    Default Stupid Question About Recording Audio To Computer

    I want to put my old band tapes onto CD, I'd lilke to run it through a good audio program (Acid) to clean them up and enhance and edit them.

    So how do I do this?

    Do I plug my tuner direct into the compter sound card? Or do I need an interface?

    Somebody please walk me through this, use small words because evidently I be an idiot

    Thanks in advance.

    To be more precise, you need what is commonly referred to as a Y cable, that is a cable with two rca connectors on one end (one left-usually white, one right-usually red) and a 1/8" jack on the other end (the same type of jack you'd find on a pair of headphones). You simply plug the rca end into the line out on your tape deck and the 1/8" end into the line in on your sound card. You can find this cable for $5 or $6 at your local Radio Shack. Hope this helps.

    Right on, I didn't think it was going to be that hard.
