Unwanted recording overlays

When recording LP records from my Numark TTUSB turntable using a direct line cable to my iMac G4 and EZVinyl Converter software, I am hearing sounds from the room (doors closing, voices, etc.) on the recordings when I play back on my iTunes library after recording.  I have no microphones hooked up anywhere on this system.  What gives?

    This will sound a little strange, but I don't have a "normal" stereo.  I do have the Audacity software already installed on my computer (part of the EZ Converter disc), but it didn't come with instructions in the operation booklet, nor can I find any information on the operation of the system on the "help" drop down in the program.  I'm mystified how it (the EZ software) can record the sounds in the room while recording the records without any microphones present, plugged in, or operating.

    Hey Ziraffa (not a clue...ggg) the bkfndrstrat is a reference to my 30 year old black on black fender stratacaster.  Anywho, I went to the EZ software and the drop downs in the tool bar were no help at all. There is no tools/option only "file", "edit" and "help" (really no help at all) as it leads you to "Download EZ Vinyl Converter 2" which downloads a file that will not open.

    Why don't you just use a normal jack cable from a normal stereo and plug it into the Line in plug and use a free prog like Audacity to record it?

Hey black fender start person, I'm genuinely sorry for sounding patronising and 'of the applemac-fool-mockery crew'. The needle-on-the-record is acting as a wall mic. I don't know about the ez software, but I'm guessing there are default settings in there somewhere, in tools/options or suchlike.
Have a look at the mic settings you might be able to apply some pleasing preset.
good luck :)

Which xitel product records directly from turntable

You need a turntable with a built-in phono preamplifier that has a 'Line out' output if you want to record directly from it using Xitel's INport. Alternatively you could connect your turntable to a standalone phono-preamplifier and connect the INport to its output.

Xitel Inport De luxe with window 7

The directions for using the Xitel Inport Deluxe under Win7 are the same as those for using the device with Vista. The drivers are built into the OS. You will need to set the audio input to the Xitel device. For most installs of Windows 7 (Aero capable), with the Inport Deluxe plugged into a USB port on the computer, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Under the Sound listing, click on Manage Audio Devices. In the Recording tab, right click on Microphone Input and select Disable. Right click on the Line INport and select Enable. Right click again on Line INPort and make this the default device. Click on the Playback tab and right click on Speakers INport and select Disable.
If Aero isn't available, it's Control Panel > Sound.

You can use any recording software that runs under your version of Windows 7. The LP Recorder software manual starts on page 8 of the Xitel Inport Deluxe manual. If you do not have the original disc, LP Recorder is available here: . (Audacity, , works much the same way as LP Recorder. However the drop down menus for the source and output are available from the main program with the default toolbars enabled.)

I hope this helps.

Need advice on how to use Advance Digital ADS Instant Music RDX-150

Assuming you have recording software on your machine already: (GoldWave, Audacity...)

Plug the USB cable into the back of the ADS and into the computer

Connect a line-level analog audio source (tape player, turntable, radio, amplifier, etc.) to the ADS using the appropriate cable to fit the source on the one end and has RCA connectors on the other - plug into the Audio In jacks (Red and White)

Ensure that the recording source on the computer is set to the appropriate USB port

Select record in the software and start the analog source playing

Note: If you are using a microphone, make sure it is amplified to line-level before using as a source.

L have numerous old vinyl records, 33 and 45 rpm and l would like to record them onto my computer, and don't know what is required. l was advised to find a cord to plug into the headphone plug on my amp...

Lots of advise on the web with various solutions, You can use a 1/8 jack to 1/8 jack or an adapter depending on the size of the amp jack. Some sites don't recommend this, but if you make sure your sound levels are low (PC and Input source)to start you won't blow anything. Some set ups don't need your stereo at all and software is available at various prices and quality. Check out reviews. Depending on your current set up and turntable you may need a preamp, newer ones are built in. You can get USB equipment like turntable with usb and RCA inputs to make it a little easier and 1/8 line in jack to connect other equipment like a tape player(about $100.00). Be cautious about the software, lots make promises that they can't keep. Cheap is as cheap gets. EZVinyl converter and ITunes is troublesome, Audacity is complex for advanced users. Try LPRIPPER.COM its expensive but I've heard good things and you can download a trial. Lots of How to sites can be Googled. Read a few, they all don't always consider everything you might find useful.

Need Adaptor connect DJ Tech Turntable to Sony Mini Hi Fi MHCRG495

The USB turntable is likely a USB data connection and not a USB audio connection, so you will need to take the audio output from your Mac G4 to your Sony Mini Hi Fi...

You will likely need a stereo mini-plug (3.5mm or 1/8-inch) to stereo RCA plug cable (red and white RCA plugs). This is often referred to as a "stereo Y-cable."

Hi! You must use a firewire in order to receive power - if you're going to use composite cables (red, white, yellow) you will have to purchase an AC adapter.
