Recommended Recording Process


  1. Gramofile to record from the sound card through line in from the source (e.g., LP record)
  2. Gramofile to identify track beginnings and endings. These are saved to a .tracks file automatically.
  3. Audacity to confirm and fine tune the track splits stored in the .tracks file.
  4. Gramofile to perform the split into tracks and to filter out pops using the Conditional Median Filter II. The tracks are saved into separate files numbered 01, 02, etc.
  5. Xmms to check the beginning and ending of each track to confirm the splits were fine.
  6. Audacity to edit out any remaining spikes in each track, being sure to export back to WAV if any changes are made.
  7. The tracks are now ready to burn to CD. Create a disk.toc:

      CD_DA
      TRACK AUDIO
      FILE "side1001.wav" 0
      TRACK AUDIO
      FILE "side1002.wav" 0
      ... 
      TRACK AUDIO
      FILE "side2005.wav" 0
    

    Then

      $ cdrdao write disk.toc
