Golden Records is a converter for vinyl records and cassette tapes that allows users to convert their favorite music to CD or MP3 files on Windows PC. The software is stable, simple to use, and comprehensive, making it one of the most popular audio conversion choices.
Users can use Golden Records to convert cassettes, vinyl records, tapes, and LPs to CD or MP3 formats. The software includes tools for automatically cleaning up damaged audio, removing hiss, clicks, and pops from old tapes, and normalizing recording volume when converting to CD.
Golden Records includes a simple wizard that guides users through the conversion process. It can detect silence and split audio into tracks automatically, and users can use Phono RIAA eq in the software to avoid the need for a pre-amplifier. The software can also convert 78 RPM records to play on a 45 RPM player. Once the conversion is complete, users can record CDs using a built-in CD burner or transfer the files to portable devices such as the iPhone, iPod, or PSP.
