I have many mixed tapes. These tapes are from my youth, music I can't find anywhere, recordings from friends overseas when telephone calls were expensive. These tapes are valuable to me. So I am willing to take the time to convert them to digital form for archives as well as have my music in itunes.
I am a complete novice when it comes to audio applications and really have no idea where to start. I have a Powermac g5 2.5 with 1g ram. I have almost 1tb of storage. So space is not an issue. Would I have to get a midi controller to plug a tape deck into it and them connect the midi into my mac so that any software that I use will be able to record the sound, granted of course that the application has the proper plug ins for the midi to work. Am I way of base with my thinking here or is this the way? What application(s) would I need? Do I need a midi? What is a good midi controller? Am I missing something?
Please help me out. Thank you in advance.
