Just bought Audio-Technica PL120 and have it looked up to computer via Line-in. Above is the recording my son asked for off the old 1977 LP soundtrack for Star Wars. The sound is hollow, warbbeling, tinny, . . . not sure exactly how to describe it. Sound card is Realtek High Definition Audio. Have updated driver.
What can I do in Audacity to correct this? If you need more info. in order to answer this, please let me know.
Have you turnedon the pre-Amp that is built in to your Audio-Technica PL120?
From reading this review: http://www.crutchfieldadvisor.com/S-tKLZ0dNHeDO/reviews/20040224/turntable_review.html - it seems that you have the option to have the preamp on or off, With it off you would need to connect to the phono input of an amp/receiver - with it turned on you can connect to the line-in of an amp - or the line-in on a PC.
Basically you need the pre-amp to apply the necessary RIAA equalization - when records are recorded/mastered the engineers de-emphasize the bass (so that the stylus/cartridge does not over-travel and jump on heavy bass and sudden sounds) - so on replay this equalization must be re-applied.
Thanks, WC, for the reply.
Yes, I turned on the preamp, but may try playing with the bass to see if that makes a difference. Any other suggestions are appreciated.
Thank you, Sir. I’ll look into both! I’ll keep ya posted.
All the best.
