Re: Looking to Learn how to digitize Vinyls and Cassette Tapes...LOTS of questions! Reply #25 – 2020-07-16 22:57:12 So I talked to my co-worker yesterday (I believe, from what he was telling me, that he has worked with audio professionally for over a decade.) and he suggested I get a preamp instead and control the gain during recording from the preamp, rather than amplify the audio after recording (He told me audio will distort if you do that). My turntable is the LP120X, which allows you to change the preamp from the built in one. After doing a bit of research, I decided to buy this one...https://www.whathifi.com/us/rega/fono-mini-a2d/reviewSo I'll be controlling the volume level from the unit and outputting via USB instead, recording until I can get the highest peaks to -1 dB (Although ApesBrain mentioned not going above -6 dB, any reason why?), then doing all the other basic remastering I mentioned earlier to fix any artifacts in the audio.Thanks for all the help guys!
