    Default Vinyl Studio

    I am having a trial of this program, with a view to recording my vinyl. My new Phono stage can do this at various bit rates. Just started my first one, and will see how it goes. if it works reasonably I will get it I think. The Screens seem well laid out.
    Anyone using this?

    Hi Grant

    No I have not used Vinyl Studio, I have done the same with Audacity which may not be quite so intuitive but has lots of feature and gives good results IMO. I usually just record a whole side and then spilt it up into the individual tracks and then do the other side and then save to the digital format I want. I mainly do this for albums I want to have with me in the car.

    Cheers

    Adrian

    I have also been digitising some of my vinyl that never made it to cd, particularly my world music titles and compilations. I have been using one of these which I bought last year. http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazin...zphono_usb.htm

    The Parasound allows recording with and without RIAA equalisation with the option to add EQ via software later. I tried Vinyl Studio and thought it very good but found Audacity a bit more flexible. I am also a registered user of Total Recorder Professional which does much the same thing. Although I have yet to start this project in earnest, I have been very surprised at the quality of the ripped files compared to the vinyl originals.

    Looks to be similar to my project unit. I got an acceptable result without digging deep or doing much and with the trial version of software so think I can improve on it with some effort.

    Think I can do the curves or do them digitally as well. Can also do 78's without playing at 78 apparently.
    There is a lot in this package and my phono so might as well take advantage of it

    Oh I've ordered a big hdd too to take the extra data so should be able to go up to 24/192 if I wish.
    It's a 6tb usb3.

    I use it and find it very straightforward in operation.

    I like the way it can download the track names, splits and covers from discogs.

    Its then a simple matter to just adjust the track gaps and the resultant flac files sound really good using a Schitt Jil as an ADC.
