Converting Audio Cassettes to CD is easy

My father and me used to do this conversion work, since 2 years.We converted many cassettes into few CD.Recently, i was surprised to know that this was an article in LFY !All you need for doing this is just a cassetter player, it could be a walkman too, then a chord to connect your pc’s audio in and the player’s audio out & audacity

Configure audacity so that it listens & records the audio in or line in port of the pc.Now start playing the cassette.Once recorded you can export the captured signal to any audio format.

we can save audio content in cassettes from corruption !

  2. Quality-Space tradeoff is upto you !
    And you can also save them into open formats like ogg.
    Audacity supports many formats.

  3. Hmm cool about the formats. But it should be used for the thing which cant be obtained like our voice or our family voice. When it comes to song we shall go for a download πŸ™‚

  4. Downloading is ok if people dont infringe into others copyright πŸ™‚
    Though we do infringe on unauthorised copying, until we publicly broadcast or distribute, we dont harm anything to the creative work.
    We convert self development audio tapes, which are not available online πŸ˜‰
