USB Vinyl Ripping Information:
To transfer vinyl to your PC, you will need to install a digital audio editor. Such software is widely available as a free download (such as Audacity), from the internet. This is a simple interface that allows monitoring of volume and balance whilst transferring your audio to your PC hard drive.
Audio editing software includes a level meter that indicates the output level achieved when playing a piece of vinyl. You should adjust the output as necessary via the ‘Level’ control located on the front panel. Always take special note of record levels to ensure optimum recording quality.
