... needed for an older iMac. Until recently I've had good results using a Stanton STR8-80 turntable, which has a digital out jack, into the USB port of a Windows PC, using an Edirol UA-1D as an interface. I was using GoldWave software as my audio editor. I'm currently switching to an older iMac, from 2000, running OSX (OS9 is also loaded) and I have a few of questions I hope you folks might answer:
1. The UA-1D does not have driver support for OSX and some kind of audio glitch exists on systems that have both OS9 & OSX installed, preventing me from getting sound in the Classic mode. Any suggestions on connecting this audio interface? Would it make sense to dump OSX and just use the OS that was originally with the computer?
2. I'd appreciate any audio editing software suggestions to help with cleaning up my old vinyl, and doing fade ins and outs. What basic programs would you folks suggest?
3. I've only done this on my PC; are there any issues of which I need to be aware so I can introduce the converted files to iTunes and then to my iPod?
Sincere thanks for any help you might offer.
