Transfer vinyl to CD

With a good sound-recording and sound-editing program you can take those old scratchy LPs and 78s and record them through your sound card and then burn the music to an audio CD or store it as an MP3 file. You can even filter out all those clicks and pops. On today's episode of "Call for Help" we walk you through the steps of preserving your old LPs.

Many old 78s and LPs are irreplaceable, so it pays to preserve them in a digital format. If you have ever recorded a cassette or reel-to-reel tape, you should be comfortable with this process and delighted with the ability to improve the quality of the audio.

The following process also works for recording audio from other external sources, such as cassette tapes and microphones.

Before you start, download a program such as Cool Edit 2000 for the PC or Peak for the Mac. Demo versions of both programs can be downloaded for free.

It pays to experiment with a short clip before you record and clean up an entire album. Find out which settings work best for different types of recordings and write these settings down for future reference.

"Call for Help" premieres Monday through Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern. Full schedule >
