copy tape to cd & make tracks, software needed

by Matt784 / August 20, 2010 10:14 AM PDT

Hi, I am looking for a simple program that will allow me to separate 1 big file into many different tracks. I am trying to take tapes & convert them into CD's with each song on it's own track. Everything i want a simple user friendly software that doesn't have unnecessary bells & whistles for this project. Preferably free but i will take anything.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Tapes and LPs to CDs.....
by out_fisherman / August 24, 2010 2:09 PM PDT

Roughly 5 years ago I paid for a program called
"Wave Corrector", and IMHO it was worth every
penny, considering that ever since then all
upgrades to it have been free. Don't know if this
is still the company policy or not. I have made
many CDs from LPs, and a few cassette tapes.
The program offer many tweeks and filters
depending on the recording source, and in the
case of LPs does a pretty good job of making
separate tracks. If it misses a separation, it's
pretty easy to manually edit in another break.
You can also add song titles for each track.
Check it out.

There is a program called Audacity. It is a free audio editor that can record, edit, and save to mp3 for storage on your PC or to burn it to a CD. It can be downloaded from ( ) Hope this helps!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
