Recommended Recording Process
- Gramofile to record from the sound card
through line in from the source (e.g., LP record)
- Gramofile to identify track beginnings and
endings. These are saved to a .tracks file automatically.
- Audacity to confirm and fine tune the track
splits stored in the .tracks file.
- 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.
- Xmms to check the beginning and ending of each
track to confirm the splits were fine.
- Audacity to edit out any remaining spikes in
each track, being sure to export back to WAV if any changes are
- The tracks are now ready to burn to CD. Create a disk.toc:
FILE "side1001.wav" 0
FILE "side1002.wav" 0
FILE "side2005.wav" 0
