Changes from version 9.0.3:
▪ This version includes a number of minor bug fixes - please see the Readme file after installing for details (Menu -> Help -> View Readme File).
Changes from version 8:
▪ Improved the initial startup (which was a bit clunky) when the program is run for the first time after installing.
▪ The software is now 64 bit. This fixes the 'incompatibility warning' that users are seeing on the latest version of High Sierra.
▪ 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.
▪ 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.
▪ 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 the other databases are 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.
▪ Worked around a problem with track names not showing up on iOS devices in Albums view when saving tracks in MP3 format.
▪ Spectral View is faster, especially on multi-core machines.
▪ Improved the accuracy of the rumble filter.
▪ Better support for input devices that switch automatically between PCM and DoP.
▪ Implemented 'Fade to Middle' - generates a convenient fade between tracks automatically when the end marker and following start marker have been moved apart. You'll find it in the menu.
▪ Implemented shortcut keys to save (5) and restore (6) the current zoom level and cursor position.
▪ Fixed a problem declicking DSD files.
▪ When saving a copy of a recording in the Cleanup Audio window, always save it in stereo, even if Mix down to Mono is set for that album (which was always the intention). To save in mono, use 'Save Selection As'.
▪ Various other minor changes and bug fixes. For details, please see the Readme file after installing.
Ratings and Reviews
I've used quite a few different types of software in the past for recording vinyl, none of them come close to Vinyl Studio. It's so easy to use you'll be recording in twenty minutes, if you do need to know anything the help files and tutorials are brilliant and comprehensive.
One of the most time consuming procedures when recording vinyl is typing in all the track names and finding the artwork to go with your recording, no problem with Vinyl Studio!! it will find the track names and the artwork for you and apply them to the correct tracks. Ten minutes after the recording process has finished you will have the tracks split the artwork saved and the track names done, one button fix to sort any clicks if you need it and its ready to be saved.
Vinyl Studio has a very clever (and simple) way of saving space on your hard drive as well, so if you want to experiment with the editing tools and save several versions of the same LP it doesn't take up loads of space.
Don't hesitate to purchase Vinyl Studio, if you have vinyl you want to record for listening to when you are out and about then this is a no brainer. You won't regret it, do it now, keep buying the vinyl and playing it. Vinyl Studio makes your LP's even better value for money. PK
Great application a MUST if you are importing vinyl records
This application has been great. I have now imported 100 LPs and it does a great job, saves time and even gives you print out of track listingsand album art work etc. A few years ago I tried using ree software but it was tedius and I gave in after a couple of tries. This software guides you through the process - allows you to import track information as well as album info and artwork. It also includes a comprehensive repair suite of tools and the ability to burn CDs or even import directly into itunes with all of the data and artwork. I had a small issue and contacted the developer - they responded immediatly and even provided a upgrade with a fix to my problem - so great support. All in all I thoughrally recommend you to buy this application. I got a free tial download from there web site before I purchased which is also a great feature. Well done AlphineSoft (I have no connection with them, just a satisfied customer)
Having tried a number of free programs to digitise my collection of vinyl and cassettes, none of which did the whole job, and all of which had some drawbacks, I wish I had bought this app sooner. It does everything you could possibly want in a simple and logical way. So far I have recorded 22 albums, done click and hiss correction, saved the tracks in FLAC fromat, exported them to iTunes, burnt CDs, exported the track list to CD labelling software and everying has been virtually flawless. Ok the GUI is a bit old fashioned and you do have to invest a little time in learning how to use it, but the functionality it provides is well worth the effort. The correction functions are excellent and have resurrected some very old and crackly vinyl without having to change the default settings. Even one album where it found over 20,000 clicks on each side is perfectly listenable after 2 passes.
