TAPE TO CD TO MP3
Who listens to cassettes these days? CD? To get this onto the web, even midi isn't good enough. Today I got a new software to record CD directly to MP3. The CD was a recording of several tapes, among which was that of my graduation song, Class of 82.
I really need some help here. Do I set the bit rate low or high? From free format, 8 kbits per second, all the way to 160 kbits per second - which do I choose?
How does the sample rate (48,000 down to 8,000) relate to the bit rate?
The mode: stereo, joint stereo, dual channel, single channel.
Encoder model: fast or studio?
Channel map: St->2 Ch: 0=L, 1 =R or other settings?
Input resolution: 8-bit or 16-bit?
Unless I read the instructions, I'll just have to experiment by trial and error.
