Re: [vox-tech] Ripping Vinyl LPs

I'm not sure what the sound bridge is needed for. I have an Ion turntable and have
used it to rip LP's. My only problem was that the name audaciy stuck on the input
choice wasn't clear and left me floundering for a while. Once I realized the input
to select, it worked just fine. I ran the clean up function that was recommended
but I couldn't really tell the difference. Finding the breaks between tracks was a little
work as they did not stand out on the visual. It was worthwhile though as it
made it easy to write the result to CD as separate tracks.

Yes, the generic usb-turntable (ion, I got mine at costco a few years
back) that's everywhere now works well. You'll need good cleaning
supplies, I got a brush from the record store in mid-town.

I do not recommend going from a stereo or traditional turntable directly
to sound cards, you almost always want the conversion to happen outside
the actual machine so you don't get clicking from sounds inside your
case. Looks like ion now makes a generic usb sound bridge now too

Note: the ion brand stuff "software" is actually the open source
Audacity application, with a couple of add on filters and tools can find
and split your recording into individual tracks and compress to your
preferred format.
