Bit of house music on the way to work
Ironically I hadn't heard of him, yet he did a free concert only 2 mins from where I work in Jan. Looks like he's coming our way again so will definitely go next time.Loved that one, thanks.
...and Father Guido!!! LOL
A fellow Kiwi for Neal. ...I had Thomas Oliver on rotation this evening...AMAZING harmonic overtones from this Weissenborn!
This one is a bit long, but I recommend that you watch through to the end...one of my favorites of his.
What rip software do you use ? It's on my around to list to rip all my albums and 80s 12 inch collection.Diana Krall for me today. Vinyl rip to flac.
Cheers for the info.Just download Audacity, Audacity: Download . It's free and perfect for this. You'll even find some great tutorials on YouTube for cleaning up the ticks and pops in your vinyl rips.
I just do the clip/pop removal, and only the other steps if the Vinyl is in really bad condition...Check out:
Cleaning Vinyl Audio Recordings in Audacity (Surface Noise & Pops) - YouTube
Using a humidifier in the room with the turntable before you start your rips greatly reduces static electricity and the resulting clicks and pops.
I'm using the Numark TTXUSB turntable (but I am bypassing the USB and built-in phono preamp and using the Ifi Micro iPhono phono preamp, or the Arturia Audiofuse), only because I had about 50+ Home-Cut Records that my Grandmother, Great Aunt, and their friends "recorded" or cut at home and I needed something with a wide range of variable speed control. I also purchased a special cartridge, needles, and cleaning supplies just for this purpose from KAB Electro Acoustics http://www.kabusa.com
For modern LPs, I am using the Denon DL160 cartridge with the Ifi Micro iPhono phono preamp...

Just like car audio, this vinyl/turntable thing is a venture down the rabbit hole, but it's fun. Check out YouTube member "BSD2000" for some great Rips... https://www.youtube.com/user/BSD2000
In other news, I've been listening to Adam Ben Ezra...
Here's a couple of bands I haven't listen to for a while ?Two bands that had a huge influence on my early listening.
Bauhaus - Bela Lugosi's Dead
Killing Joke - Love Like Blood
