I’d like to turn some of my LPs into CDs on my Dell Dimension XP. I tried 2, using a brand-new quality turntable and Free Sound Recorder, but the results were very unsatisfactory.
I suspect this may be due to a low-quality built-in sound chip on this machine, so I’m thinking of buying a sound card. But I noticed that most of them seem to sample at 48 KHz, which strikes me as way too low to deliver quality sound on an LP. I have the impression that for really good quality sound, you need to sample ata rate somewhere in excess of 100 KHz.
Can anyone speak knowledgeably about the sampling rate, and/or about Free Sound Recorder?
Can anyone tell me if they’ve had good results converting LPs to CDs, and if so, what software and hardware did you use?
