Hi All,

I have read various other threads on this topic but they leave me a bit unsure so I was hoping to create a definite answer for me (and others!!)

I have a large collection of house records I want to digitize and need advice on the best way to do it.

1) I have a turntable, mixer and amp. How can I connect these up to my MacBook? Will I need a preamp or does the mixer do this

2) What is the best software to use to capture the sound? I have recorded some records previously using a Cowen iAudio. This captured the sound fine but levels and quality are all over the place. Am I better getting some software just to clean up this sound. Or is it better to start again and clean up the sound as I go

Ideally, when I finish, I want all the recordings to be of the same sound level and quality.

Hope some of you can help me with this as it's a project I've been trying to get done for ages.
QUOTE Thanks
