Hi, maybe the record is worn and that's why the sound is low. By using third party audio editing software (i.e. cool edit [paid] or audacity [free]) you can improve quality and volume of digital sound.

How to transfer vinyl to cd-simply-I have manual but very confusing-simple step by step needed-thank you-Al B


The popular recording software known as Audacity is a good choice for getting all sorts of sounds saved in a digital format. The easy-to-use features of this program will help you to create complex musical compositions, or just record incoming audio streams. One of the basic things you can do with Audacity is to record sound from vinyl records. Many people still keep vinyls on hand, though the production of this medium has diminished. Here are the basic steps that will help you to use Audacity to record vinyl.

Steps

  1. Get your phonograph or record player. Assemble your collection of records and make sure that your record player is in good functioning condition.

  2. Use a cable to connect your record player to the computer with Audacity installed on it. In order to record from vinyl, you'll need to make sure you have accurately connected your record player as an incoming audio stream into the microphone jack of your computer.

    • Use hardware adapters to secure your cable connection. Many older record players utilize a 1/4-sized input jack. The modern laptop computer, as well as many desktop models, use a smaller, 1/8-sized input jack. You can buy simple adapters at your local electronics store to fix this problem.

    • Make sure that your cables and adapters support stereo.


  3. Open the Audacity program on your computer. You will see the signature Audacity screen, with controls at the top, and an empty space to accommodate created tracks.

  4. Start playing the record on your record player.

  5. Hit the red circle that represents the "record" button in Audacity.

  6. Observe the sound coming into Audacity. You should see the track being populated with sound, represented by a fluctuating line as the cursor moves along.

  7. Hit "Stop" to stop the recording.

  8. Stop the record player.

  9. Repeat this process with the entire track. Reset the record player, start playing and hit the Audacity "Record" button again, allowing the entire track to populate with the sound of the vinyl record.

  10. Save your project in your desired format. Audacity supports a number of file formats for the finished product. You can select one of these when you have recorded the entire track. Make every song its own track, or simply record the entire side of the record on one track.

Why would the output sound level on a MP3 vary so much?


MP3 songs are recorded at different levels. Many modern tunes have been deliberately recorded loud by the record companies for maximum effect.
If you are recording the songs yourself some recording software has a "normalize" feature. This increases or reduces the volume of the track to a certain level. Especially useful when you have tracks at different levels. By the way this is how they get CD tracks to play at the same levels. So you don't have to turn up the volume or turn it down every time a new track plays.

If the recording you made is not in a mp3 file format then the player cannot play that song/music.

Resulting mp3 files are HUGE


Are you certain that you're recording in MP3 format?That large file size seems much like .wav files than .mp3 thing.


But if that's really .mp3 file,you may need to adjust the bit rate&sampling rate.Typically, 12 kbps and 44.1 KHz would be a good starting point.


And about shrinking files you've already done,try file convert software(s) around the web(try Google it).Too many of them to recommend here.But I personally use Wavepad Sound Editor for record,edit and save files in various format.

Same just happened to me. I was using SONY CD-R audio 80 min recordable CDs. One burned 3 songs, the other 4 songs before giving me the "CD write failure" message. I tried another brand of CD-R, TDK CD-R, certified plus, and it worked first time. It played on my CD player, on the Ion, etc - works. Maybe the CD burner in the device is very picky as to the brand or quality of the CD-R media? Try a TDK or other to see if that will do it.
-Good luck! Bill

Blue Hat Toy company mp3 player cannot download new songs


If you are using a Mac, move to trash moves the mp3 files to the trash folder on the player. I could not "see" the trash folder on the player until I plugged it into a PC and looked at the MP3 Player in Windows Explorer. On the Mac the folder didn't even show when using ls in the terminal window. If you delete the Trashes folder it will free up memory on the MP3 Player
