Default Cassette to CD burner

Yea, so hi, long time no see, etc etc.


My old man has an insanely large cassette collection, and he has decided that he wants to copy as much of them as possible onto cd's

now Im not even sure were to begin with this one, the device doesn't even need to be connected to a computer it can be stand alone.

Any ideas or at least places to look?

Sure I could google it, but I hope someone has better knowledge here.

Saw this, while Googling. :P

How to Transfer Cassette Tape to Computer - wikiHow

That sounds about right. I did it soooo many years ago.

The problem i see is being able to detect the starts and ends of tracks. I remember when I had a Sony mini-disc player*, there was a feature that allowed me to edit the starts and ends of the tracks. There was some thing that would do this automatically as it would detect any 2 second pauses. However I found this was more trouble that it was worth as
- Some songs might have a 2 second silent pause (eg. AC/DC's Jailbreak with "I made it out [insert pause] with a bullet in my back."
- Ministry of sound CD where there are no pauses.

Editing this was rather time consuming.

I did it once using some audio recording software, and a tape deck that had RCA outputs, just used a RCA to 3.5mm adapter (I think that's the size) and then I played the tape on the tape player, and pressed record on the software, it even attempted to find breaks between songs, though, it proved to be annoying somewhat.
