    Default Digitizing vinyl

    Whats the best way to do this.


    From record out on my mixer?

    From pre out off my amp ?

    From tape out on amp ?



    Any opinions would be great as i'm going to take the plunge and start doing my 20 odd years of house music(arrrg)

    Well, the fewer conversions the better.

    and it might be a good idea to use a fresh stylus, or if you're feeling flush an archiving on (I use an Ortofon Arkiv for doing this with old hip-hop records ...

    No mixer here mate, deck to amp and then to computer.

    I ditched my vinyl turntables ages ago. No amp either. Anyone tried those straight up USB Turntables? Totally stupid & crap? I only saved about 30 records but it would be nice to hear them again.

    I tried last night all ways with same tune but really could not hear a noticeable difference.
    I recorded straight to to uncompressed wave just to make sure.
