Question for the audio nerds.

Recommended Posts

My uncle has some really old tapes with music that I can't find anywhere.

He just got a new cd player and I wanna make him some cd's, but we

don't know how to get that music.

 

 

My idea: I want to plug a tape player into my sound card via the aux.

ports and record the songs from his tapes, then break them into tracks

and burn them like that. Any input would be great.

I'd use a program called Sonar 2.0. Plug in the

tape player through the auxilery as you said

and set up Sonar so it's recognizing that input/

device. You can easily select the channel in Sonar

from the 'panel display' (I think) and hit record.

Play.

Stop at end of song.

Save off as .mp3 file.

 

You might have an easier time with another

program, though... unless you're familiar with

pro-audio software. Look on Downloads.com

SoundForge works as well.

 

Record

Cut the wave at the end of each song.

Save each segment as the .wav of that song.

Import to CD burning software.

Burn

Thanks everyone. Yes, SoundForge is what I'm familiar with. As soon

as I stop being lazy I'll get this shit moving.

Soundforge is alright for shit like that but it only does single tracks.

If you wanted to experiment with some cool as mixing and audio editing u could get cool edit pro. It allows u to do the same thing as Soundforge except like for instance, if u wanted u could make a mix and fade one of ur uncle's songs into the other and then and some effects. Or if u had a mike input u could record urself speaking and personalize his mix. That's pretty geeky but it's for low budget recording.
