Useful Gadget of the Week: USB Audio Cassette Tape Converter Revives Old Memories
In the annual trek to our loft for the Christmas decorations I spotted an old friend – a case of audio tapes from my youth. Amongst them was a pub recording I’d made of a Belfast band we followed during the 80′s called ‘Ghost of an American Airman‘. How cool would it be to listen to that again, but how to get it transferred to a digital format?
For under £20 you can get this little Audio Cassette Tape Converter that plugs into your computers USB socket and captures the sound with its included audio editing software. If you’ve still got an old cassette deck with an output and a computer with an analogue audio in port then you could hook those up together instead with a simple phono to 3.5mm jack cable.
Now you can resurrect all those old boot legs, recordings of your children and mix tapes you sent your significant other back in the day and convert them to MP3 or CD.
