    Hi all,

    Some time ago in Windows Secrets, or maybe even Langa List there was an article about LP album to CD conversion. One or more of the recorder utilities described was able to interrogate the Internet when adding album, artist, song names and progressively fill in the data automatically.

    Could someone please direct me to this article or similar or appropriate (if possible free) software.

    Many Thanks
    Ken

    A google search reveals many links on the how to do this. Unfortunately, most of the links I looked at require some sort of S/W to split the created wav fil into seperate songs and most of this S/W is not free. Some however have trial apps available.

    I use Audacity for capturing LP and cassette recordings to digital format. Audacity is free and is very easy to use. You can clean up hiss and static, enhance bass, etc. You can easily split the songs up into individual files. As far as tagging, software depends on an existing tag to give a hint as to what the song/album is to do auto tagging. Usually naming the file with the song name is all you need. So just save the .wav files with the song name. Audacity lets you create tags to show where a new song starts. You can name the tag and then have it automatically create all the files at once. My preference is not use Audacity to create .mp3 files. Media Monkey is a more powerful tool for doing this.

    EAC and LAME are free and is still among the top dogs. It has the capacity to "fill in"
    artist and album title information.
