Cassette to digital help

I have 1000+ GD show tapes with about 150 masters of either soundboard>D5 or various studio quality mics to D5 or Nak 550. I'm planning a once-in-a-lifetime transfer of these cassette tapes to digital and would like to discuss with an experienced individual issues such as analog playback, A/D hardware/conversion rates, and software.

Thanks,
John

bt torrent downloads

Lately, I've had significant delays in successfully completing downloads from bt.etree.org. Is there a torrent tool to ease the process? I routinely clear space on my hard drive to enable storage, but the download speed is intolerably S L O W

Download file, save, convert, then record

Depending on which website you download from and what format you want to end up with, you'll need to have a computer hard drive with lotsa memory, good organizational skills to store, identify and locate the downloaded files, and a program to create the sound you want to hear. Traders download shn and flac files, converting them (thru expansion) into .cda or .wav files normally associated with conventional cd's. mp3 players utilize compressed files (.mp3). Tunes we trade in the Vineyard should never come from an mp3 file, due to the higher potential for corrupt or defective sound bytes. Do you already have software such as EZ CD Creator or Nero? I'm sure there are plenty of software choices out there. In order to expand the shn or flac files, visit www.phillesh.net, which has a good reference page on it's Download page, for downloading, converting and recording cd's. Also check www.eTree.org

So many roads to ease my soul...Ease my soul!!

I don't think it's possible to download direct to CD-R

I think you have to download to your hard drive and then burn the CD.

But I'm going to defer to the more knowledgeable on that one.

HOW DO I DOWNLOAD SHOWS???

All I want to do is download a show directly to CD-R. If I need to convert any files or anything, please tell me what I need to download and how to convert them.

Thanks.

downloading tapers

Downloading audio cuts from the Taper's Section was eliminated some time back. They are only available for streaming now. Maybe they should re-name it the "Listener's Section"...

Tapers Section in mono?

Hi, I'm getting only a mono single when streamng the tapers section. Are these no longer in stereo? The GD Radio is coming through in nice sounding stereo. Is there something I need to change on my setup to make the tapers section streams stereo?

Thanks!

Ah Haaa!

After reading through the New Vines topic I now understand the whole structure a lot better. I was wondering why Marye showed up so often in so many places. Many thanks to her and you and everyone who worked so hard on this.
I'll put something nice together and seed it soon.
