Hello all , thisone is in English , so sorry 4 the possibly wrong grammar , i'm Dutch
I'm really getting sick and tired of the RIAA and Buma Stemra and all those M.F. record companies with their protected audio-cd shit.
So here a short manual that garantees you a good audio cd copy , no matter what protection they'll have.
First scoor a computer with soundcard (line-in) & cd-burner , a ordinary cd-player (but a real goodone with high end d/a converters is prefferred) , and a good (with gold and extra shield) and short analog audio cable (2 tulip connectors -> stereo minijack.)
For the computer record software , be shure it supports the hardware of your soundcard , and take a open-source recorder. Open source because you won't find any weird microsoft protection shit in your recordings.
Now start the recorder on your computer , and let it record from your analog line-in. (prefer a samplingrate of 48KHz instead of 44.1Khz) as a wav file. (be shure you record every track on the cd seperately to a wav file, otherwise you'll get a cd with one big track on it )
Now put the devil's copy-protected-cd in the ordinary cd-player , connect the analog out of the cd-player with the line-in on the soundcard. Play the first track , take a loud passage and set the recording level on the recorder , so that it won't clip (maybe autorecordvolume if you're a lazy ass?).
Start the hifi cd-player , start the wav recorder , do this 4 each track on the cd.
(if you record at 48Khz , you'll get a better sounding copy then da original , this because a cd-player sounds better at 48Khz instead of the 44.1Khz originally).
Now start your burning software , and burn those wav-files to a new cd (audio-cd)
Because you copy it analog , and your recorder software is open source , i think we can copy like hell 4 years .
Digital copy = always faster . but you never know what's encrypted in the I & O 's..
Have fun !!!
