    I keep putting it off, I've got about 1000 to potentially record, its going to take aaaages though.

    Whats your method? Deck->mixer->PC or one of those usb turntables? I was considering trying to record at 174bpm to keep some sort of standard

    I've thought about it just because I want the tunes I got on vinyl on my phone/mp3/whatever but the thought of doing it sounds hideous and my collection isn't even that big. I've heard theres meant to be some programme that can convert it and also place tags on it so it's got artists names etc...automatically, still long though.

    Yeh... literally Vinyl>Mixer>soundcard>laptop.... with a clean up plug in to take off a little of the static.

    FUKIN LONG! My entire collection would cover every spare bit of room on my floor stood up... so have a ton of records in my parents basement.... Where I wasnt too bothered about vinyl when i moved... i didnt sort the good ones from the bad and just literally put what ever i could in the basement.... so decided the best way is going to be to literally convert every one....


    the longest part of it all... is typing the fukin name!!



    Although... i have come up with a cunning plan.... ive got vestax with +50%.... so recorded the tune at +50.... and then post processed it -50%. Saves a little bit of time... and the end result is just a tiny bit different from if you recorded at 0% in the first place. In fact it turns out to be a little bit faster for some reason... which is all good with dnb really...

    I think I would rather just get all the ones you can't get on mp3 and re purchase the ones you can't
