Hi. I've been using the Ion TTUSB10 record player (plugged into my Mac), and seemingly randomly, I get a very distorted metallic sound coming out. I usually have to turn it off and wait a few minutes, and then it goes away for a while (about 10 records worth), and then comes back again. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Re: 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 ]

Maybe the output is not good enough for line in on laptop try mic in, then double click the sound icon down bottom right where time is, goto options, properties, then recording inside of recording make sure all boxes are ticked so you have all options like mic wave stereo mix line and so on, click ok, now make sure what ever you have the turn tables pluged into is selected as your recording device and not muted try again, once this is all ok ., it should work. hope this helps. also make sure your software you use to record is also set up same. take care
This one is real easy first off make sure you use good quality cables and hook it into a decent sound card I would avoid the usb connection especially if you have a lot of other usb stuff plugged in.
Then dump the software that came with it and get a copy of "Goldwave" or some other quality software.
I use goldwave to record OLD 78 rpm records which are really bad at throwing up noise. goldwave has filters that you can apply after you have finished recording
These are superb at getting rid of hiss crackle pops and a whole heap of other stuff. Its also pretty simple to use.
I have tried other software but keep coming back to goldwave. It also has some fancy tricks up its sleeve too if you want to get creative
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".
Under "Choose a device for sound input" choose USB Audio CODEC type: USB
Try setting the recordsettings of ur soundcard to "record what you hear". This way it will record ALL the sounds that are produced in windows. Warning: this also means that it could record an windows systemsound as well.
Hi if you click on control panel, click on hardware+sound,then click on the recording tab find it will show up as microphone USB Codec click on it, click the properties button,click on advanced tab,
in the default format make sure that " 2 channel,16-bit,44100Hz (cd quality)" is selected, the incorrect default is for 1 channel.
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.
