EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter
Backing up a collection of vinyl discs or audio cassettes is not an easy task because it not only requires a dedicated hardware unit, but also some specialized software to get the job done swiftly. For those interested in such endeavors, there is a mixed solution that includes both required tools, more precisely a certain program that is designed to work only with a particular type of device.
Going by the name of EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter, the utility is especially created to work alongside a connected ION USB Recording device. Through a simple interface, this app makes it possible to capture the audio stream from the turntable or cassette player.
The whole operation takes place by following the steps of a wizard that begins with the plugging in of the audio device and its linking with the computer. The following stage is finding the beginning of the track to be recorded and starting the actual audio capture.
EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter contains some controls and during the second step, users can adjust the audio gain in order to avoid ending up with unwanted peaks of loudness or with a sound barely audible.
A neat feature of this tool is the ability to split the recordings into separate tracks, while the audio capture is running a button labeled 'New Track' will become accessible. By pressing it, a fresh WAV file will be recorded.
When it comes to personalizing the songs before saving them to disk, EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter gives users the possibility to choose the output location, track number, artist, album and title fro the dedicated area.
All things considered, this software solution can prove a really good choice for all those looking for a method of transferring music from one support onto another. Some extra features like those related to the quality of the output, would be welcomed and would certainly increase the value of this utility.
