my l33t t3ch sk1llz

Or should I say "Me smart, me can plug stuff in"?

I'm ripping my vinyl albums with the help of a Griffin Technology PowerWave USB amplifier and a shareware program called Sound Studio.

The PowerWave comes with a program called Final Vinyl that's supposed to let you rip from a turntable without an amplifier. But reports are that it's buggy, so I'm using the turntable's amplifier and Sound Studio instead.

I usually rip my CDs in iTunes using "High Quality" mode. The music I'm getting out of this setup sounds just about the same in terms of quality.

PowerWave and Sound Studio together cost about $150 retail. I have about 100 vinyl albums. Replacing all of them with CDs would be a heck of a lot more. (And some can't be replaced.)

Thanks for that I'll have a look at those.... I have about 200 vinyl albums that I'm hoping to get into digital form one day. Hope you enjoy your music!!

Hmm. We don't have nearly that many, but want to rip the ones that we do have. Interesting.

We've been re-ripping in a lossless format.

There are good free tools to do it.

Re: ripping
Sound Studio rips in a lossless format, but the files are huge, and I don't have enough disk space to store them all, so I'm converting them to Mp3.
