Hi. I have a bunch of LP's and tapes that I want to move to digital format. Does anyone on this forum have a suggestion for the best hardware and software for this? I looked at the TEAC GF450K7 on Amazon, but I don't know if I want to put that much into what may be a one time project.

Thanks ahead.

Questions for you..

1) What equipment do you have now? Do you own a turn table or a tape player? What about a receiver or preamp that these connect to?

2) how much do you care about audio quality?

3) How many do you have

4) budget?

OK I'll guess at some answers, you must have a turn table and tpe player if you have LPS and tapes and you must have something you connect these to, ike a reciever. If so then all you need is a decent audio interface. The audio built into your Mac might be good enough, depending on which Mac you have. Soit could be that all you need is come cables. You might need a USB audio interface.

You are going to have to describe your gear in good detail (listing connectors types) before anyone can help you
