Lp's to CD's in Logic?

Hey Guy's,
I am new here, this is my first post. I am at a music school in Southern California, and I just bought logic to do some recording stuff with around the school and set up a little studio for the music majors. I was wondering if I could somehow transfer the LP's in my library to my Powerbook using logic. I am pretty sure that you can do it in peak, so I wonderd if you can use logic to do it.

Thanks in advance,

When you say LP's, I'm assuming you mean vinyl rather than CD's.

If you haven't already done so, you may wish to purchase an external audio/midi interface. There are lots of very cost effective units available with USB and/or Firewire connection. If you have Logic software I'm assuming you've probably already got a decent audio/midi capture device.

Are you intending to simply connect the RCA output of a turntable to the line level input of your audio capture device? If so, you will need to have an RIAA preamp for the signal. Companies like ART produce USB connectable RIAA preamps that allow you to run straight into the computer, as well as other units with RCA output for connecting to audio capture devices. There are also turntables with USB connectability.

If you're using the line level output of an audio preamp to which your turntable is already connected, then you may not need the external RIAA preamp.

As far as whether Logic will record that audio, shouldn't be a problem.
QUOTE Thanks
