    If you don't mind me asking, how are you doing your transfers?

      Hardware - USB Turntable, Teac Dual Cassette, MacBook Pro

      Interface - DigitNow USB Audio Capture from Turntable To MacBook Pro or Teac for cassettes using USB to USB C adapter

      Software - Amadeus Pro - I create an Amadeus file with markers for song titles with appropriate length silent space bertween each title marker. Do this for both sides. Swift Publisher for the CD Labels.

      To get ready to start the recording I select the entire Amadeus Side empty space for the side I will be recording then......

      Start Software recording and then start LP or Tape.

      When I'm done with the first side, pause the recording in Amadeus, flip LP or cassette, select the empty side 2 space then restart recording and play of LP or tape.

      Then I go thru the Amadeus Pro file and remove any empty space before the song marker and after the song ending. Go thru the entire file and save it.

      I burn it to disc using Amadeus Pro and set 2 seconds between titles. I did 78 albums for my Niece and also created the CD Labels Front and Back to put in the new cd case. I Scan the LP front and Back covers and print those using Swift Publisher on Gloss paper

      I mark the blank CD's with a fine point Sharpie -Title, Artist, Date, Catalog Number. Don't use Stick on Avery CD Labels because when they start lifting, they pull the coating off the top and theCD laser won't reflect properly so it destroys the CD.

      Was that more than you wanted to know???

      Oh, I forgot to mention. If the Vinyl is in bad shape, I spent a whole lot of time, sometimes 8 hour days, cleaning pops, clicks and skips to get a reasonably good transfer. There were usually some I could not get rid of , but for 50 year old records, it just can't be helped sometimes. Weird to hear pops and clicks on a CD though.
