I am the happy owner of a new Audio Technica USB turntable, and I'd like to put the USB functionality to use.
Has anyone out there used a relatively low-powered system to record from vinyl? Web instructions aren't much help - basically they'll say "your Mac or Windows system should work fine " but I'm thinking about using something like Linux running on the RikoMagic MK802
. I'm thinking of buying the MK802 for other uses
I've seen reports that at least one current Audio Technica model is recognized by Linux without much fuss. The peripheral support available on the MK802 is a separate issue and something I'll have to think about as well, since I'd like to use my USB soundcard.
This question really is more about : what kind of processing speed and RAM will make it possible for me to get good-quality audio from my vinyl?
I have a question out to one of the MK802's vendors on this but have not heard back.
Examples of what you used would be helpful, especially if you are running Linux.
