There are 2 companies that use the Acoustica name. - You need the other one. Honest I'm not Joking. The company you need is called Acon Media www.acondigital.com
You need a line level output from a pre-amp to connect to your PC. If the preamp as a "tape out" this will usually do the trick. If not you need a phono pre-amp. In either case the connection is the same. deck to amp (or phono pre-amp) then amp (or pre-amp) to PC.
The deck will probably have twin RCA (phono) leads that connect it to the amp. To connect the amp to the PC you need a twin Phono to 3.5mm mini jack lead normally. Connect this to the mic socket on your sound card. Most PC's will detect the connection and ask you to define it. Define it as "line in"
After that it's just a case of playimg each album through while recording it. Then de-click or not as required. Set track markers and burn to CD. It is worth taking time to get the recording levels right to avoid too much clipping etc. Just like doing tape in the old days.
If you are so inclined there are several sites that let you download pictures of the relevant Cd cover and even the Cd artwork to customise you effort even further.
I back all my "ripped vinyl" up to a Hdd as well.
Thanks Welshboy - most helpful
I'm also not a fan of EAC.. too many options.. and how should I know what's best.. so many guides on the web.. and no tagging? that just sucks!
Downloading dbpoweramp .....
Once the options have been set, there is nothing else to do except rip the tracks. I haven't found any issues myself....what tagging do you require that you're not getting?If I want to play about with the tags (which I don't very often) I tend to use the functionality provided by Foobar200.
