So here's what I'm trying to do: I have a bunch of music on vinyl that I would like to put on my PC in mp3 format. I was wondering if it would be possible to route the audio out from my record player into a sound card on my PC and use some recording software "upload" the songs to my PC. (It should be obvious by now that I know absolutely nothing about recording. ) What would you experts reccommend for an entry level sound card with software that can be used for this application? I've started doing some research myself and found the E-MU 1212 sound card. Is this a good choice? I should also add that I use this same computer for listening to music and playing games such as half life 2 so it needs to be able to do that as well as interface with my logitech z640 speakers (5.1 setup). Thanks for any help!
