Record Vinyl 24bit / 96kHz and use a preamp

I am recording my vinyl at 24bit / 96kHz. Occasionally a record will be recorded low and will be close to the noise floor. I would like ot get a preamp to increase the gain but the preamps I see on Amazon ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00025742A/ref=s9_simh_gw_p23_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=175P8RZZQ8QG8KA076VG&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846 ) say they have a response of 20Hz to 20kHz and I am afraid that will "clip" my 24/96 recordings. Am I correct? What unit should I be looking for?

If you are increasing the level of an analog turntable's output, a preamp with 20-20,000 response will work just fine. It's unlikely any record will even approach 20K on the high end.

SOURCE: Preamp noise

Hi KenO2

First thing to check is that the phantom power is not turned on. If you are using a condenser mic, then it should. If you are using dynamic mic, then it will crackle and makes weird noises in the manner you describe. Other than that it sounds like you have a failing op amp in your preamp. This sort of repair work is not expensive(with respect to the outcome). I would anticipate $40-60 to fix it. Trouble is you can replace it super cheap at the moment 45% off for $64.95plus $9.95 shipping from zzsounds

So I guess that it may not be worth repairing, and more a replacement item for that money. If you have a mate with electronics experience, you could just replace the opamps at home for $10 worth of parts.

If you think my advice helped you to work out what to do, a FixYa rating would be great. Cheers

regards
robotek

SOURCE: I have a Carver C-15v preamp well it haves noise

get a can of cold spray from an electronics industry supplier.
it cools to -51 f.
you have a bad transistor in the phono stage.if you spray it with freeze,the noise will go away.
i would just replace those transistors,
some have an op amp like a ua741 8 pin chip.
that will cause the same problem.
there is a fet version of the op amp,same problem.
if you get an audio tracer,you will hear the noise,and where it is coming from.
you can use an oscilloscope,but they cost 1000 and up.
you will see the noise waveforms.

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

I have a Kenwood KR V6090 tuner amp. Can anyone please tell me if I need a record deck with or without a pre amp fitted.


Hi. Some amplifiers provide power for a record deck (or you mean a vinyl record player). Some vinyl record player have their one amplification system, some don't. Those with the amplification system work fine on older amplifiers but others require a back-up power, like a transformer to provide power for the record player. You need to enquire with the store person on the type of record deck or record player you can use directly with the V6090. I had an early Pioneer Amplifier and a matching record player so that I could play the vinyl disc and LP's on full volume. Later I switched to digital Pioneer 7 channel. This couldn't accept the record player because it did not have a power substitute like the older Pioneer. So, when the record player plays, no signal is being sent to the amplifier and therefore, no music is heard, except from the needle.

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.

Preamps, turntable and 24bit / 96kHz recording


You need an ADC ( analogue to digital converter) along with a phono preamp to restore the RIAA correction to the turntable output. Check out musicdirect dot com for some examples. Alpha Design Labs makes a great one that retails at $500.

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.
