Noise Reduction 2.0: Converting Vinyl to CD

Noise reduction 2.0 is one of the most reliable and efficient sound restoration plugins. It is used by numerous professionals today, since it has become increasingly popular to transfer older vinyl records to digital media such as CDs and DVDs.

Creating a digital copy of your vinyl record is easy, but also useful, since you can save wear and tear on your precious original records. Noise reduction not only helps you transfer the vinyl record to a CD, but it also helps you improve the quality of sound, removing hiss and clicks. Here is how you can convert vinyl to CD in a few easy steps.

Step 1: Connecting the Hi Fi to Your PC

The first thing you need to do is connect the hi-fi to your computer. If the PC has a line input, you can easily connect it using the stereo minijack cables of your hi-fi. However, the faster and most reliable way is to use a USB connection. Modern hi-fi systems have USB ports, allowing you to connect them easily to your computer, avoiding the hassle of software or hardware recognition.

Step 2: Using the Audio Editing Software

Obviously, you have an audio editing software able to split the vinyl into tracks, convert them to mp3s, and save them to your computer. Follow the guidelines of your software program to complete the procedure. 

Step 3: Restoring the Sound Quality

Noise Reduction comes into the game now; in a single operation, the plug in will detect possible audio and sound problems and will remove surface noise, hiss and clicks, offering you perfect sound quality.
