All I do is put the vinyl tracks onto minidisc. Plug the minidisc into my PC and copy them to the desktop using "Total Recorder". I think the program cost 12 Canadian Dollars and it will save the tracks in many formats including MP3. You can edit them too. There are plenty of other things you can do with it, but I`ll leave it up to you to find out what! I am sure there are other programs available but I`ve had loads of fun with this and its ease of use is perfect for technomorons like me!


I use the iMic with Audacity and then use Depopper to clean up any messes. Easy!


Thanks for the iMic link! I've been using a console linux app called gramofile (usually in conjunction with Audacity), but as my laptop has no line-in the sound could never be any better than "pretty crappy". Though Griffin doesn't mention it, a quick search shows a number of linux users happily using the iMic.


of course, imic works great with the mac. YOu can use the included software (removes pops & clicks) or if you want more manipulation - you can use SOUND STUDIO (included free with Macs from 2+ years ago), GarageBand or even iMovie (both free with every Mac) to record AIFF (no compression) and then use iTunes to convert to Mp3.

You get much better sound by running your phono to a receiver then to the iMic (1/8" plug). Then just press record and you're done.


I used to use the iMic, but it ends up not having the audio output and input that I need. On OSX it would, at times, not all times, just sound bad. Maybe the problem is Core Audio on the Mac: who would know from Griffin's support? So I loved it on OS9, but on X, no way. I sold the iMic on eBay. Comparable, like the iMic, but sounding sooooooo much better--but also needing drivers--is m-audio's transit. I love it. Got it at around $75.00 on eBay, but it ends up around 90.00 elsewhere. It is super-fantastic. It even has optical output, not that I would ever use it. Point being: M-Audio has cheaper alternatives to the mbox, and the sound is swell.
