Recording LP phonograph records to .WAV file for CD burning
Many people would like to record their favorite old LPs to their computers and make audio CDs from these recordings.
This involves recording the LP to the computer's hard drive, using software to de-noise and de-click the audio and then transferring the results to a CD-Recordable disc that can be played by a standard CD player.
Users often try to take the analog audio signal from their stereo receiver's Tape Monitor outputs and feed this to the Line Input on their soundcard. This should work fine as long as the soundcard's inputs are set up properly.
To record an LP to your hard drive, follow these steps:
1) Obtain a cable: 1/8" stereo miniplug that splits off into stereo RCA male plugs:
(available in the Accessories section on our Web site)
2) Connect the Tape Monitor outputs of your stereo receiver, integrated amplifier or phonograph preamplifier to the stereo Line In on your soundcard.
3) Place your LP on the turntable and set your stereo's input selector to PHONO.
4) On the computer, open AudioStation 32. In the upper left corner of the Audio Mixer module, click on the Mixer Control Select icon.
5) Select the Recording Control from the popup menu.
6) Click on the Line In button to select it. The Line In button should now be lit bright blue.
Keep AudioStation 32 open, in case you need to adjust the volume of the soundcard's Line Input.
7) Now open AudioView 32 by clicking on the Launch Editor button in the lower right hand corner of the AS32 File Player.
This will open AudioView 32.
8) In the menu bar in AudioView 32, click on File, then New.
9) This will open the Sound Selection dialog. Do not accept the default audio file format; choose CD Quality from the Name: drop down list. This is actually stereo 16-bit 44.1kHz sampling rate audio format, which is the required format for CD Audio discs.
10) Now get ready to record. Cue up the LP record and click the big, red Record button in AudioView 32. The Record and Pause buttons will flash on and off, indicating that you are in Record/Pause mode. Record/Pause mode allows you to monitor the level at the Line Input.
11) Play a selection from the LP and watch the LED-style level meters in AudioView 32. It is a good idea to start with a piece that has a loud portion. This will allow you to set the levels so that no part of the recording will overload.
The fourth red level indicator to the far right in the AudioView 32 level meters is the "0.0" mark. Digital recordings cannot go over "0.0" or you will get overload distortion ("0.0" indicates "full scale"). If the audio level indicators stay lit at the end of the scale for too long, your recording will probably come out distorted. On the other hand, you want to see the yellow LED's light up often, so that your recording doesn't come out too faint.
Adjust the Line Input level fader in the AudioStation 32 Audio Mixer until you find a good compromise setting that keeps the yellow indicators lit most of the time, but doesn't let the loudest peaks go all the way to the red end of the scale.
12) When you've found a good level, stop the record and cue it up to the beginning. Now press the Record button again in AudioView 32. You should see the Record button glow bright red, and the counter tick off the recorded time. Start the record playing and the meters should move <
