skyhawk, recording audio tapes is very similar to what had been answered in this weeks newsletter in regards to vinyl to cd.

I believe the only difference here is that for tape to computer transfer you are not required to use a pre-amp or stereo receiver since the output signal from a tape deck is strong enough to be recorded. So all you have to do is follow the instruction in this thread:

And not worry about the preamp or stereo receiver and directly connect the tape player to your computer.

Hope this helps,
