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?

Re: Unwanted recording overlays
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 :)

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.
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: http://www.cfbsoftware.com/lprecorder/lprecorder.aspx . (Audacity, http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ , 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.)
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.
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.
