    LP to MP3
    I'm looking for the best way to convert my LP vinyl albums to MP3 through my iMac. Any suggestions on what works best? Thanks.

    To be short I do LP->MP3 like this:
    1. I hook up my gear: Turntables to mixer, mixer to soundcard.
    2. Fire up CoolEdit and click record.
    3. Fire up turntable and let it play to the end
    4. After recording, let a noize remove plugin cleanup the crackling sounds.
    5. Mark track starts and end in the file and then CoolEdit automaticly saves them to serperate MP3's.....

    Now I have the lp in the form of an mp3 file (it is an opera), do folks have a recommendation as to how to divide it into songs and use iTunes to record it an an audio cd?

    21" iMac * 2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7 * 16GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 * 1TB HD *AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    I would use Audacity to separate the tracks. It's free.

    The only problem with Audacity is that it doesn't save as MP3, it needs LAME.
    Audio Hijack Pro is better.

    Just found this website. I'm looking to do the same thing and am very interested in your help. As yet, I can't find the previous posts either. Thanks.
