Convert cassette tapes to CDs with Audacity

Dave Andrews gives a simple overview of how to take a cassette tape and convert it to a CD using Audacity. First you will need a cassette tape player, like a boom box, with a microphone jack. Then you'll want to download the free program called Audacity. To begin recording music from the cassette tape simply press the record button on the audacity application while you press the play button on the boom box. You'll want to make sure the audio cable is connected from the boom box to the PC. Finally, export the audio file out of Audacity to a .WAV file and save it on your desktop PC. From your PC you can now burn a music file onto a CD. Using these steps you can easily convert cassette tapes to a CD.
