I've explored it and understand my own limitations, which mostly have to do with the particular pieces of equipment that I have presently and those I need to acquire.
I recorded everthing on an older Sony minidisc unit that does not have optical out only phones out soooooo.....
After some trial and error I learned that trying to down load to computer from phones out to Real Player was not good
because the signal was not strong, as it had been recorded at a low volume to minimize clipping.
The mini disc recordings are good I think, because of this.
In the meantime I have acquired some more old gear:
A Sony Mini Disc compnant player/recorder (also analogue in and out and only optical in) officially a Sony Minidisc Deck Mds-JE440
And a Pioneer CD Recorder/Player that has two channels digital in and out and analogue in and out
Pioneer Compact Disc Recorder PDR-05
I haven't tried this unit out yet, bought it used.
I understand that if I had the right computer set up that transferring
from minidisc to CD would not be a big problem
The problem for me is to decide what to buy and how much to spend
and keep it all within the relm of me actually being able to learn what to do, as I am mostly not a computer person which was why I was trying to solve the problem by circumventing computers and finding simple componants to achieve the task.
A nice computer set up is probably the way to go
in which case the task is what to get and for how much
Maybe the use of a sound card with the computer I'm using would be an inexpensive alternative to buying a whole set up
Pay or barter with someone to do it for me
I hope this is not Too Much Information
But this will help you know where I already am in the process
give me a call if you like
And Thanks again
