Any Old School DIYers give me a hand?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to make a cable to go from my speaker inputs on my record player to the Mic jack on my computer. It's been a wile since I've custom made a cable, any suggestion or input? Or would it be easier to use a USB? Do not want to waste my money on a Vinyl/CD burner when I know it can be done other ways. If I posted in the wrong place sorry, first time on the board.

First welcome to the forum. Here is a page from RadioShack.com I do the same thing for my wife with tapes she transcribes. I use the 1/8" to 1/8" male plugs so I can go from earphone to mic.

Most likely your turntable does not have a built in pre amp.

About 10 years ago I wanted to connect my sound card to my house stereo.

Needed a 15 foot cable. Could only find a 10 foot one. Bought 2 10 footers and did a " twist n tape" splice to make the length I needed.

Later I used that same cable to go from tape out on stereo to line in on sound card to make cd copies of my old vinyl albums.

I have been recording records for a couple of years now using Windows Media Plus Analog Recorder. You do need a pre-amp and Radio Shack makes a good one for less than 50 bucks, although any stereo with an output can do the same thing. Check out some of tese old tunes from 78's and 33's I did a while back. The software takes out the pops and hiss as well!
