What sort of audio recording software are we running these days?? looking to record some old LP's over speaker AUX (so not one of those pricy USB units)

Probably be encoding to mp3 and FLAC

Suggestions?

I use Audacity off a turntable connected to my sound card.

You will probably want to get LAME to go with it if you want to output MP3s.

There are dozens of small file size recorders - e.g. MP3myMP3, Free Hi-Q Recorder, SoundCopy 1.1, Tinynice MP3, Freecorder, Free MP3 Sound Recorder, etc. After reviewing/testing many of them (In my blog below), I found not much difference, though some offer additional features, e.g. stream recording, editors, filters, equalizers, converters, etc.

Audacity stands out as the most popular free one, for most general music/audio/recording editing needs. There are many online reviews and tutorials. Though may seem basic compared to the paid Adobe Audition (formerly Cool Edit Pro) and others.

I think ill stick with audacity for now (unless something really spectacular appears) I only need it now and then when a record stars wearing thin and when I get new ones.


Thanks any way!!!
