Can't convert vinyl to an audio file

Using a prolectrix usb turntable.

I've installed Audacity (editing software) provided with the turntable. But the prompt I'm supposed to get to install the usb driver from the CD doesn't happen.

Which driver do I need ?

Where could I get it from ?

    USB software is not detected by windows XP even though the instructions say that it is on the CD that came with the turntable.

Hi there; I had the same problem, not being able to install or even view the files on the disc. I have XP therefore out of curiosity I ran it on a PC with Vista and it worked; so I promptly transferred the disc back into my disc drive and bingo it worked. .....Don't ask me how...but it did. Good luck

Using turntable (audio technica at-lp 120) with built in pre amp the sound is distorted and broken up. the turntable requests phono turned on to use. Does the receiver have a pre amp or boost signal...

A turn table produces sound voltage in the millivolt range. If you have it connected to a receiver that has a phono input and the turn table is pre-amplified, you are overdriving the receiver and it is clipping the audio and making it sound bad.

you need a RCA Y connector jack (2 male RCA jacks to 1 mini) and this software the 2 RCA jacks will be place in the out on the tape deck or receiver and the mini to your mic jack on laptop... the software audacity will also give you the choice of what type of file to use (mp3 takes up less on the laptop)

note this will be in real time (if the tape is 30 min , yep 30 it is).. now once you get it converted its gonna be a matter or seconds to copy (record)

I want to convert LP to digital using a 1980s audiophile stereo system -- Rega Planar 3 glass turntable, AdCom rack -- to take advantage of the beautiful analog sound. I'm not a techie. How can I do...

Just remember that any time you convert to digital, you will lose some of that beautiful analog sound, especially if you start compressing the result. Some people claim they can hear the difference between the original analog and even an uncompressed digital conversion.

Having said that, all you really need is the line input of your computer's sound card and some software. A good free program is Audacity. You can convert your LPs to digital, do some processing, then pick how you'd like to save the result. Other commercial (i.e., you need to buy it) software is available with lots of bells and whistles, but Audacity will get you basic operation for free.

Connect the line output of your system to the line in jack of your computer. The cable will need a 1/8-inch stereo plug for the computer and probably RCA plugs at the other end. Here's a suitable cable at Radio Shack. Audacity (or whatever you decide on) will take in the audio and convert it initially to an uncompressed WAV format. You can then tinker with cleaning up the sound if you want, adjust equalization, add effects, split an album side into separate tracks.

When you're done, you'll probably want to save the result as some compressed format. There are several, with FLAC or MP3 being commonly used. Rather than go into much detail here, I'll just suggest you use some Google-fu to find out more about them. Then you can make some CDs or load up an iPod, and take your old vinyl favorites on the road.

It's a little time-consuming since you need to play the LPs at regular speed to capture the audio. But if you didn't enjoy listening to them, you wouldn't be wanting to convert them, would you? I do this myself frequently, both with LPs as well as stuff I have on cassette. In fact, if your family has old audio recordings of family members, this is a great way to preserve them and put them in a form that can be easily sent along. All you need is something that can play the original source material.

Have fun! Thanks for using Fixya.

I am digitizing vinyl. I cannot figure out how to connect this HE100 to my computer. phono has only in. turntable will not run through tape, which has record/audio out connections. it seems silly and...

Perhaps you should break this down into its TWO components:

1) Define the Phono source you're using. Is it an old-school turntable that REQUIRES a Phono Preamp conenction on the receiver to generate a useful level and quality of audio: or do you hae a new-age TT that can supply its own pre-amplified signal to ANY Line Level input; or do yuou have a newer-age USB TT that could connect directly to a PC via USB?

2) Anything that can connect to or pass through the receiver can be used as an input on a PC Sound Card via it's Microphone Input (if not via a specific analog or digital input). Run an RCA cable from the receiver's Tape_ or VCR-Out to an adapter that fits the Microphone Input if there is no RCA-style audio input.

Need to install audio software for windowsvista

Hi kamootz

You have not mentioned anything specific that you are trying to install, so if you are just looking for a general audio recording/editing software, try Audacity. It works well, and is Ok for Vista. If this is not what you are trying to do, then please provide a few more details and I will be able to help you further. Cheers

I have new Prolectrix turntable USB Direct and tone arm leaves record before end of playing record. Hope you can help. Thanks

Turning the return position adjustment (the flat black-headed screw next to the tone arm) a little clockvise will probably fix your problem.

The red/white plugs on the cable are called "RCA jacks", you'll need to get an adapter which will convert the rca jacks into one stereo pin jack to plug into the input jack of your computer

What to use for Audio-out on Denon AVR-2807?

Hi Karmor

Use the Tape Out(rec) connections on the Denon. If that model has a rec out selector, then be sure to select phono as well. All sweet and ready to rip them files!!
