Digitize Your Records and Cassettes

index.jpg

This month’s Maker Club is a demonstration on How to Digitize Your Records and Cassettes. Vinyl records and audiocassettes can be damaged easily and degrade over time. Preserve your audio memories (and make them portable to CDs, iPods, computers, and the like) by digitizing them! All you need is a computer with a line-in jack, a record or cassette player with a headphone jack (or USB jack), a cable to connect the two (or the kind of adapters we’ll talk about during the Maker Club), free software, and a little bit of know-how.

Here’s a short introduction to Linux for beginners! (For the geeks out there, yes, some of this is going to be simplified).

Microsoft makes Windows, Apple makes Mac OS X, and Linux is open-source, which means it’s made by… anyone who wants to make it! It’s free, easier to use than Windows 8, runs faster on older computers than modern versions of Windows, and best of all, you don’t really have to worry about viruses!

Artist of the Week #7: William Shatner

Confession time: I love William Shatner.  I love him in Star Trek; I love his cameos on sit-coms; I love him in those Priceline commercials.  He's just very funny!  So, imagine my excitement when I found that there is an album of Shatner performing classic songs like "Rocket Man", "Bohemian Rhapsody", and "Iron Man".  Needless to say, I checked it out and have been listing to these awesome tunes all weekend.  It's a two-disc set, as well, which just makes things better and better!  Obviously, I couldn't let the opportunity pass to make this our next Artist of the Week.
