I am starting to record my records to the computer using Audacity. I only have a laptop with no sound card now. So I need to use the USB interface into the computer. I have two issues I need to ask you guys about:
1. I want to hear what I am recording through the computer speakers. I cannot find a way to do this in Audacity. I am getting noise on the meters but I'm not sure what it is since I can't hear it. Any ideas?
2. I am hooking up my turntable directly into the computer USB since there's no sound card. Do I need an amp? like this?
I need something that outputs the signal from the turntable via composite audio, amplifies it and then to a USB into the computer. I have cable adapters for the input and output sides for this one. My budget is under $50.
Audacity recognized my Hauppauge video device for audio only, so I think it will recognize my turntable with an amp. I could use the Hauppauge but I may not get the best sound. Plus I cannot hear the music through the computer speakers. Not sure if that is Hauppauge related or not.
Thanks for suggestions and help in advance.
