Question about ION Audio iPTUSB Turntable

1 Answer

ION USB recording mainly room sound, only little album sound!

I just bought an ION IPTUSB turntable and hooked up everything. It seemed to be recording ok, but when I playback, the album is very faint, and 'my noise', meaning conversation, furniture movement is crystal clear! I've varied the gain, but that doesn't seem to affect it. Help!?

How can I record from the turntable on my Ford Mustang Ion to my Ipod nano?

Advertising says;

4-in-1 retro music center with turntable, radio, USB and aux input
  • 3-speed belt-drive turntable plays all your records
  • Records your albums onto USB flash drive
  • Sensitive FM tuner with speedometer look
  • Built-in speakers and headphone jack for private listening; Auxiliary input for connecting and playing other devices

  • So record to USB, put the USB into the computer and transfer it using Windows File Explorer, using right click, drag, copy here, so a file location on the hard drive like 'My Music'. Then connect your iPod and transfer it. You may have to buy the 'iTunes Match Package' to allow you to use music not purchased from Apply. It is $24 a year.

    My ion USB turntable picks up sounds from the room and adds them to the file

    Try reducing the audio imput to your computer and make certain the computer microphone isn't switched on during recording etc. IE the Sound Control on your computer (such as SoundMax).

    When i go to record screen, something is only picking up room sounds and NOT anything from turntable

    Check your PC's sound settings. Its mic is probably ON while its other sound interface(s) may be muted and Big Brother hears everything.

    I have purchased a turntable with ez audio converter. I record one side of an album and it says recording complete. I click next and after a minute the software opens itunes and says converting temp1. Wait...

    You can record the entire album, both sides without having to press next. When the entire album has been recorded then press next, you will a dialog box that allows you to name the album and songs. Make sure you have the most up to date software from the ION website- that is if you have an ION turntable. Go to ION website and locate your turntable- software will be on that page. Run it and it should correct any problems.

    Ambient sound is louder than the music

    I have a Mac (OS X 10.5.7) and had the same problem with the Ion TTUSB system picking up room noise. This seemed to fix it: 
    In System Preference, under Hardware, choose "Sound".
    Choose "Input".
    Under "Choose a device for sound input" choose USB Audio CODEC  type: USB

    I hope this helps,

    Distorted sound quality randomly

    My first thought would be the rubber drive belt, as it gets hotter it might get a little bit stretchy and then when you give it a break it gets less stretchy [make sense ] but thats only my guess as i,ve had turntables for over 25 yrs , but then that wouldnt account for the mettalic sound, that would only be if the platter was slightly warped and hitting the chassis [the main unit ]

    Using mac with the ion turntable to record vinyl--it records fine and imports into itunes, but when I play songs back I cannot hear any sound. Computer is set to 'line in' for sound input and 'internal...

    Funny thing about analog to digital recording without a preamp. You will record a signal, but that signal might be below the level of human audibility, if the line levels are left at the level that left the turntable, given the absence of a PREAMP.

    LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed

    1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.


    2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.
