Yes it can be done i have done this many time for many people... you will need to find someone who knows what they are doing with delecate vinyl... you could either locate a specialist on the web who will be able to take the track off the record and remaster it before it goes on the cd taking out all the clicks and cracks sounds and any imperfections in the sound caused by the damaged vinyl. this option could be expensive. Just type "vinyl to cd services" in google and the search should yeal what you are looking for.

or...

you could ask any good dj/bedroom dj you know or a friend might know to do it for you, as any good dj will know how to treat a damaged record and will certainly be able to transfer on to cd for you. although... depending on the dj's skill level he may not be able to remove any click sounds or audible imperfections? throw him a tenner and supply the cd im sure he will be happy to help!

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.

Where can I sell vinyl records?


Don't expect to get much for them unless they are very rare editions in almost unplayed shape. You can try selling them on EBAY, go to swap markets or flea markets or antique dealers who deal in old radios and record players, or look in your area for used record stores (there are a few still around). Try VinylHunt com Hooking you up with independent record shops since 2006 Find... or Record Stores

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.

While recording and playing back the recording it sounds like there is cell phone or some electrical interferrence. this happens to the cassette and vinyl converts


There could be a loose connection between the turntable and the recording device. Normally, the connecting cables are shielded to prevent this sort of problem. Maybe different connecting wires are in order. Is your recording setup located near fluorescent lights or some other interference causing source?

Got record and it is not loud. never had any problems with other vinyl records sound quality. I want the songs to be converted to MP3 but the sound on them is so flat. other records I have converted sound...


Hi, maybe the record is worn and that's why the sound is low. By using third party audio editing software (i.e. cool edit [paid] or audacity [free]) you can improve quality and volume of digital sound.

I want to know how to operate iTTUSB.


I think it's plug and play. Plug the record player in the usb slot, let your computer find it, turn on your recording program, drop the needle on the record.
