Hey guys! I'm hoping maybe some of you can give me a hand with a problem I'm having. I've been tasked with burning audio CDs from a bunch of audiotapes from a conference. I record from a tape player (boombox, walkman) into the line ins of my 12" Powerbook (1 GHz, 512 MB, 10.2.8). I'm having a problem: the audio I record has pops and strange electronic-sounding glitches, they sound almost like dropouts from a cell phone conversation. Here's a sample: http://www.notjustjay.com/Recording.mp3 (It's a preacher reading some scripture.. listen particularly to the first 10-15 seconds and the last 10 seconds for the biggest glitches) It's not my audio program, because I've used a bunch: Audio In, Audio Recorder, Spark ME, all with the same results. It's not my cassette, because it sounds fine when I listen to it myself. And, when I re-record the same section of the tape, glitches happen in different spots! It's not my tape player, because I've tried it with several and they all do the same thing. It's not the line in, because I can record from my iPod with no troubles at all. I can also record using the built-in mic just fine. FINALLY, (and this one is what hurts the most!) -- if I do the same thing with my Windows laptop, I get a perfect recording with NO glitches. That is what I've been using to convert the first few tapes... but I want this to work on my Mac! Weird?! Any ideas?
