INCLUDED SOFTWARE
There are two programs included on the CD for the
recording of vinyl records. The first program is called
RecordMate LP and is intended for normal PC users,
does not require too much system power from the
computer and is very easy to use.
The second program is called Audacity and is a more
advanced program that has many additional functions
and settings for editing the sound settings and output
of the record player. We recommend this program for
advanced users and users who want these additional
possibilities. Audacity requires more power from your
computer and is therefore not recommended for older
computers.

volume, for RecordMate LP. This can be done in the
