    Finally returning to an old project, ripping LPs. Can anybody offer practical insight on time-saving software options or workflows?

    I've done it before using Audacity and other nonspecialized software but am looking for ways to make the process go faster, reduce setup and post-processing time.

    I want things to sound good but I am not in audiophile mode. Basic noise and pop/click reduction would be great if it does not add too much time/labor to the process. My final listening files will be in AAC -- for when I'm away from the turntable.

    The reviews of PureVinyl are intriguing but I'm not clear if it is a time saver. Izotope looks fab but is probably much, much more than I need. VinylStudio? Others?

    Now back to testing an ancient Edirol UA-1ex USB interface with my old MBA... (Recommend me a good-enough USB adapter in case it is DOA.)

    Garageband can do that for free but you have to manually cut the tracks apart.... based on the waveform.

    Highly recommend getting a NuWave phono converter. It is a high quality phono stage that can do MM or MC cartridge and has different loading settings. Converts to either 24/192 or single or double DSD currently on sale for half off at $999
