Who would have thought in 2016 you have multiple turntable options — not just from multiple manufacturers but multiple options from just one manufacturer. Audio-Technica has a range from simple home use to pro level equipment. The AT-LP60-USB is their automatic USB turntable. This is a belt-drive turntable with a USB output that allows you to convert your vinyl to digital, or play records through what most likely is your digital audio system. It comes with a USB cable, two RCA to mini-plug cable (one male, one female), 45RPM adapter, and cartridge with stylus.

Is everyone sick of all the pre-Macworld Expo talk? OK, I have to admit that I’m not, but we decided it was time to talk about something else. And who better to go to that something else than Guy’s brother Larry Grinnell!

The Book of Audacity

On May 3, 2011, in Book Review, How-To, Review, by Elisa Pacelli

The Book of Audacity

Author: Carla Schroder
Company: No Starch Press
Price: $34.95 US, $40.95 CDN
360 pages

Audacity is an extremely popular, open source audio editor used by musicians, podcasters, and anyone who needs to record and edit audio files. Just because it’s free doesn’t mean it’s a flimsy application. On the contrary, Audacity is immensely powerful, with a bit of a learning curve. Author Carla Schroder does a fabulous job of explaining how and why to use Audacity in her book, The Book of Audacity, published by No Starch Press.

One caveat before reading: while Audacity is a multi-platform application, Schroder’s focus is on Windows and Linux. All of her examples and illustrations show Windows and Linux screens; not a Mac in sight. This could be a problem for readers who are very new to Macs and/or computers. Stay with it. It will take a little more effort, but it will be worth it.
