You have to export what you recorded to mp3, then unplug the turntables USB from the puter, and "Voila!"

My Jensen JTA 450 is playing LPs too slow even though 33RPM is already set. The songs are slower than usual. Please help me.

The record that you are trying to play maybe a 45rpm recording. Some 45's were released in album size recordings.

Not all of the sound/music is being transferred from the LP.Hard to explain, but its when the LP has sound coming out of each speaker independent of one another, only one side is coming out on the recorded...

I know this is an old post, an I dont' have a solution yet, but t seems the same problem as on my Ion USB recorder - One of the input channels is not working. Like you, I found one of my music tracks not plying right - there was only the instrumental and no vocal. When I experimented, and changed round the jacks on the cable coming from the turntable (red and white plugs), I then got only vocals and no instrumental. Obviously one of the input sockets on the USB recorder is no longer working (I already checked the turntable and cable itself by playing back he same track with both stereo channels through my amplifier). You can either get the item replaced if its still under guarantee, or fix it yourself, if you have the necessary skills, neither of which apply to me.

I have a technics turntable must be at least 25 plus years old . i managed to get the sylis but no sound comes out the speakers, i am told what i need is a magnetic amplifier and speakers to match ......

You need an amp that has a PHONO input or you have to get a phono pre-amp and run it 's output into a tape or AUX input on the amp with the turntable plugged into the pre-amp input.

No sound is coming out when usb is connected

Modern computers have various speaker options, much like amps. What you need to do is to find your actual speaker setup, and then place that as the default rather than the windows default.
Instructions for Windows 7, although others should be similar - Click on the windows start button (Lower left hand corner) - Control Panel - Sound (If you change your 'view by' option to small/large icon, you'll find this easier) - Playback tab
Here you will notice a color meter beside different speaker output options. One will be active when you play music, but no sound will come out as your speakers aren't actually connected physically to that device. You have two options here.
1) Easiest, but may cause problems in future if you change your speakers - Double click on the speaker, and disable it.
2) This option requires a bit more work, but will leave everything else enabled. - Double click on a speaker that doesn't have the meter moving - Advanced Tab - click the test button. If you hear sound, then this is the speaker setup you want. If not, try the next one. - close that pop-up window for the individual speaker, and go back to the main sound menu (Playback Tab) - single click on the speaker that works, and towards the bottom of the playback tab is an option to set it to default. Click on that.

Distorted, cracked sound coming through to the speakers

is it possible your new reciever has a built in phono pre-amp?

If so, you need to switch off the pre-amp inside the turntable (lift up the rubber matt, and rotate the plate untill you see the switch at the back)

Try again now?

The needle itself will not induce drag on the record. Even worn needles play no role in the problem you describe. The belt, provided it has suffcient tension to turn the platter, is doing it's job. The most likely source of malfunction is the motor itself. Try sliding the speed switch back and forth while the turntable is turning. If you see no difference in the speed between the 33 1/3 rpm setting and the 45 rpm setting, you have most likely eliminated all sources of the malfunction other than the motor. They are very prone to failure. If a replacement can be found, the job of installing it is not particularly difficult but indeed should be left to someone skilled at soldering electronic parts.

Hi I just want to play my lp's without going through the computer - but - I cant get any sound to come out of the inbuilt speakers? what am I doing wrong?

Go to control panel-click on sound-there are three tabs. Click on playvack and choose your speakers-not the USB Audio Codec. Press OK to save.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed

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.

Loud bang from speakers

i would suggest that you check the condition of the stylus, because the sound could be prouduced when the needle is lifted and the diamond tip is damaged so it makes a loud noise, normally a loud crack.
