How to Convert Your Vinyl Collection to Digital Format

  1. Prepare to convert by cleaning your records thoroughly.
  2. Purchase a Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable or you can use a pre-amp.
  3. Link the proper recording devices. (If you are using a “USB Turntable, just connect the two. If you are using “Line Output Turntables”, connect the audio interface to the computer and the turntable.  If you are using “Phono Output Turntable”, connect the turntable using a Stereo Receiver (input Phono, output Tape) or a Phono Preamp.)
  4. Download and Open a compatible audio-recording software like Audacity.
  5. Start recording by playing the vinyl. (remember to replace your turntable stylus for better playback quality if it’s been a while )
  6. Use the recording software & your DJ Super Powers to separate the tracks.
  7. Export your individual tracks using a lossless audio file format such as FLAC, ALAC, WAV, or AIF.
