Richard Mellish Tech: Transferring tape or vinyl to CD (80* d) RE: TECH: Transferring tape or vinyl to CD 01 Jan 19

This is a job that I have been procrastinating for many years.

I tried recording from my turtable to a DAT deck, and then transferring the tape to a second DAT deck close to my main computer, but that method is far two tedious for routine use.

Then I bought a turntable which has two apparently useful facilities. It will record to internal memory and then from that to a CD, the rationale being to avoid mechanical noise from the CD drive getting into the pickup while the record is playing. But that method is still pretty cumbersome. This device also has a USB output, but I was dismayed to find that that is mono. Heaven knows why.

Most recently I have gone back to my previous, better quality record deck and taken the signal from that to a Tascam DR-40, which is one of the now common small portable devices that record direct to memory card.

But I have done that just for a few tracks for a friend; not yet any of my own LPs. Will I get round to it before I die? That's "a definite qualified maybe" (to borrow a phrase from an old friend, now deceased).
