    Default can i make a CD from vinyl 33,3 rpm records?

    I'm old. I have recordings on vinyl records which I'd love to load onto an MP3 player. I've read the article on how to get cassettes to CD. Will that method work with records as well ?

    I know of no reason why it should not, but I have no idea what article you read.

    I have cassettes, records and reel to reel as mp3's.

    Cheers

    To transfer vinyl to digital you will need equipment (and patience).

    Have a look here at one "walk through" that may help.

    Best of luck.

    I used turntable, pre-amp, graphics EQ, made cable from RCA to mini plugs and used the following "All sounder recorder" to record as MP3's.

    I used Windows Medial Player to convert them WAV files if need, saved HD space.

    All Sound Recorderr's Web site:

    Couple of tricks are for badly scratched LP's I remember from years ago.
    One was I used a silicon spray on the records, helps soften the "pops" from scratches, but you will lose from frequency response. An other to help soften the pops was to use a "choke" but can't remember the value of the ones they suggest.

    Cheers

    Something that I have been doing over a long time. (have a collection of nearly 2000 Vynal LPs) some of which are rare.
    What equipment you use depends on what quality you are after, how many you want to convert and your budget.
    If you PM me and let me know what equipment you have (Stand alone turntable or HiFi system). If the latter what output sockets does it have.
    The software you have to record the tracks with and some details on the sound card, hard drive space.
    I can then show your or recommend the best way to go about this and end up with the best possible result.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
