    I thought some of you would like this

    Taken from here, it's a year old but should still be relevant.

    -

    Might come in useful, I tend to pirate tracks if I have the vinyl because I can never get my rips sounding nice but will be giving this a go
     
    Triple M and JSDNB like this.

    Nice post. I will probably never do this as I keep both dj collections separate atm (digi/vinyl). But this is great for archiving purposes.

    I just wish we could start gettin access to free/reduced mp3s when we purchase the vinyl. :-/

    hmm good to know. but i'm also in the same boat as you, as I don't really buy from anywhere else other than chemical due to shipping costs (they're quite reasonable considering i'm more than a continent away. I've gotten stuff from redeye on sale tho.

    ive not done it myself yet, but can you not just record the track in a dvs software line traktor, then convert it to mp3 or is your method above much better?

    some sound advise in there.
    also extremely relevant to people recording dj mixes.

    Depends how anal you are really, the bit about removing pops and clicks for example
