Hello all, long time reader responding here.

I'm posting this here because other people might want to know... RC, check out this webpage:

I did the pc to cassette player thing once to capture an internet only concert broadcast (Styx in Dallas 1996). Went into Radio Shack and just told them I wanted to hook my pc to my stereo and they handed me a red and black cable that had a Y attachment on one end (went into the cassette player, one plug for each speaker) and a single plug on the other that went into the pc. I still have it at home and you may borrow it, RC, but it couldn't have cost more than $8.

I think the hardest part might be making the file sound decent once you digitize it, but I noticed my Adaptec 4 has editing abilities that supposedly get rid of hisses and pops and the like. I assume other software also can do this. Save each file once you're done into a .wav file, then make an audio cd out of them remembering to nix the 2 second gap (so concert recordings don't have that annoying gap).

Waving hi to Peter - you're right, Gotthard is very cool stuff!
