Digitizing Your Artifacts
Records & Tapes to CDs and MP3s
OLLI at WVU Class
This course will provide a brief introduction to digitizing
audio signals from records and tapes with a PC and saving the
results as audio CDs and MP3 files. We will use free Audacity
software, which is commonly the package provided with inexpensive
hardware. Students may later use OLLI's hardware and computers to
save modest amounts of material, and will learn something about
selecting hardware for personal purchase.
This class is a quick overview of how to begin creating digital
audio files from analog sources such as records and tapes.
The primary software we will use is Audacity, a
free software product. It can be downloaded from several websites.
