    Just make sure you label what is not a CD Rip.

    well....if you want to be literal about it.....
    get some pliers, use a fingernail, whatever, pull out the tape....
    hold in one hand....and yank real hard with the other

    wanna comment on just wtf you meant by that question?

    My rips from vinyl/cassette/open reel are usually run through my trusty Sony 12-channel mixer. I pre-EQ with an ADC 12-band equalizer.

    Most capturing/processing is done with CoolEdit, which has a really good scratch removal plug-in (for vinyl) and noise reduction (analogue tape). Normalization is done with CE's hard limiting plugin (used moderately).

    CoolEdit's native mp3 encoding works very well (especially the VBR settings) but most people prefer LAME.

    If I don't want mp3s and want to go straight to CD first, I'll capture the entire LP side/cassette side as one file and burn to CD with CD Architect 5. That way I can assign track locations on a graphical timeline without touching the original file.

    My sources: Cassette is just a generic late-model Sony deck. Open reel is a TEAC 3440s. Turntable is a Thorens TD-160C with a B&O cartridge.

    Now... that, my friend is a great detailed description of analog ripping. I think it should be Pinned. With more details added of course. Slinger... whatcha think???

    Considering, I have 1000's of vinyl and lots of tape as well in cassettte and 8 track... some which will never be on disc, I think its a great idea for a pinned, because I am sure there are plenty of others out there that have large collections of analog they would like to save digitally.

    I only called it "ripping" 'cause that's what FKDUP74 and FuNkY CaPrIcOrN were calling it. Sorry if this hurt your feelings.

    Pre-EQ nuts? Not if it's an old cassette tape.

    analog sounds better anyway..? Are you referring to analog mp3s, or analog CDs?




    ...'cause that's what this thread's about, troll.
