    I've started to rip all my LP's to my HD. For all you 14 y.o. a LP is big round (often black) vinyl objects that one used to record music onto and sell in stores like the ones you get CD's in nowadays. I like LP's alot because I feel the background noise brings an extra warmth to the music, therefore I won't apply much noise reduction... (I mean if you want CD-quality get it from someone else). I think I am also going to put each side into one big mp3 so that each folder will be looking approx like this:


    D:&#092;MUSIC&#092;LP-RIPZ&#092;<Artist> - <Year> - <Album Title>&#092;side A.mp3 and
    D:&#092;MUSIC&#092;LP-RIPZ&#092;<Artist> - <Year> - <Album Title>&#092;side B.mp3


    I&#39;ll be ripping them using Wavelab @ the highest quality variable bitrate (somewhere around 256 I think it is)...

    I&#39;ve only just begun the project and it&#39;s gonna take a while before I&#39;m done.... for now I&#39;ve only ripped and shared a 45 rpm single (a bit smaller round, black object that contains only one or two songs on each side) with a sweedish punk-band called The Grinners, but it&#39;s in my folders if you wanna check out the quality....

    You can use a sound recorder like Sound Forge.

    That is often good enough.

    I know you&#39;re kidding. You are kidding, right?

    Anyway for a good laugh, check out 8-track heaven. They definitely aren&#39;t kidding, though.

    I&#39;ve been ripping from vinyl (I&#39;ve about 1200 LPs, 800+ 45s, some EPs) with my trusty Thorens TD160 turntable using CoolEdit Pro 2. It has a really good scratch removal plug-in, which I use sparingly.

    For downloading convienience, I break the files down to individual tracks (after volume normalization), then convert to mp3 (VBR 256) using CEP&#39;s batch process, then ID3 tag (with ripping info) using Winamp.

    Soulseekers seem to be liking it, based on my U/L queue.

    I put an empty text file labeled "_ripped from vinyl" in the album&#39;s folder. If they miss that and are still pissed, they can always sue me.
    (seriously: haven&#39;t had any complaints yet)

    I use the "tape out" from my home-stereo amplifier into the computer... then I adjust the sound using wavelab to be close to 0 db on the peaks. I record each side into one big wav-file and then encode the wav to VBR mp3
