How to Transfer Vinyl to CD, Record Music from a Vinyl Record to Your Computer

Price $159.95
  5. Making the Recording

Make sure the vinyl is free of all dust and dirt. There are some excellent commercial products available from Blaze Audio for washing the disc and cleaning your stylus before recording.

Set up for recording with RipEditBurn Plus or RipEditBurn by following the steps in Section 4, Recording: Setting Levels. Click the Record button before you start your turntable or tape player. Record all the way through and let the recording continue for a few seconds after playback has stopped. You can edit out the silences at the beginning and end later.

Stop recording by clicking Record a second time. If you saw the clipping lights go on during recording you should listen carefully to the loudest sections, to be sure there is no distortion. You may want to re-do parts of the recording at a slightly lower recording level.

If you are satisfied with your recording, use File>Save to save it to disk before you start editing. This will be a large file, and it will take a while to save it.

If you have a long vinyl record or tape to record, you can use Blaze Audio's program Power Record to start and stop recording automatically and to control the recording volumes while you are off doing other things. Power Record is described in the next section.
