There do exist turntables with a USB port.

Or, if your turntable just has the "post-and-ring" RED and WHITE stereo audio RCA-jacks, then you need an adapter to merge the two audio channels, and to connect to the "microphone-input" socket on your computer.

Then, tell Audacity to listen to that "microphone-input", and record from that source.

Music volume low when digitizing vinyls


The software itself should come with an sound imput level control. But if you can't find it or it's on full then there are ways round it. However it depends on how the turntable is connected to your computer. Most turntables require in an amp to have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to boost the level to that say of a tape. Rather than mess around sometimes it's better to get one of these pre-amps and have that between the turntable and the computer. Then the sound should be the same level as a tape signal. You will have to bypass that pre-amp if you are recording anything else such as tapes to your computer. Or you will get a noisy loud signal!
Just search for a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" on the web.

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 will have got the audio muted in your windows recording mode. If you right click on your speaker icon it will say recording devices. Click that and you will be able to see all the devices and if they are activated.

I purchased a Vibe Sound 3 Speed Turntable w/USB to PC and it does not have sound when I plug it in to the USB. The record is spining and I can hear sound from the needle.


The turntable won't make sound on its own when connected to the USB port. There are probably some drivers on the CD packed with the table that you'll need to install, and then you'll need to select the device in the Windows sound control panel. You'll also need some software to record and edit your vinyl if you want to transfer your records to CD.

I'm not familiar with the brand of turntable you have, just the ION, but it probably came bundled with some application on a CD. The ION table comes with Audacity, as well as some trial versions of audio processing (click and pop filter, hiss remover, etc.). Audacity is free, open-source software you can download here if you want it. It allows you to listen to and record your vinyl audio as wave files, then edit it, split tracks, add effects, and other fun things.

Once done, edit and trim the beginning and end. Import to itunes. Create a playlist. Burn to cd. Simple.
