LP and computer

LPs can now be recorded onto your computer or lab-top. All you need is a list of the items you need to accomplish the transfer of your LPs to your computer: some albums, a turntable with a reasonable cartridge, a phono preamp, a pair of RCA cables, a computer with sufficient hard drive space, a software application that can record audio directly to the hard disk in the computer, a hardware interface (AKA, a soundcard), a software application that can record digital audio files to the CD burner in the computer, and some blank digital media.

In the same vein, it's now pretty easy to transfer MDs to your computer (and on to CDs etc). Maybe you all knew about this already, but I was really happy to discover that I could get my old concert performances transferred to a more usable medium. You just need the program Final Vinyl (same one used for LP transfers) and a cable called an iMike. Brilliant! You can also do simple edits in Final Vinyl, like cleaning up the time before movements, removing over-long thunderous applause... (we hope).
