Vinyl + Audacity = MP3

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 139.188.130.221] on October 21, 2008 09:44 PM
Quite a few comments regarding pop removal, track separation and conversion to compressed formats (MP3, OGG, etc). Audacity does all these things. The tools menu is a good place to explore - there is stuff like bass boost, normalisation, rumble and pop removal that are invaluable when recording analogue sources.
As mentioned in one of the posts above the best way of splitting the recording is to add a label track, type the track name at the start point of each track (using CTRL-B), then use export multiple to feed out the whole recording as separate tracks. One glitch is that all the ID-tag information doesn't always roll forward across all the tracks, but these can be backfilled afterwards.
