I have never tried to transfer cassette tracks to CD until now.
I have connected my tape deck (YAMAHA KX-393) line out using a phono cable with a phono to 3.5 mm stereo jack adapter into the microphone socket of my HP laptop.
Using Audacity, I can record a signal but it is very, very distorted. Recording volume signal keeps going way off the scale.
Nothing I do seems to bring the volume level down. The cassette is fine as I can listen to it via headphone socket on deck.
Like everyone else, I have recordings I want to keep.
Anyone any suggestions?
Look forward to any advice
