Nothing is better than flipping tapes.  That required skill lol.

You could do it with one hand if I remember correctly!!!!!   You must have practiced in your sleep LOLSteveboy

Quick on the draw for sure.

I actually prefer the sound from the analogue recordings.

Could you tell me what are the essential steps (with audacity ?) in order to then broadcast here this record ?

It's a long time since I did any of this but, from memory, the steps I've taken with either Audacity or Audition is roughly:
  • Copy the wav onto the PC.
  • Make a copy of the wav and open it in the audio editor.
  • Find the start of the set and delete everything before.
  • Find the end of the set and delete everything after.
  • Apply a normalize filter.
  • Save the wav file.
  • If you want to distribute the recording, export it as a flac file.If you want to mark tracks, open the wav in an application like Goldwave to place the track markers.There may be some other things to think about too that I've forgotten to mention. There is lots of useful information in the Tapers Section forum: <http://taperssection.com>

  • Absolutely do *not* use any form of normalize - all you are doing is adding noise for no gain at all plus an additional layer of quantization that should be avoided.
    If the recording is too quiet, bring the level up manually (do not peak limit either - nothing worse than a recording where some goon has taken all the headroom out with bloody limiters and this happens commercially too) but please, please do not normalize.

    Doesn't it depend on the waveform? "Never normalise" seems a bit extreme. "Never say never", as they say :P

    For stealth I recommend the Roland R-07 which is the size of a deck of cards...internal mics are just ok but hooked up to church audio mics and pre amp the results are great
