Hi, I have no idea if I’m ripping vinyl correctly and would like some guidance on how to create great quality rips.
I’m using a macbook OS X v. 10.9.4 laptop, two technic 1210’s and a DJM 800 mixer. I also have traktor audio 6 which runs from the record port of the DJM 800 to the laptop with a USB cable.
so I make sure that the USB cable is plugged in before opening audacity (seems to work better that way). my audacity preferences are as follows…
-96000 sample rate
-24 bit rate
I also make sure the traktor audio 6 box is selected and that it also says stereo (2 channel)
after ive recorded the rip I will usually cut the unwanted audio from the beginning and end and then add a amplify effect and maybe a normalise if needed? is this correct? is there any way in which I can improve this process? thanks.
