Depending on the quality of finished CD you need, you may not need a sound card. Get a stereo 1/8 mini plug audio adapter with RCA jacks on the other ends. Be sure you are using a turntable with a pre-amplifier or buy an outboard pre-amp from MCM electronics. (MCMelectronics.com). Connect the turntable output to the RCA jacks on the 1/8 stereo adapter. Plug the 1/8 plu into the microphone jack on the Mac. (May also work with a Windows machine). Go to sound preference and select "line in" under input. You may need a free audio capture program such as Audacity, which will record whatever sound your mac is playing. Record. Connect an audio cassette player output the same way, but no pre-amp is needed. I have dubbed Walkman type players by simply plugging into the 1/8 headphone jack on the player, and the other end into the microphone input on the Mac. Not the best quality, but may be OK for most non-critical dubs. Second solution. More expensive. Get a USB audio adapter, anywhere from $6 to $85. Plug your RCA cord into the input from the audio source and connect the adapter to the USB port. Select appropriate input source from the sound preferences panel on the Mac. Be sure to select the box marked “play output through speakers” in order to monitor the audio. By the way, Audacity offers some sound editing and special effects, all for free. Download it and try it.

Get a computer with an audio input or soundcard. Like a Mac with garageband and a soundcard. connect both with a male 1/8" to male 1/8" cable. Press play on the tape deck, record on the computer. Once done, edit and trim the beginning and end. Import to itunes. Create a playlist. Burn to cd. Simple.

Turntables rarely play cassettes.

Try the manufacturer's website.

While recording and playing back the recording it sounds like there is cell phone or some electrical interferrence. this happens to the cassette and vinyl converts


There could be a loose connection between the turntable and the recording device. Normally, the connecting cables are shielded to prevent this sort of problem. Maybe different connecting wires are in order. Is your recording setup located near fluorescent lights or some other interference causing source?

How do I connect a Stanton T80 turntable to my PC?


Hi,
First of all you can try with the line input of your Pc audio card. There will be 3.5 mm stereo socket in the pc audio card (blue color ) which will marked as LINE IN. To connect the turntable to this socket you need a RCA to 3.5mm Stereo converter like on in the picture bellow. I have also added a link to a video which will help you to do the same. In the video the are showing a cassette deck. In you case Turntable in place of cassette deck.
You have to set the switch on the back of your Turntable to LINE OUT. Then you can use any software to record the signals from the LINE INPUT of your PC.

If you need a high quality recording the you have to use a special converter which will do the job neatly.


To convert or upload (copy) tracks in LP in good quality then you need a interface unit between the Turntable an PC. Which will convert the analog audio out to Digital signal ( RCA to USB). The unit will come with the driver for it. That you have to install on your PC.


Keep on thing in Mind that when your are using such a converter between Turntable and PC you have to set the switch on the back of your Turntable to LINEOUT.


Here i have added link which will lead you to such a USB converter. Which will provide you studio quality stereo.

I can not get my Crosley CR248 Songwriter to Finalize when I try to transfer from cassette to cd. It keeps showing me FAIL....


I don't know this particular machine but here are some general comments.
Most CD recorders need you to press (and sometimes hold) the record button followed by the play button before tehy actually record anything (if you don't press the play button you will still hear sound via headphones etc. but no recording file will be created)
Does it record from vinyl records okay or is it just cassettes?
Are you using the correct sort of CD?
We use a Denon CD recorder and it only works with AUDIO CDs - computer data CDs or CDRWs will not work in it. Even if the Crossley will accept computer CDs it may require a particular format either +ve or -ve (labelled CDR+ or CDR-) to be compatible. Once you have tried finalising a disk and it has failed you cannot use the same disk again.

Wont read some discs


People need to learn to leave more info if they want proper help!

What type of discs? You say some, are they CD-R, CD-RW, SACD, CD+R, CD+RW, standard store bought Audio CD?

When copying audio cds for playback in other players, always use CD-R to avoid any type of confilcts. CD-R will play in almost any CD player, even from the 80s. Some players say they will support CD-RW, but that is NOT GUARANTEED!

If it is Audio CDs, then the laser may be dirty. If it is MP3 cds or DATA cds, then try only putting one type of file on the disc, such as only MP3s, or only WMAs.

It sounds like you might have problems with your CDs. If you are burning CDs on your computer to play in the CDJ, you need to remember that it will only play audio (wav), or MP3 files. Also, blank data CDs are cheaper that buying audio / music CDs. When you burn your CDs to play back on the CDJ, you have to be sure to burn them as wav or mp3. AAC, MP4, OGG and the other formats will not work in the player. When you burn the CD, ALWAYS burn at a slower speed than what the computer will automatically burn at. You will have to manually set the speed yourself.

Personally- when i burn my tracks CDs for my CD book, I use trusted name brand blank data CDs such as Memorex, Sony, TDK, Fuji, Imation. I burn them as AUDIO ONLY. To avoid any reading mistakes that could happen with any given CD player, i NEVER burn track CDs as mp3. When i burn the CD, i set the writing speed to 24x, 30x, or 32x. I recommend that you DO NOT burn your CDs at any speed faster than 32x. From my experience, that is the fastest and safest burning speed. If you do these things, and you still have problems with the E-83 02 code, then it will only have to be the kind of CDs your using to burn, or your CD burner in your computer. Notice how i didn't mention Maxell CDs up top. 3 months ago, i bought 2 spindles of Maxell data blanks on sale for $9.99 each. I was happy i got them that cheap, but the CDs themselves were no good. Recording everything the way i do, they had popping noises and scratching sounds through-out the disc. I gave the spindles to my neighbor. He was happy to get blank CDs free. I WILL NOT say that Maxell makes a bad product: I still record on cassettes and Maxells are one of my top 3 choices for blank chrome tapes. But the discs i bought were just a bad batch. Maxell is still a trusted name for blank tapes with us older DJs that started out with recording on tapes before the CD format became way cheaper and affordable.

Try burning your discs as audio only, and burn them at 24x, 30x, or 32x ONLY. Buy better brand name data CDs, and you should have no problems. If you use my method as an example, and you still have problems, then you need to get a new CD burner for your computer. They are always cheaper at Staples or Office Depot. Hope **** works out for you : D
