SOURCE: Is there a stereo input for the Dell Inspiron 1100 to record?

Yes, the input is stereo BUT you need to configure Audacity to do the stereo capture. Go to File > Preferences. Once in the preferences dialog, go to the third Drop-down menu, and change from MONO to 2-channel stereo. That is.

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 can i download my cassettes to my computer


If you want to be fancy, a company called ION makes a cassette player that plugs into a USB port on your computer. You can look at it here. The unit comes with software to capture the audio as you play your tapes.

You can also connect the tape player you already have to your computer's line-in audio jack. You'll need a cable with a 1/8-inch mini stereo plug at one end to fit the computer, and the appropriate plug(s) at the other end for the cassette player. If you use a boombox or other portable deck, the cable will need the same mini stereo plug and you can use the headphone jack. For a component cassette deck you'll need RCA plugs. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. With Audacity, you have tools to process the sound after it's in your computer to split tracks, add effects if you want, and to try cleaning up hiss or other quality problems. It's a great way to preserve tapes with voices of family members!

Question (not a "problem") -


Yes, you can. You need a cable (A 3.5 to 3.5 audio jack - you can buy it for a few bucks at your local store) that plugs into the Microphone jack in the computer and the Headphone jack in the cassette player. After that, use a recording software (Such as AudaCity) and select the input microphone as the recording device. All you have to do, is press Record in the software and push play on the player. Good luck and best regards,Yuri.

Can I record in stereo via the microphone/line-in jack? On the the Sigmatel interface when Line In is selected, I get no signal on either Audacity or Sound recorder software - but I do get a mono signal...


The input-level from a (monophonic) microphone is MUCH less than the input-level from a device (cassette player?) connected to the (stereophonic) LINE-IN socket.

So, crank-up the slider, to amplify the input.

Make sure that you're connecting into the LINE-IN port, if you want to record in stereo.

Record from tape deck to computer via USB and Audacity software


Im not sure what DIN sockets you're trying to describe here, but quite often, you can record from a tape player to a pc by connecting an rca cable to an adaptor; rca to 1/8"(headphone pin) and then plugging that headphone pin in to the microphone input on your computer.

Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work


Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.

Converter of audio cassettes to CDs


Get a computer with an audio input or soundcard. Like a Mac with garageband and a soundcard. connect both with a male 1/8" to male 1/8" cable. Press play on the tape deck, record on the computer. Once done, edit and trim the beginning and end. Import to itunes. Create a playlist. Burn to cd. Simple.
