An Odyssey from Vinyl to Digital

Posted on January 12, 2017 at 12:10 AM

"Beam Me Up , Scotty"


The Odyssey is over. I completed transferring all of my vinyl record albums to digital files. I chose a sampling rate of 96khz/24 bit for the FLAC files that I created. I shared a few of the files with friends and they are getting high marks for their quality.


This project was enlightening, educational and enjoyable. Hearing music that I love that I have not heard in decades is a wonderful benefit. Music is a very powerful force on our psyche. (The only competitor is probably our sense of smell -- the olfactory sense.) Hearing a particular song can instantly move us across space and time to other experiences, as though we were in a "transporter". (A rudimentary form of virtual reality?) There is little else that could make an 85 year-old feel like a teenager again. (By the way, I am not 85 -- I have quite a ways to go before I get there.)

If you have questions for me about the project or the music, please feel free to click the "Contact" link, above.


In the mean time, I am considering another blog. The theme will be "Lost Sounds". There are sounds that are disappearing (or have already done so) from our "soundscape". I would like to capture those sounds, save them, and make them available in an on-line "museum". Stay tuned.
