    Pedro, sounds interesting (and time-consuming) what you are doing. can you tell me your process as I am interested in transferring some of my vinyl recordings on to my harddrive and then to MP3 format. I have a Mac G4 laptop.  What programs and/or hardware connections do I need?

    Also, can anyone recommend the best (and easiest to learn) program out there to get a mixes on to a cd via turntables>mixer>G4 harddrive? I heard that ProTools is good for this. I downloaded the free version but it seems a formidable task to learn.
