Converting cassette tape to CD.

Unread postby Bill the Butcher » Thu Aug 20, 2009 10:42 pm

Does anybody know how I can do this easily and for free? Whether it be going to some place that does it or DIY.

Thanks.

Thanks for the GIF, bro. I hope that it actually works for you. Maybe put up a YouTube video that just has the audio from a track on one of those converted cassettes. I'd love to hear how it sounds.

I think you can buy a one piece unit that does this for fairly cheap instead of doing it through a PC and a program.

I would think doing it through a PC would take a long time depending on the size of your cassette collection.

Audacity is a kickass program. It takes a little fiddeling (in Windows) to get it to work though. I often record music from Last.fm or Grooveshark and save it to mp3 files.

It's like the 2010 version of holding a tape recorder up to the radio.
