Music projects

Posted: Saturday, December 29, 2007 by Travis Cody in

I've got over 300 cassette music tapes in a plastic tub. I've been looking for a good option for converting them to CD, and I finally found it last week at the Sharper Image store.

Woooooooo!! This is the Ion Tape2PC USB Cassette Archiver. It RAWKS! All you do is plug the USB cable into the laptop, drop a cassette in the player, and record using the software provided. Then the software uploads to Itunes. From there I can burn CD's or download to my Ipod.

It's gonna take awhile, but I'm so happy to finally have the piece of equipment I need to do this.

Plus, sitting right next to the cassette archiver was this...

...the Ion USB Turntable/Vinyl Archiver. It works on the same principle. After I finish with the cassette project I can move on to the albums and 45's.

My sweet Lady got them for me. She's the best!

  1. Wow! Great gifts! I'm gonna have to tell hubby about these; we have lots of tapes, and tons and tons of vinyl.

  1. I've been thinking about getting one of these too. I have the sharper inmage catalog right here. Thanks for reminding me to do this. Have a great day Travis. :)

    Ann: They are way cool!

    Turn: **blush**

    Matt: Yup yup!

    Sarge: Not only do I have mine, but I've got my mom's too. So much grand music and now I can listen to it again, and make CD's for Mom.

    Bee: Ha! Luckily I haven't been carrying those things around all this time.

    Songbird: You definitely won't regret the investment in this equipment.

    Sandee: Serendipity!

  1. Now if only they could make one that magically recognizes the tunes that get stuck in my head and convert those!

    I've got some great old albums I'd love to convert to CD. Thanks for the info and have fun.

    I have the turntable but haven't had a chance to use it yet. But I can't wait, I have so many albums that I want to convert to cd.

  1. so...if I send you MY plastic tub...

    what a wonderful girl you have...being able to select an appropriate gift is special...

  1. Travis says:

    Starr: That would be something!

    Jeff: I think this is going to be one of the all time great investments.

    John: I went for the cassettes first because I'm very nervous about how well my albums will actually play. They've been stored for so long. Fingers crossed though!

    TC: Isn't it?

    Katherine: LOL! She is the most amazing girl too.
