More mac help :)

So, I bought a USB turntable, and I've been ripping LPs to AIFF and MP3s.
Problem is, that once I use something like Audacity to do the recording,
iTunes will not play again until I restart. It's just iTunes too - it's not
the sound totally. I can hear my IM program sounds, etc. If I reboot the
Mac iTunes will work again, but only until I start ripping <g>.

Anyone have any idea how to "reset" this without rebooting? I imagine that
even if it was the equivalent of alsaconf (Linux) it would probably totally
reset the card and even fix iTunes, but I'm not sure.

Thanks.

Expect a shipment soon of several hundred LP's. No hurry, ripping them
all and sending them back by the end of next week will be fine. <g>

Ship at your convenience - but I cannot guarantee turn-around time <g>

What!?!?!?!?! The way you say that makes me think that I am not your
highest priority.

DZanre,

Does that really work? Does it work with 78s? I have one 78 that was
recorded in 1928? That I need ripped. I am thinking of buying one of
those for that sole purpose.

Uggh. Been there done that...not planning on doing it EVER again.
I did a bunch of childrens records that to my knowledge don't exist
anywhere anymore, but oh man what a lot of work.

I was thinking more on the lines of depending on how well I like the music
you send, it might take a LONG time to get the songs ripped 🙂

It does really work. As far as 78s go, it will depend on whether the
turntable you purchase has 78 speed. I did read somewhere that you can
record in 45, for example, and Audacity can "speed it up" for you converting
it to 78. No idea how well that works. That said, I have a lot of 78s in
my Victrola cabinet. Maybe I'll give it a try.

As for my "problem", it seems to be user error. I was "testing" the EZ
Audio program that also comes with the turntable, and I ripped an entire LP
to MP3s with it, cause it looked "easier" than Audacity. Turns out while
they sounded great while I was listening to the recording, all of the MP3s
were just absolutely silent <g>.

If you're interested in selling it at discounted price when you're done
shoot me an email. I have wanted to do this but can't see buying
something for a single purpose like this.

Sure - of course it may be months before I'm finished at the rate I'm going

Well, you might have a point there as a lot of my Dad's LP's are ones that
reflect his rather eclectic tastes. There are out of print Harry Lauder, Jean
Redpath and other Scottish performers. Additionally, there are a number of out of
print (and never made it to cassette or CD) classical recordings.And then my own
recordings of this gentleman: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSiFASGKjBI who I
found in getting this link had passed away in February. He had a four and half
octave range

With all the people in this group alone wanting records
ripped, I wonder if there's a gap in the market for a
service that will rip your LP's for you.

What might be a reasonable charge per record?

Sounds like it'd probably work, but you might want to quickly check
whether you need to change the stylus first -- I was under the
impression 78s were played with a rather coarser needle than the one
used on a modern microgroove record, and had different tracking
requirements (although the latter I expect can be adjusted!)

The last 45-33 1/3-78 turntable I saw had two cartridges mounted on
opposite sides of the tone arm, the headshell was rotated through 180
degrees when changing from 45 or 33 1/3 to 78.

That is a good point - my Victrola has a VERY heavy arm and thick needle
compared to a modern turntable.
