I just bought some groovy new records:Aja, Bluesbreakers W/ Clapton, Parallel Lines, and I wondering how you record 'em. What kind of program do you need?

Well, you need a D/A converter and some sort of program on your computer. I don't know though since everything I use is outboard.
Just buy the CD on half.com and sell it back right away.

you run your turntable into the line in port of your soundcard. then you use a recording program to record the song. You may need a preamp for best sound quality.

for best results use digital performer, protools or cubase with a sound card that has good preamps. something like a motu traveller, digi oo2, rme fireface. then are some good plugins on the market for getting rid of unwanted noise such as waves xclick xcrackle xhum, however if you dont know what you are doing with these you will degrade your signal considerably. mostly when i convert vinyl to cd i don't use any denoise softwares unless it is something super old like a 78 rpm record that has been not well kept.

if you don't have access to any software or a decent soundcard then run a line out from your amplifier to your inbuilt soundcard. to do this you will need rca to stereo 3.5mm jack. the quality will be average but passable to ears that don't know what they are listening for when it comes to aural quality.

I saw an advert at the weekend for a 'USB Turntable' that simply connects straight to your computer with some simple software. I don't know what the quality i like though, since I haven't read any reviews.

Here's one priced at 119.95 (@$240.00?): http://www.firebox.com/index.html?di...01&src _t=wnp

I've been looking for a way to do this, but I don't really want to splash out as it would have very limted use ie once things have been converted, it won't get used again.

I use my Harmon Karden cd recorder as a component to my stereo system. You have to manually record, and manually select the track breaks, but it does a nice job.
