Hiya Derek,

Haven't "spoken" to you in ages. Hope it's all going OK for you?
Thanks for the Heads-Up in Announcements about the November release - I've had a lot of ISP and hosting hassles this year and so email notifications from all over the place have gone missing.
Good luck with the forum.

Derek, I am so excited with this new forum so very thankful that it was set up.

Being a new user/owner of Wave Corrector (Nov 2004), I am pleased with what it can do. Especially that I can record my old 78's on my 33/45 speed turntable and it will all be converted to the correct speed. Works great! The options are just incredible. There is a lot I don’t understand yet but that will come in time and experience of using this product. I had been using Audacity but the cleaning of noise was not as efficient and easy as Wave Corrector. lori

Hello Derek and all others:
I also am rather new at using Wave Corrector, but am most pleased thus far. I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions as time goes on, but at this point I am still trying out and learning all the features of the program.

So far I've used the hiss filter and that has been great. I need to get the proper connectors to hook my turntable up to the computer to do some vinyl/CD conversions. Since I'm still rather guessing at proper hook-ups any and all advise would be most welcome.

Hi Carolyn. Most turntables use magnetic cartridges which require some degree of signal boost (pre-amp) to raise the signal level to that which is useable by the line inputs on your computer. If you are hooking up to a "phonograph" with volume controls built in you probably have the necessary output signal.

Hello Carolyn!

What Stan (Citguy) stated is absolutely correct. One thing I discovered on my antiquated home system is that the less equipment you have between the turntable and the computer, the better.
Originally I had an old SAW pop and click remover, a small analog box that did a...well, actually a poor job of doing what Wave Corrector does. The principle is the same but it is an early analog device. The point here is, I would constantly be battling this annoying hum during the album processing. Turns out I had an impedence mismatch (a grounding issue between the various components in my audio chain from turntable through Amp and on to computer). Tracing my wires back to the stereo, I discovered it was the SAE device. Once elminated, everything was fine. After that I had to strongly resist the urge to rerecord and reprocess everything I've done to that point.

Best wishes and enjoy!

Thanks Derek, I have had Wave Corrector for awhile, today I finally plugged in my turntable and pre-amp. I have the Audigy 2ZS sound card, but never used it to record an external source.

When recording it must do so at half speed because play back is double time.
I'm making progress, severely software challenged, but at least I got a wav file to my hard drive. I'll keep at it, or hire somebody to come to my house!
