How to Convert LP and Cassettes to CD or MP3

Spin It AgainTo transfer vinyl LP records to CD and MP3 or audio cassettes to CD and MP3, you will need to take a couple of steps. Using Acoustica Spin It Again, you won't believe how easy it is!

Here are just a few of the things Acoustica Spin It Again does right:

  • Visual and audio wizards guide you through the recording level adjustment, hardware hookup, recording and editing process.

  • Record LPs and tapes and put your music on CDs and MP3 players, including iPods.

  • Automatically removes old record clicks, pops and tape hiss.

  • Create audio CDs and/or convert recordings to MP3, OGG, WMA, and hi-fi WAV files.

  • Split up previously recorded MP3s, WAVs, WMAs or OGGs into multiple tracks or burn to CD.

  • Automatic track detection and silence removal algorithm splits your albums into tracks ready for your iPod, MP3 or CD player.

  • Burn tracks longer than one CD's worth. For example, if you wanted to record an 4-tape audio book, it would burn it over as many CDs as it needed.


  • A tape deck or record player with an "an audio out" (a line-out or headphone slot would do!).

  • An RCA to headphone cable (to connect your tape deck to your computer's sound card).

  • Acoustica Spin It Again software to extract the music from the record/tape and save it onto your computer and to burn your music to CD!


Step 1: Hookup Your Record/Cassette Player To Your Computer

One of the biggest stumbling blocks to recording your LPs and cassettes to CD is how to hook up your record player or cassette player to your computer's sound card. Luckily, our software has a guide that helps you make the connection.

Run the software and click "Hookup Wizard". It will guide you through a series of questions and show you photos and images to help you hook up your record player/cassette player to your computer.

Step 2: Get A Good Recording Level

The first time you run the software, it will ask you if you want to run the "Recording Level Wizard". Click "Yes" or click "Level Wizard"

Once the wizard starts, click the "Start" button and follow the instructions. (It will have you play the loudest part of the record.)

Step 3: Click "Record"

Click "Record" and start playing your record. Once it is done, flip over the record and play side two. When it's finished, click "Next" or "Stop".

Step 4: Preview And Edit Your Recording

The software automatically splits your recording up into tracks. If there were any erroneous tracks created or if there was extra silence, you can edit it by clicking "Split" and/or by dragging the track markers.

Once you are satisfied, click "Next"

Step 5: Tag / Name Your Recording

Enter in the artist, album, genre and track names. This will affect how the individual MP3s are named and tagged.

Click "Next" when you are done.

Step 6a: Click "Burn CD"

Click the "Burn CD" button, click "Next" to accept the default settings and click "Next" again.

Insert a blank CD and wait for it to finish! Enjoy your new CD in your car or home stereo!

Or if you want to put your audio onto your MP3 player, select the audio format you want to use.

Step 6b: Pick A Destination & Format

If you want to put it on an MP3 player, make sure it's plugged in and then click "Choose" and select it from the list.  Otherwise, choose a folder on your computer.  You can also choose a format (MP3, OGG, WAV or WMA) and click "Details" to change the bit rate and other advanced settings.

Don't forget to print a CD label with the optional Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker. The track list will be automatically imported from step 4 and 5!
