record vinyl to PC to CD. What software do people recommend to use? Can I get the software for free?

    Cheers!

    I use goldwave which is free (shareware) and does the job nicely. Also been playing with Audacity which is free, but have never used that to record vinyl.

      loads of free stuff. sound recorder (or whatever it's called) ships free with windows and will do the job, just taking internal line in signals and recording to .WAV

      if you want to get clever and remaster/clean etc, try Steinberg's Wavelab, Soundforge, or CoolEdit (or many more progs). You can get DirectX plugins to do audio restoration - these plugins work with all the different major commercial packages.

      it's well worth spending a few quid on a good, high-quality music standard audio card - personally i'd go for an internal PCI one, but some people use USB external ones without any trouble. the sound quality from these cards is a million times better than you'll get from a crappy mini headphone-jacked internal soundcard that came with your pc.

        I second Wavelab, its great for doing mixes as well cos you can burn CD's from it with 0 second track markers so the mixes run through without pauses between tracks.

          if anyone's really serious about specifically recording vinyl to CDR on computer, there's a special USB phono preamp that's designed for doing just that...
