Yes you can. Set the volume low on your record player and the line in jack, and test it until you get it to a normal level. Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya. :c)

How to transfer vinyl to cd-simply-I have manual but very confusing-simple step by step needed-thank you-Al B


The popular recording software known as Audacity is a good choice for getting all sorts of sounds saved in a digital format. The easy-to-use features of this program will help you to create complex musical compositions, or just record incoming audio streams. One of the basic things you can do with Audacity is to record sound from vinyl records. Many people still keep vinyls on hand, though the production of this medium has diminished. Here are the basic steps that will help you to use Audacity to record vinyl.

Steps

  1. Get your phonograph or record player. Assemble your collection of records and make sure that your record player is in good functioning condition.

  2. Use a cable to connect your record player to the computer with Audacity installed on it. In order to record from vinyl, you'll need to make sure you have accurately connected your record player as an incoming audio stream into the microphone jack of your computer.

    • Use hardware adapters to secure your cable connection. Many older record players utilize a 1/4-sized input jack. The modern laptop computer, as well as many desktop models, use a smaller, 1/8-sized input jack. You can buy simple adapters at your local electronics store to fix this problem.

    • Make sure that your cables and adapters support stereo.


  3. Open the Audacity program on your computer. You will see the signature Audacity screen, with controls at the top, and an empty space to accommodate created tracks.

  4. Start playing the record on your record player.

  5. Hit the red circle that represents the "record" button in Audacity.

  6. Observe the sound coming into Audacity. You should see the track being populated with sound, represented by a fluctuating line as the cursor moves along.

  7. Hit "Stop" to stop the recording.

  8. Stop the record player.

  9. Repeat this process with the entire track. Reset the record player, start playing and hit the Audacity "Record" button again, allowing the entire track to populate with the sound of the vinyl record.

  10. Save your project in your desired format. Audacity supports a number of file formats for the finished product. You can select one of these when you have recorded the entire track. Make every song its own track, or simply record the entire side of the record on one track.

Convert vinyl to mp3


There are a number of record players with included software that can be plugged into a USB port, but you could also use any HiFi and connect the audio output to the microphone input of a PC -- most likely with a cord with two RCA jacks to a stereo mini phone plug. The free Audacity software can record, filter, normalize and save the output to almost any audio format.

Why can I not record to a CD from the "aux in" port?


Your question has not provided enough information. Are you trying to record vinyl onto a cd?
You cannot record onto a normal cd player. You need a cd burner(/recorder).
Vinyl turntables have a quieter output signal too so unless you have a device that has a phono (vinyl) input you will not be able to record your vinyl. If you have a laptop then the easiest way to record vinyl onto cd is to buy a soundcard that has phono input. You can then use free software (programme) like audacity to record your vinyl and covert it to a format (wav aiff or mp3) to burn to cd using iTunes or Windows Media player.

Seal Turntable - lousy recording!


HELLO

These cheaply-made turntables only do ONE job and that is to archive your record collection. Not surprised by the fact the record plays great on your normal turntable.

The arms on these turntables have quite a heavy tracking weight to them and you cannot adjust it. My advice to you is if you want to archive vinyl there are plenty of quality HIFI turntables out there that will blow away your Seal turntable. Don't be tempted to put a small coin on the headshell as this will INCREASE the weight and probably damage your record.

A friend of mine has one these awful Seal tables and I think they are pretty bad sound quality, also they go under many different brand names.

AVOID!

How do i fix vinyl records that warped due to being in heat


Depends how bad they are. If only slight then you might get away with a heavy weight on it. Protect the record with card, you might have to leave it a long time.
Warm it up somehow, don't apply heat direct to the vinyl.

Having said that I must tell you I have had no success with any I tried to rescue any of my records.

Play phono - vinyl records


You need to purchase a phono preamp (about $20) and then the output of the preamp can be connected to any line level input on the receiver (tape, CD, DVD etc.)

Difficulty with recording


It sounds like you have connected the two correctly. I can only imagine that you need to check that the hifi source selector is switched to that line-in, it may be referred to as AUX. Check that the recording level control is not at zero on the hifi and if there is a volume control for line-out on the tascam. If you are able to listen to the recording on via the hifi then you are halfway there even if it doesn't get to the hifi recorder. If your hifi is a seperates system then you could try plugging the tascam in to the CD input on the amplifier.
