Question about ION Audio iTTUSB Turntable

4 Answers

Audio output I had problems with Audacity conflicting with other software so I connected the RCA Audio out put straight into my sound card. It works fine and I can make .WAV files. The problem is that loud passages cause distortion. I have it switched to line. The sound card is a RealTek ALC 655 built in toan ERX Mother board. Is this correct or ought it be switced to phono I thought of building an attenuator but would need to know the audio o/p voltage and impedances antheimput impedance of the sound card whichisn't quoted in the manual. Comments and help please

Switching to the phono mode is preferable

Your settings are OK if you connected the RCA to the audio input on the card. However, you can also try the PHONO settings, just to make sure.

Normally, with a line in setting, there is bound to be distortion on a higher volume..

Hello paedero!!!

Try switching it into phono mode, then insert a small screw driver about 1/4 inch deep into each input RCA untill you get a big hum. That should be the phono input.

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.

Appears to be installed properly but doesn't record


When you first connect the turntable, Windows XP (and Mac OSX) will often select the "USB Audio Codec" as the audio input and output for your entire system. Since your turntable does not have speakers, audio will not be heard from your programs until you tell Windows not to use the turntable as an output device. Here's how to change these settings so that your internal sound card will always be used for playback whether or not your ION TTUSB is connected via USB:
    For Windows:
  1. On the bottom left of your screen, select the "Start" menu.
  2. Select "Settings" then "Control Panel".
  3. In the window that opens, select the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. (If you don't see a choice called "Sounds and Audio Devices," choose the "Switch to Classic View" option in the panel on the left of the window, and the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon should become available in the list on the left.
  4. Select the "Audio" Tab at the top of the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control panel window.
  5. Under "Sound Playback," choose your internal sound card as the default device. This varies by computer but should not be set to "USB Audio Codec" or "Microsoft Sound Mapper".
  6. Under "Sound Recording," select "USB Audio Codec" for your default device.
  7. Check the box titled "Use only default devices".
  8. Click "Apply"...then "OK".


    For Mac:
  1. Open your Hard Disk.
  2. Open your "Applications" folder.
  3. In the "Applications" folder, open the "Utilities" folder.
  4. In the "Utilities" folder, open the "Audio MIDI Setup".
  5. In the "Audio MIDI Setup" under Audio Devices, set:

    • "Default Input" to "USB Audio Codec"
    • "Default Output" to "Built In Audio"
    • "System Output" to "Built in Audio"

Now, all programs, including Audacity, will only use your internal sound card for audio output.

Getting lidl silvercrest turntable / audacity to transfer records to computer


Assuming you've installed the Audacity software, first check your recording device. If you use Windows, first check the Audio Control Panel. For Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Under Sound, click on the Manage Audio Devices link. In that window, click on the Recording tab. Select the USB option and make it the active device.

In Audacity, you may also need to make sure that this is the recording device that is active. That should be the third drop down from the left in the Device Toolbar. (If it isn't visible, click View > Toolbars and check it.) The Device Toolbar is right above the recording trace section in my version of Audacity.

Now click Record (the red circle) and start your turntable. Do you see a change in the trace? You should see a flat line for up to 10 seconds and then see this change to a set of high and low values.

If you don't get this, check if your USB ports are working. If you use a USB hub, try a direct connection. Check the device manager under Universal Serial Bus for a triangle with a red x or a yellow triangle. Try updating the driver by right clicking on the device. Also check Windows Update (for an optional update) or your computer manufacturer site for a new driver.

Unfortunately with the USB, you can't hear the recording as it is made. Do a short recording and then stop it. Then play back the selection. Adjust the input volume level lower if your trace is hitting the top of the box. This is clipping and your recording won't include the full signal from your record.

I've used Audacity for recording cassettes through the line in port. You can do this with some turntables if you add a pre-amplifier and use RCA to 3.5 mm adapter. Connect to the line in on the back of the desktop (blue).

If you could not install Audacity, go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ to get a version that works on your computer's OS.

I hope this helps.

You can get a cable to convert the two outputs from the turntable to a 3.5 if that will help. Amazon should have them. Picture below:

You have to listen through the Audacity software. Once you start Audacity, click on the down-arrow on the toolbar next to the microphone symbol and choose Monitor Input. You will need to do this every time you start Audacity.

No sound after multiple attempts. No sound levels changing


several people are having this trouble but most seem to work ok .. the unit has its own built in preamp and digital interface so, in this case, you dont have to worry about what cartridge it has .. in fact you can hook its rca outputs to the aux of an amplifier (not the phono input) .. or you can connect them to your amplified computer speakers thru an RCA sterio to 1/8 inch jack adapter ... i am working on a solution remotely since i dont have the unit yet ... but here is a suggestion (for xp) .. find the volume icon in the bottom right task bar .. double click on that .. that should bring up a box with several volume controls .. make sure none have "mute" checkmarked .. turn up all the controls so you cant miss anything if it comes thru ..try the table ... now click on "options" in that volume control box then "properties" then put a dot for "recording" .. select all of the volume controls in the bottom box .. now click ok .. that will give you some level controls for recording . turn them up ..then select them one at a time to see if any work (with table playing) .. if none of that works then there is likely an incompatability .. you might look for upgraded drivers for your audio card .. .. i will likely have more on this as i remotely get one working or if i can find one to play with .. maybe a few days .. some audio cards turn off sound outputs when you are in the record mode .. thats so you dont get screeching thru the mic input .. but there is usually a way to defeat that .. the units software should have done that for you .. i have found some popular laptops that horrably dont have sterio inputs (only monoral for the mic input) ... on a few that can be fixed with special software but on others (like my inspiron 6000) there is no hope ... i purchased an audio input adapter that connects to the USB port .. that gives you several analog inputs that are sterio .. your turn table's digital output doesnt need analog inputs so you are ok unless you want to use the RCA jacks as audio input ..
