Do those cassettes fit in your yepp-55?

I have done this in the past using a boombox connected to my soundcard through the headphone jack. You then need software to record the sound coming in. I have used goldwave and roxio in the past. Sorry can't be more specific, but I did this a few years ago.

This would be cool (http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/drives/6908/) for converting audio cassettes to mp3s.

:lol: That is awesome. Now if it would not only let you rip/record audio, but would also act like an old school data tape drive and let you put files and such on it, then I'd buy one right now.


Back on topic, the only good way is to use an audio editing program to record the entire tape from the line input. Then remove the tape hiss using noise filters in the editing program and such. Cut it apart into the various songs if you want to, and save it off as WAV files. Then encode to MP3 using LAME (www.rarewares.org).

It's not really a process you can do in bulk.

I may have to get that tape deck. It's a little pricey though.

I've been planning to convert my records to mp3, but have been too lazy to move my turntable near my pc and moving my pc near my turntable was a pain in the ass as well.

After reading most of the threads, I am using a regular tape deck and RCA (red and yellow) to single pin cable to my computer. am using Audacity software and LAME to encode to mp3.
Just one problem, the recording is in mono instead of stereo.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

And also what softwares would remove the hissing noise? Do all of them work. Thanks.,
