good looking on out on those tips. i went to moog on the way home. Serious had the same advice - one thing he failed to mention was the rubber mat tip..thanks, makes total sense.dj_soo said:I'm in the process of converting all my vinyl to digital for Serato use and my mistakes will be your advantage:
#1 - unless you have a high-end mixer like a Rane or an Allan & Heath, forgo your mixer and purchase a dedicated pre-amp for your turntable
#2 - use one of those old rubber mats to record - don't use a dj slipmat
#3 - buy a dedicated audiophile needle with a good frequency response - don't use a DJ needle
#4 - use a good, dedicated soundcard
#5 - Record in 24 or 32 bit if possible - dither down to 16 bit if it's intended for Serato use or CDs
I have to re-record a bunch of my best tracks as I used a bunch of methods that didn't provide optimal quality.
Anyone used the Grado Prestige Gold & Silver and/or The Grado DJ 200?.
Know where I can get 'em in Toronto?
Any other suggestions for needles used to rip old vinyl for use w/ digital djing?
