Ripping Records

Chet Atkins recordA 45 MB Quicktime movie showing a guy ripping and scanning his records (you know – those 12 inch in diameter, thin, black, plastic circles that existed before compact discs) with a great soundtrack. For each of his 609 albums he:

  • Scanned the front and back jacket.
  • Scanned each side of the record itself.
  • Ripped every song as an MP3.

All are available on his site. I predict the site will be up for another week at most.

  1. you know, this is the kinda thing that i inevitably get asked every year from someone old and just barely computer savvy. I should keep these links and send them to those people, but i’ll continue with my “i dunno, line in and record” stance on the whole thing… :/
