VinylStudio 11.7.1 – Converts LPs and tapes to CD and MP3

VinylStudio is software that helps you transfer your vinyl albums (or cassette tapes) to your computer. It 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.

VinylStudio Feature Highlights:

  • An all-in-one solution for digitizing your record or tape collection
  • Easy-to-use track-splitting functions
  • Automated click and scratch removal
  • Look up track listings and album art over the Internet
  • Save your tracks in a wide variety of file formats, fully tagged
  • Extensive ‘rollover’ help to guide new users
  • Multi-level undo/redo
  • Integrates with iTunes on the Mac
  • Burns both audio and MP3 CDs

The following features are offered in VinylStudio Pro only:

  • The ability to import and export CUE sheets.
  • The ability to import more than one audio file at a time.
  • Recording equalisation (as used for ‘flat’ phono preamps and when recording pre-RIAA discs).
  • The ability to search more than one database at a time in the ‘Lookup Track Listing’ window.
  • The ability to import collections from Discogs.
  • Spectral View, to locate those hard-to-find clicks and scratches.
  • The ability to set default filter settings and equalisation curves.
  • The ability to define custom equalisation curves / FFT filters.
  • The ‘Patch’ feature, to repair wide areas of damage.
  • The ability to load and save ‘noise sample’ files in the Filter Settings window.
  • The ability to define custom album status names to keep track of your work.
  • The ‘Perform Frequency Analysis’ feature.
  • The ability to enter album notes.
  • The ability to print your collection.
  • The ‘Copy to Player’ function.
  • The ability to create Windows Media Player playlists.
  • The ability to export track listings when burning CDs or DVDs.
  • Most of the functions provided in the ‘Batch’ window. Instead, users can save their tracks for the album they are working on in the ‘Split Tracks’ window.
  • DSD support.
  • The ability to search Discogs by catalog number when creating or recording a new album.

Changes in VinylStudio 11.7.0:

  • VinylStudio can now normalise each track separately when normalising a recording (Adrian Snowdon).
  • Improved keyboard interface (arrow keys) to the slider controls on the Mac. This already worked on Windows.
  • By request, increased the brightness of the waveform display in dark mode somewhat (Mac only).
  • Fixed ‘Mix down to mono’ not working when saving tracks with ‘Save corrections’ disabled.

  • Fixed some issues applying batch filter settings and filter setting presets.
  • Fixed a crash reading very large CAF files (Mac only).

  • Again by request, VinylStudio can now play the first and last 5 seconds of each track so that you can review your track breaks before burning a CD or saving your tracks.

  • Improved the way VinylStudio handles screen layout changes for different fonts (Windows only).

  • Made it possible to adjust the recording level (and other) sliders with the arrow keys on the keyboard on the Mac (for machines equipped with trackpads, mainly). This already worked on Windows.
