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.

I wish to transfer my vinyl records to my Brennan JB7.My record deck is a B&O Beogram RX2 2 phono plugs only,black & white. How do i do it? Thank You. Les Hillier


Having looked at the Brennan it can't record music only copy it.
So what you need is some software such as Magix Audio Cleaning Lab. This will record the music from the record player and get rid of the clicks and noise from the tracks.
You also need a converter, these are simple enough and you can get them from Amazon. See image below you can even transfer video with the yellow RCA or SVHS lead. Your deck plugs into the red and white jacks and the usb into the computer. Once recorded you can transfer the files to the Brennan.

How to download songs to my cell phone


There are different ways of downloading songs to your phone. To download songs using the Internet, you should have a program to use for downloading.

For example: Lime Wire, you may install Lime Wire to your computer and then search the songs that you would like to download. After downloading your favorite song using Lime Wire, you need to save it into your computer and then, connect your phone using a USB cable.

After connecting the phone, right-click the song and then select "Send To" and then select your phone.

2nd option:

To download MP3 using a CD as your source of music, please follow the steps below:

- Connect the phone to the computer using a USB cable.
- Load the CD that carries the MP3 songs.
- Explore the CD and right-click the song that you would like to transfer.
- Select "Send To" and then select your phone.

3rd option:

You may transfer MP3 via Bluetooth. You may refer to the user manual of your phone on how to pair up your phone with another Bluetooth enabled phone and then transfer music.

Where can I get an old vinyl recording repaired and converted


yes it can be done i have done this many time for many people... you will need to find someone who knows what they are doing with delecate vinyl... you could either locate a specialist on the web who will be able to take the track off the record and remaster it before it goes on the cd taking out all the clicks and cracks sounds and any imperfections in the sound caused by the damaged vinyl. this option could be expensive. Just type "vinyl to cd services" in google and the search should yeal what you are looking for.

or...

you could ask any good dj/bedroom dj you know or a friend might know to do it for you, as any good dj will know how to treat a damaged record and will certainly be able to transfer on to cd for you. although... depending on the dj's skill level he may not be able to remove any click sounds or audible imperfections? throw him a tenner and supply the cd im sure he will be happy to help!
