Vinyl is back in fashion in recent years, thanks to its unmistakable warm sound and the opportunity to relive the experience of listening to music in a more tangible way. However, it is not always possible to take your favorite records with you. Fortunately, you can record vinyl on PC, thus preserving the sound quality and convenience of the digital format. In this article, we will show you how to do it quickly and easily.


Before you start, it’s important to have the right equipment. You’ll need a turntable, an RCA cable, a preamp (if your turntable doesn’t include it), an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and a USB cable. Make sure you have everything you need and make sure your turntable is compatible with the vinyl size you want to record, such as classic 12-inch LPs or 7-inch EPs.


Once the equipment is ready, connect the turntable to the preamp using the RCA cable. If your turntable has an integrated preamp, you can skip that step. Next, connect the preamp to the ADC converter via another RCA cable. Finally, connect the ADC converter to your PC using the USB cable. Make sure that all connections are correct and well secured.


To record vinyl on PC, you will need an audio recording software. There are numerous free and paid programs available on the market, such as Audacity, Adobe Audition or goldwave. Download and install the software you prefer, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the installation is complete, open it and select the option to record audio from an external device, in this case, the ADC converter.


Now that everything is ready, place the vinyl on the turntable and lower the needle to the groove. In the recording software, start recording and let the vinyl play to the end. Once you have finished recording, you can use the software’s features to eliminate any background noise or clicks and to split the audio file into separate tracks. Finally, export the recording to a digital audio format, such as MP3 or WAV, and save the file on your PC.


Recording vinyl on PC is a simple and accessible process for everyone, allowing you to preserve the sound quality of vinyl and listen to your collection in digital format, wherever you are. By following these steps and paying attention to vinyl size, you can easily create digital copies of your favorite records and enjoy their inimitable sound on the go or on the go.

In addition, vinyl recording on PC will allow you to share your music with friends and family who don’t have a turntable, making the vinyl experience more accessible to everyone. Not only that, but you’ll also have the opportunity to create backup copies of your collection, thus protecting your precious discs from the wear of time.

Remember that the important thing is to choose the right equipment and use quality recording software, so as to ensure the best possible performance in your digital recording. Have fun reliving the thrill of vinyl on PC!
