Key Concepts In USB Turntable Design

Jun 9, 2008
There's nothing worse for the aging vinyl records than the degradation that occurs after years of sitting, collecting dust. Even when confined to acceptable locations, a vinyl record only has a set number of years before it is virtually unusable. In such a case, music fans need to take advantage of technologies such as the USB turntable.

USB technology is employed in the USB turntable so as to give installation and setup an easy process. In fact, the common USB turntable will require little to no setup at all! This makes the act of transporting audio from a vinyl record to digital media as easy as can be, all thanks to some rather astounding advances in technology. This way, porting a large collection of audio will take no time at all.

An interesting upgrade that many USB turntables incorporate is the ability to support fast recording. This is a new technology that essentially plays the vinyl record at a faster than normal rate, and then the musical software included with the turntable will return the recording back to the normal pace once the recording is complete. This can shave off hours of time when one is trying to convert a large collection of vinyl discs into digital audio.

For maximum effect, a USB turntable product should always be accompanied by software that can help make efficiency and audio editing a breeze. In many cases the USB turntable hardware will need to be edited with software, as the output may be too loud, lacking depth, or have timing issues or a host of other issues that could give audio fanatics a headache.

While it isn't required, some USB turntable systems will come with built-in speakers and amplifiers. These tools will allow vinyl record owners to enjoy the music anytime they want- and in many cases, while the record is even recording to the laptop or computer. This works well for trying to remember certain vinyl records for labeling and tracking purposes, but of course, isn't a necessity.

For anyone who has previously had trouble with certain types of software or hardware, specifically Mac or Linux fans, there is room to rejoice. Many USB turntables will provide cross platform support for their brands, meaning anyone with a major operating system can enjoy the ease of use that comes from a USB turntable. Consumer should check with the specific brands before purchasing, however, as not all offer cross platform support.

Closing Comments

In the end, the USB turntable is one of few options available to those who want to extend the life of their vinyl record collections. It will take any vinyl record, record it digitally to one's computer, and essentially give the audio an unlimited lifetime under pristine conditions. This is also a good idea for when making backups of vinyl records before storing them in a storage facility, or otherwise getting rid of them in some shape or form. Whatever the case, an apt solution lies within the common USB turntable.
