Transfer Vinyls To MP3 With Audacity

Yes I said “vinyls” lol :p In this video I walk you through how to transfer vinyl from your turntable into Audacity. It’s super easy and fun. Here’s some of products I’m using and talk about in the video:
Sylvania USB Record Player: https://amzn.to/2UPNzrq (Sound Burger Style)
Behringer UFO202: https://amzn.to/2SJn5KI (this is if you are using a regular analog turntable, do not confuse with UCA202!)
Velvet record cleaning brush kit: https://amzn.to/2I2jbZi
Pfan-Stat record cleaning solution: https://amzn.to/2WW072v
My vinyl album, Manasota https://anthillrecordings.bandcamp.co...
If you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to ask!

Every Single Audacity Preference Explained!

Audacity is a powerful free program that can be used for just about any audio need. The user community is gigantic, and has a wealth of information online, in print, and in video form. However I couldn’t find a video that walked through every single setting in the preferences menus and explained them, so I thought I’d make my own.

In this Audacity lesson I painstakingly go through every single option in the preferences menu within audacity and give in-depth explanations and examples for each one. This is a great way to learn some of Audacity’s hidden features, as well as have a deeper understanding of the software. Time-stamps below for each section of preferences. If you really want to learn nearly all there is to know about Audacity, I recommend the very highly rated book, The book of Audacity.  

Making Beats in Audacity with a Label Grid and Loops

This is a video made by request of José on Facebook. He asked “Hey. I use audacity but I don’t play drums or have anything to record drums. I wanted to record songs on audacity with midi drums but I don’t know how. Can you make a video on that, please? Stay cool!” Since Audacity doesn’t work with MIDI very well, I showed a work around by using a tempo track, label grid, and loops. Hopefully this will help Jose and others looking to make their own beats without drums in Audacity.
