Transfering audio from cassette to CD

By swkent ·
I have tapes that I need to transfer to CD. I have a brand new HP PAV with CD-R, Adaptec Easy CD creator and a sound card with audio inputs. How do I get the audio onto the CD? Thanks for any help you can give.

Cassette to CD

You need to link your cassette recorder to the input on the sound card with a suitable cable.
You then play the cassette, while using a program like recorder (inc with Windows) or Sound Forge to record the cassette onto your hard disk as a .wav file. You will need plenty of hard disk space!
Once you have a .wav file, you can burn it with EasyCD Creator.

The cable and the tape deck are important, otherwise you'll get crappy .wav's. Don't use a walkman, if you follow me. You'll probably want to run a hiss reduction filter on the sounds once you've got them on your pc. GoldWave and SoundForge are up to the task.
