VinylStudio is the best way to convert records and tapes to digital format. Taking your old LP albums and transferring them to your computer could not be easier. Now everyone can rip their vinyl records in a few easy steps.
VinylStudio makes the job a pleasure, rather than a chore, and the powerful sound cleaning filters can help rescue precious, damaged recordings. Download a copy and see why using Audacity for this task is doing it the hard way.
VinylStudio is not just another audio editor, and although it records to standard MP3 and WAV file formats, it doesn’t edit audio files directly. VinylStudio’s audio cleanup tools are extremely effective at removing clicks and scratches from your recordings.
VinylStudio does not expect you to keep track of your recordings manually. Instead, it stores them as a collection, organised by artist and album title.

What’s New in VinylStudio 9:
- Easier initial startup process for new users.
- In the Windows version (only), we have switched to a larger font for the user interface. This, and the background, are now configurable by the user, see Menu -> Options -> Change Font and Background.
- The Mac version is now 64 bit. It does, however, still run on 32 bit machines.
- VinylStudio now uses multiple threads (in parallel) when saving your tracks. This can result in a considerable speedup on multi-core machines.
- VinylStudio can now group saved tracks into folders by artist and album title on data CDs and DVDs. This is useful for DVD players that can only handle a limited number of files in any one folder.
- Creating an album when you start recording or import a sound file has been streamlined. It should now be more obvious what to do, especially for new users, with fewer popups.
- VinylStudio can now read and write cue sheets (not available in VinylStudio Lite).
- Due to changes in Amazon policy we have been forced to remove the Amazon databases from the lookup track listing function. Sorry about that, but Discogs is better anyway.
- Improved functionality when importing multiple audio files – you can now add to existing album sides whereas before you had to always start from side 1.
- When inserting a track break you can now tell VinylStudio to split the current track (rather than adding a track at the end) by holding down the Alt / Option key.
- Improved the accuracy of the rumble filter.
- Spectral View is faster, especially on multi-core machines.
- Better support for input devices that switch automatically between PCM and DoP.
- Support for PCM768k and DSD512 recording and playback formats.
- Implemented ‘Fade to Middle’ – generates a convenient fade between tracks automatically when the end marker and following start marker have been moved apart.
- More accurate recording level indicators.
- By popular request, when recording the ‘Stop’ button now flashes, thus making it easier to identify.
- On Windows, VinylStudio now supports IMAPIv2 for burning CDs and DVDs (as well as IMAPIv1 and StarBurn). This will help people who cannot use the existing ‘burning engines’ for some reason.
- Implemented shortcut keys to save (5) and restore (6) the current zoom level and cursor position in the Split Tracks and Cleanup Audio windows.
Changes in VinylStudio 9.0.6:
- Fixed support for 8-channel devices via WASAPI (Windows only).
- Removed the limit of 100 markers per album side.
- Removed the 100-files-at-a-time import limit (and corresponding misleading error message).
- Improved the precision of the track break markers.
- Fixed a couple of bugs in ‘Import Files’, the worst one being that the wrong album name was sometimes used.
- Fixed a problem reading FLAC files on older (pre-SSE3) processors. VinylStudio should now run on any machine, no matter how old.
- Scan for Clicks can now (optionally) scan all album sides at once.
- Cut-and-splice now works correctly for DSD recordings. Please note that this can cause audible artefacts if used during a passage of music when saving your tracks as DSD (there is no -cross fade’ applied). If you want to eliminate gaps between tracks or get rid of dead air at the end of a recorded album side, this is better done by manipulating the track break markers.
- Fixed a crash importing files when creating an album at the same time. Problem introduced in 9.0.6 Beta 1.
- Fixed a crash if you shut down VinylStudio, tried to download an update or changed the font while a recording or CD burn was in progress.
- Fixed importing WAV files created by Sugar Cube devices.
- Occasionally, tracks saved in AAC or Apple Lossless format would not play (Mac only). This has been fixed. For any albums affected, just save your tracks again.
- Fixed a problem where VinylStudio was playing audio too fast (and sometimes crashing) on certain devices with ‘Use WASAPI for playback’ checked (Windows only).
- Fixed a crash burning data CDs / DVDs.
- Stopped VinylStudio sometimes claiming that it is expecting QDoP when DSD native is selected (Windows only).
- Worked around a problem with track names not showing up on iOS devices in Albums view when saving tracks in AIFF or WAV format (Apple’s bug!).
- Fixed a crash saving DFF / DSF files with ‘mix down to mono’ selected.
- Removed support for WASAPI mode on Windows 10 with recording devices which report themselves as USB Audio CODEC. This appears not to work correctly after all (Windows problem, Windows only).
