    Or a UFO202. The difference is the UFO is a TT preamp whereas the UCA is line level

    Marc Almond, Jeremy Reed and Othon - Against Nature. Inspired by the Huysmans novel, and rather good fun.

    While others have suggested using your computer to record, I prefer using a standalone recorder like a Roland R-05. You don't have to worry about getting it to properly interface with your computer and it's easy to move from room to room if you have your analog components scattered around the house.

    It's possible that my old ears are missing some flaws it may have, but it sounds fine to me. I set it to capture at 24bit/96kHz, copy the files into the computer and manipulate at that same rate, then when I'm done downsample to 16bit/44.1kHz. I save the capture files on Blu-rays in case I ever want to go back to them.

    In order not to hijack this thread I have started one in Ripping, Tagging etc which repeats the advice on ripping Vinyl so far -> http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...o-FLAC-mp3-etc

    Jenny Scheinman's Here on Earth

    Scheinman is an odd duck of a musician, working on the one hand in a kind of avant garde jazz idiom and on the other hand in a singer/songwriter/violinist mode. And now, on her third hand, as a kind of rootsy instrumentalist. All while getting great notice and reviews in the jazz press.

    In this case she takes on a commission to provide the soundtrack for a documentary on life in Appalachia, and does it with grace and energy, supported by an excellent small group of jazz-oriented musicians (including Bill Frisell). Wonderful. I'll have it on repeat.

    Some reviews:

    On her latest offering, Here On Earth, she takes on the ôfiddleö music of Appalachia, sprinkles it with Irish folk music and renders it into its essence- pure, unadulterated honest music of the working class who find solace from their daily drudgery in the joyful, bittersweet bows of a violin. . . The music is served up like a banquet feast, a suite with some shining highlights, but one that stands as a totally unified piece of art. An honest effort to pay homage to a music born from hardship but never victim to despair. One can listen to this album on repeat mode, as I have, and never get weary of its haunting melodies, nor doubt its underlying message of hope. There is nothing revolutionary about this music, but Jenny Scheinmanĺs Here on Earth is a reminder that sometimes the simplest music can make the greatest impression.
    Huffington Post

    Packed with moments of joyous ecstasy and wind-swept solemnity.
    Downbeat

    Scheinman herself sets the tone with her violin/fiddle, and there's a fine interweaving of her instruments with the guitars from Robbie Fulks and Robbie Gjersoe as well as Danny Barnes' banjo and tuba (along with his own guitar). In addition, Bill Frisell's electric instrument adds a burnished glow.

    I also just bought this on Amazon. Check the price of buying mp3 compared to the CD. Buy the CD that includes the mp3 download for a savings of over $2.00. Let me see, which one should I buy, DUH

    https://royalpotatofamily.com/produc...here-on-earth/ has a WAV download that I converted to FLAC so basically lossless and there is a 25% discount right now listed on the site. So unless you need the disk it works out about the same

    I've been listening to a lot of U2 lately. I've heard Bono and The Edge on the Howard Stern Show a couple of weeks ago and I really liked the interview. That kind of triggered this.
