Converting your LPs, cassettes or tapes to CDs is a great way of storing and playing your favourite music. You can now listen to your LPs in the car, on the computer etc. - anywhere you have a CD player - and the sound quality does not deteriorate like it does with vinyl or tape.
If you convert the tracks to MP3 you can store the equivalent of a dozen LPs onto a single CD to play on an MP3-compatible CD player. With a software MP3 player like WinAmp, or a portable MP3 player like the Apple iPod, you can play any mix of tracks you like.
Either way, you can play your music as often as you like, without damaging the originals.
If you have already tried to do this you'll have discovered how fiddly and time-consuming it is, recording each track as a WAV file to record to CD or converting it to an MP3 file.
LP Ripper is a Windows program that makes the task much easier and quicker. Just record each side of your LP as a single WAV file on your computer using a program like LP Recorder. LP Ripper automatically splits the file into a separate WAV file for each track. You can then make a CD using LP Burner or your usual CD burning software. Alternatively, LP Ripper can use a command-line MP3 Encoder to produce an MP3 file for each track ready to be used by iTunes
