Ion TTUSB sound breakdown soon into recording

My Ion turntable plays fine through my stereo amp, but when trying to record vinyls using audacity onto an Imac the sound breaks down with crackling interference in the music either during the first track or the second track. My Imac has an intel core duo chip.

Any ideas?

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.

How do I recovery temporary files in Audacity ?


If you are on Windows you can get it to display hidden files (such as system files) With luck it might show up your missing files. Just type "show hidden files" in the help on Windows and follow the instructions.

Set your Audacity software to STEREO MIX on the main window. Go into EDIT, Preferences and set the recording device to your sound card and the channels to 2 stereo.

Volume is too low even with Gain turned to maximum. Also talking during recording gets picked up on the recording.


Your computer sound controls govern input volume and the use of a microphone. If you have a mic, find the control and turn it OFF.

Resulting mp3 files are HUGE


Are you certain that you're recording in MP3 format?That large file size seems much like .wav files than .mp3 thing.


But if that's really .mp3 file,you may need to adjust the bit rate&sampling rate.Typically, 12 kbps and 44.1 KHz would be a good starting point.


And about shrinking files you've already done,try file convert software(s) around the web(try Google it).Too many of them to recommend here.But I personally use Wavepad Sound Editor for record,edit and save files in various format.

I would like to transfer music from a cassette to my laptop. How do I do this using EZ Vinyl/Tape converter? Thanks


Even simpler than that program is Audacity. You can download it free. The easiest way to accomplish what you want to do is this. Go to WalMart and buy a double male ended headphone cord for about $5 Plug one end into the headphone jack on the tape deck, plug the other end into your microphone jack on your computer. Be sure to turn down the volume to about 10% on the tape deck. This will keep the sound from becoming destorted. Press record on Audacity and start the tape. You can see it record as it plays. Then save that Sound file as the name of the song.
