Right I've just finished recordingsome old reggae records on mah pc.. Cant say they sound bad or nuthin, but they sound like they could be a bit better...hmmmm...im aware that there some programs for vinyl restoring like "Clean " (not sure which company makes it..), but i mean before that , before even wiring up the audio to your pc, what else can be done to ensure better quality? Any cleaning tips? at the mo all i do is swipe them on me t-shirt.... The way i do it is from my mixers rec. out, to my cards RCA ins, and record it on SoundForge...Would it be better to connect the turntable straight into the card? The card itself has a mic/instrument pre amp so if i can find something to ground the deck it should be ok....innit? wot bout if i use the mixers ground, but still put the deck to the PC **help inside** come on folks.me needs to burn a mix or too, havent posted one here yet... you need to feel mah rath!
