One of my side projects this year has been converting some of my old vinyl and cassette recordings to audio format.
This has been known to be a bit of a laborious task in the past when finding over complicated software programmes or computers with lack of memory don't always deliver the results you would like to achieve.
Thankfully the Audacity programme is very useful for this task and so far to my experience is very useful for converting audio and vinyl to digital format but also for editing and cleaning up recordings.
I've produced two guides how to convert your old records and tapes to vinyl on Suite101:
- Converting Your Cassette Audiobooks To MP3 Format
- Splitting Your Audiobook Recordings Into Chapters
