Here's Your Interface Mixer Preamp. It All Starts Here.
The Software Programs Are Detailed Below. Skip to The Programs?
OK, our Interface Mixer is really a bit of overkill. (All the knobs and sliders.) But, you want really great quality sound for your LPs, 45s and cassette copies to CDs and MP3s. And, a stripped down phono preamp with only a 65db signal to noise ratio won't cut it.

What's really important is that DAK's Interface Mixer Preamp is flat from 20-20,000hz and has a Signal to Noise Radio of -80db. The internal Phono Preamp strictly reproduces the RIAA frequency curve so you'll have flawless copies of all your LPs.

Here's all you need to do.
Arrow 1) Select EITHER Your Turntable or Cassette Deck.
Arrow 2) Slide The Input Volume Slider up to about 2/3rds.
Arrow 3)
Set the Fader all the way to A if you plugged your turntable or cassette deck into the A jacks on the back, or to B if you've plugged it into the B jacks.

Now You Know All You Need To Do To Set Up The Interface Mixer.
Oh, and here's my 5-minute easy setup movie tutorial that shows you all you need to do to connect everything. It's just this easy. Watch the movie.
YOU CAN DO THIS. It's Easy.

Here's The Back Of Your Interface Mixer.
Just Plug In The Cables And Start Copying.
The entire hookup is super simple. I just wanted you to see what to do now, before you buy it.
Arrow 1.) Just connect either your turntable or cassette deck to the A Left and Right Jacks and you're on your way. Oh, and if you have a 2nd turntable or cassette deck, just connect it to the B jacks.

Arrow 2.) Connect our included cable from the 'Sound Card Amp' outputs to the 'Line-In' on your sound card and your done. Or as the movies say, you've just begun to enjoy.

Arrow 3.) If you are using a turntable, connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground lug here. Never connect your turntable directly to your computer.

Now Let's Connect the Interface Mixer to Your Computer.
This Is your computer's Sound Card.

You DON'T have to open your computer or do anything complicated.

 
Just look at the back of your computer. You'll see 3 (or more) jacks on your sound card. The green jack is for your speakers. They should be plugged in there now. The pink jack is for a microphone. And the Blue Jack is where you plug in DAK's Interface Mixer Cable.
That's all there is to it.
And it's no harder to plug in our Interface Mixer than it was to plug in your computer speakers. You'll be up and running in just a few minutes.

"Finally,
a product that actually does what it says it will! The set up was as simple as the web site movies indicated. The movies, by the way, are superb teaching tools! As I continue I will be interested in learning what else I can do! But it was REALLY drop dead simple."

Now Let's Check Out Your Professional Disc Jockey Turntable.
It's a super heavy duty manual turntable that has all the features you need to get the best possible flawless sound from your LPs and 45s. Nothing was left out from its heavy aluminum platter, to its damped cueing arm to its precision anti-skating control. It's all shock mounted and from it's heavy duty dust cover (which many USB turntables don't seem to have) to its heavy duty super stable motor, this turntable will provide the best flawless reproduction of your treasured LPs and 45s.

If only the best will do for playing your treasured LPs and 45s or you demand only the very best sound for your copies, this professional disc Jockey turntable is the one you want.

It's Where The Stylus Meets The Groove.
It really is where the stylus meets the groove that counts. Nothing other than the cartridge and stylus have any effect whatsoever on the quality of your sound. The rest of the turntable determines flutter and wow and speed accuracy, but only the cartridge itself determines the quality of the sound you will hear.

Most USB turntables don't even come with a magnetic cartridge. They use the super cheap ceramic type. In fact, this cartridge alone sells for $69 which is more than many of the whole USB turntables sell for including their motor, plastic platter and all.

You're going to listen to your copies thousands of times. Don't trust the sound to a ceramic cartridge. Oh, and don't' even get me started about cartridges without an elliptical diamond stylus. I wouldn't even put a sapphire needle in the grooves of one of my treasured LPs, much less make copies that I was going to listen to over and over again.

OK, many better turntables today come with a premounted cartridge that's actually part of the turntable. Most professional DJs like to swap their top of the line cartridges depending on the type of music they are listening to. Well, while most of us don't actually do that, it's reassuring to know that we are including a Professional cartridge premounted on the industry standard headshell that is instantly swappable.

So this isn't a cartridge that comes mounted on the arm. But you don't have to worry about assembling the cartridge and attaching the wires. We've done that for you. It's already mounted to the headshell. All you need to do is push it onto the arm and tighten the connector.

This is a Dual Moving Magnet Phase II cartridge. It has the very finest elliptical diamond stylus for the best tracking. It has a super wide frequency response stretching all the way from 20hz to 20,000hz. It will reproduce your LPs and 45s flawlessly.

Heavy Aluminum Platter, Anti-Skating Super Heavy Duty
It's big. It's heavy. It has a Heavy Duty Belt Driven Drive System. Even the platter is all aluminum. And it's a perfect turntable to make flawless copies or take perfect care of your most treasured LPs and 45s.

Check the strobe at the left and set the pitch at the right. A full hinged removable dust cover protects your records and the turntable from dust. There's even a popup platter light so you can change discs in the dark if you're a professional DJ.

So, you know nothing is left out to make the sound, the care of your records and the function perfect. See below for detail about the arm.

Flawless Tracking & Anti-Skating Protects your Records & Gives You The Best Possible Reproduction of Your Treasured Albums.
Use the cueing arm lever to lower the arm and stylus into the groove. It's unbelievable to me the number of turntables that don't have cueing arms at all, or damped cueing arms if they have a cueing arm at all. A damped cueing arm slowly and gently lowers the arm, and there for the stylus into the groove. Don't buy a turntable without one.

Set the tracking weight. For playing records about 2.5 grams is perfect. For copying them I like to go up to about 3 or even 3.5 grams for the best reproduction. The controls on the turntable sure beat putting a quarter on the arm to keep it tracking the record. :)
Don't buy a turntable without a numbered anti-skating control so you can keep the record in the center of the groove.

Then set the anti-skating control.It's a law of physics. As the record spins, it tries to throw the stylus out of the groove. And while that really doesn't happen in a good turntable, it does try to push the stylus out of the center of the groove. And That's not good. So set the tracking to match the weight you set for the cartridge and you'll track the center of the groove for the best possible sound and preserve your records from excess ware.

I'm shocked to see that many turntables, and a few USB turntables I've seen do have an anti-skating knob, but they didn't even print numbers on it and they simply say that if the record skips to move the knob. Well we are long past records skipping. We want flawless center of the groove sound and loving care of our record grooves. Enough said?

Now you're ready to take perfect care of your most treasured LPs and 45s and enjoy the best possible sound obtainable, period.

Try a few 'scratch starts'. You'll be making great recordings, even if you want to start in the middle of track. And if you're a disc jockey, you'll be entertaining thousands in no time.

LPs may be from yesteryear to some people, but here at DAK, protecting yours and enjoying great sound is critical to all of our ongoing enjoyment of our favorite symphonies, musicals and songs.

And when you make a CD from this PRO DJ turntable, it will be wow and flutter free, perfectly tracked and the best possible sound reproduction you can get.

You Can even Adjust The Speed to Set Pitch Or Correct For Old Record Speeds.
Do you sing?
Do you play an instrument?
Do you have older LPs?

Well if you sing or play an instrument, you know that setting the pitch to match your voice is critical to using LPs created for someone else to sing along or play along with.

Plus, many LPs and 45s weren't cut just right. So this is one control you'll find that you use all the time. It really lets you adjust your music to suit your own personal taste.

Plus as you cue up one record and try to beat match it to another, you can't do it without perfect variable pitch/key control.

Important Note About Pitch And Key Control. You're also getting the DAK Wav Editor. It gives you the power to adjust your pitch/key in 1% increments after you've copied your LPs. So if you aren't copying an LP, use the Pitch control on the turntable. If you are copying it, then do it digitally in the DAK Editor.

See & SET Wow Free Perfect Speed for Flawless Copies To CD

Here I've blown up the strobe on the side of the platter. If the dots move, you're not at 33-1/3 or 45. If they don't move you are. Now that you have a benchmark, you can adjust the speed to suit the pitch that you like. It's powerful control of the way you'll listen to your music from now on.

Not Pretty, But Heavy & Stable. Aluminum Is the Only Way To Go. No Plastic here.

I'm surprised I even have to show you the bottom of the platter. But so many turntables coming out today have gone to plastic platters that I wanted to show you that DAK's Disc Jockey PRO turntable still uses aluminum for the platter to give you the maximum stability and freedom from flutter and wow. Always check any turntable you buy to be sure that the platter is made from aluminum, not plastic.

Even In Darkness You'll Select Tracks Perfectly With This Professional Disk Jockey Turntable.

It's a Pop Up Track Light. Pop it up and you'll easily see the tracks in a darkened room. This is especially useful if you are working a club at night. But for those of us using this turntable at home, it's a must if the turntable is built into a closet.

If you don't need it don't worry. But know that nothing was left off this professional DJ turntable that can aid you in getting the most from your treasured record collection and making the most flawless recordings possible.

Now You Know All About The Physical Part Of the LP And Cassette To CD & MP3 System


 
 
It's All Included in the LP & Cassette To CD & MP3 System.
Let's Check Out All Your Powerful Programs.
DAK's Scratch, Click Pop & Hiss Filter
It's normally $18. But It's included Free.
 
Just load as many tracks as you would like to have Clicks, Scratches, Pops or Hiss removed from. It's super easy to use and there's even a preview so you can hear the difference.

The best thing about DAK's Click, Pop And Hiss Filter is that it's really not really a filter at all. Actually it's a set of digital algorithms that remove clicks, scratches, pops and hiss WITHOUT HURTING YOUR MUSIC.


 
 
It's All Included in the LP & Cassette To CD & MP3 System.
Choosing What You Want To Restore Is Easy.

Here's the option screen of the Scratch, Click, Pop And Hiss Filter. The neat thing about this one it's totally automatic. Just click what you want to do and it does it. If you do choose to click any of the setup buttons, a screen for each will pop up that lets you configure the restoration filter any way you want.

Important Note Do dozens at once: You don't have to restore 1 track at a time. Load 100 tracks and let them be restored to new sound splendor while you do something else. This is a massive time saver. But what's most important is just how great the tracks really do sound after they are restored.

What do you want to do to restore your LPs, 45s and cassettes? Here I explain why you might want to use each audio restoration option.

  1. Minimize Big Clicks- This is for scratches and major clicks. You can probably see on the record itself the scratches, and clicks you want to remove.
  2. Minimize Small Pops- Here you can eliminate the small clicks and pops that you probably have hundreds of on each LP. This is very different from big clicks and is probably the most important part of restoration. It's the almost continuous clicks and pops that really tend to drive me crazy and I'll bet they bug the #%*#% out of you too.
  3. Filter Frequencies- Remove low frequencies (typically rumble and pulley noise) or high frequencies (typically noise from older vinyl records) from your LPs.
  4. Minimize Hiss- Get tape hiss and other continuous noises. It's called a "noise floor" the hiss you hear in areas of the sound that should be silent. It's great because it obliterates the hiss without hurting the music.
  5. Normalize Frequency- Make all your tracks have the same bass and treble balance. Different tracks from different LPs or tapes can have large tone differences, which can be very distracting. Now you can eliminate them.
  6. Normalize Volume- This Feature is important. If you copy tracks from different LPs and put them on a single CD, sometimes the volume will be different from track to track. This Audio Restoration tool will analyze then normalize all the tracks so you won't be fiddling with your volume control as you listen to your CDs in the car.
Oh, yes. Don't forget Preview- You can preview the before and after so you'll know just what an awesome improvement you are making.

And one more very important point. It creates a NEW file like yoursong_NEW.wav for each track that you restore. You don't want to lose your originals.

Check out my product review if you want more in-depth detailed info. This section is just to show you what to look for when you get your own Click & Pop Filter. Click to visit my in-depth Click & Pop Filter Review.

Want to see what a click, pop and a scratch look like? Chances are you already know what they sound like.


LP & Cassette Restoration
One Size Does Not Fit All.
Normally, you'll just use the default settings. You'll be amazed at how completely the clicks, scratches, crackle and hiss are removed.

But we've just added presets so, for example if you recorded an LP onto a cassette and now you are converting the cassette to digital, the algorithms in the program will remove the clicks and scratches from the original record and then remove the hiss from the cassette.

Above, you'll see that we even compensate for copying a monaural record with a stereo cartridge. We extract the virtual center channel for the best sound ever. Wow, now it's easier than ever to have perfect broadcast quality digital copies of your music.

BEFORE -
Here's What The Click & Pops Look Like.


AFTER -
All The Clicks & Pops Are Gone.
What does a click or pop actually look like? Most times you really don't need to know because the new automated programs do everything for you. In fact, the DAK program doesn't even show graphs because it does it all for you automatically. But here I've used the editor that came with my Sound Blaster Sound card to show you just what clicks and pops really do look like.

Your Included Click, Scratch & Hiss filter looks at each wave of your music and removes ONLY unwanted nonmusical clicks, pops and scratches. You can see in the picture above, that the clicks look like straight lines.

Music has a more angled attack. What you can't see and what's most important are the clicks and pops that stay within the sound wave that a click and pop filter removes. It's amazing how well these filters remove the annoying to terrible clicks and pops that really can ruin our music. The Demo above is actually taken from the track you see. It's from the Limeliters Folk Group. They are my favorite folk music group and we see them as often as we can. Check out www.limeliters.com if you're into folk music.

Get The Hiss Out For Great Digital Sound
Hiss is the curse of cassettes. You can't see it but it's there in the music and whenever there's a soft passage or pause, the hiss rears its ugly head and ruins your musical atmosphere.

Now, as you can see in my graphical example above, when you engage the new included Hiss Filter it identifies a noise floor and knocks the hiss down, way down without running your music. Let me repeat that. The hiss is removed WITHOUT HURTING THE MUSIC. It's fully automated, there's nothing for you to do. Just click start and you'll enjoy your music like never before, hiss free and pure.


 
Here's More About DAK's New Included Holy Grail Song Splitter
Just Load Your Copied Album Or Tape.
It's all automated. The only decision you need to make is if you want to have your file separated by tracks or by 2-20 equally timed sections. For 99% of us, we'll use the separated by tracks option. But if you have a long speech or a book that's not broken into chapters, use the sections option.

The Track Separation isn't like any other track separator I've ever used. It does it SPLAT, all at once. In just a few seconds, you'll see all your tracks listed for you as you can see above.

But if you want to play with your tracks, you're not locked out. You can adjust, add or subtract tracks. Mostly you won't need to, but let's see how to do it.


See Your Tracks Big - You're Not Locked Out. You Can Adjust, Add & Subtract Tracks.
Want to see, play and adjust your tracks? No problem. You're never locked out. Below I'll show you how to move or adjust a track, add a track, remove a track and more. Normally you don't need to, but you'll never be locked out.

And wherever you move a track in the Visual Editor, all of its time information will be automatically updated in the main interface. You can even move track markers over other tracks and the Holy Grail will recalculate it all instantly for you.

Note: When you open the Visual Editor, it will open in Full-Screen Mode so you can clearly see the tracks. Wait till you zoom in and see how easy it is.


Visual Editor Buttons & Boxes Explained.
So many buttons. But I've tried to provide you with every single automated option so you can do anything you want and some things you may not have even thought about. Everything is pretty much self-explanatory and I'll show you how to use each button in detail below.

But, the 1st button Hide Me, closes the visual interface without losing anything on it. Or if you have dual monitors like I do, you can leave it open while you use the main interface. Just a fun extra. And there are 3 Play buttons. 1 plays the entire file, that's pretty normal.

The 2nd is like Preview in your car, it plays the beginning of each track till you click it again and it jumps to the next track. Very cool. And Finally the 3rd button, you have to check the box named "Select Option" and then it will play wherever your cursor is located or any area you've highlighted on the screen.

OK let's explore.


Splat - Your Tracks Explored - Perfect, Perfect, Perfect.
Forget 1 track at a time. The Holy Grail separates all your tracks - SPLAT- automatically when you load your file. You don't have to do anything. Mostly you can just open the Visual Editor and check them out. But if you do want to change anything, it's easy as pie.

The visual editor is actually the visual waveform version of the list of tracks and times that you see on the main interface. And anything you change here, instantly and automatically changes there too. It's really, well, the Holy Grail.


3 Easy Ways To Play/Examine Your Tracks/Music.
It's the Holy Grail. It does everything. You can play your whole file from the beginning. Like in your car you can jump from track to track with just a Click, and you can play anywhere the cursor is or any part that's highlighted. It's all easy and it's meant to make it super easy for you to check to see that the Grail has created your tracks perfectly. Or you can just enjoy your tracks. And if your results are like mine, you sure won't find many tracks that the Grail missed. It's amazing how good it really is.


It's A Trick.
Let's Grab -Just The Tracks- And Nothing Else.
Here's the trick. If you just drag your mouse down the columns, not only will you get the column you want, but you'll also get all the other columns in a table. In this case there's an album number before and a time after. Having these won't hurt anything, but I'm into perfection.

OK so highlight just the 1st title. Then hold down the Control Key and drag down in the column you want. If you can't drag, try clicking as you go down each row. Either way, using Firefox as your browser, you'll capture just the list of titles. Then hold down Control again, and this type hit the C key. That puts everything highlighted into the Windows Clipboard and directly into the Holy Grail Namer.

Note: I show you how to download Firefox below, it's free and you really should have it. Here's how to get Firefox for free.


Plus, I show you how to do this with Internet Explorer too, with a few extra steps.
If you only want to use Internet Explorer Click Here to see how.

But be sure to come back here because this is just a side-trip


And Now You See The Tracks Named - Zap.
Please try this yourself. I know I went into a lot of detail, but it will really take you just a few seconds. And it's even faster if you grab tracks for 4-5 albums at a time. Once you get started, it's so much faster than typing all the track names. Oh, I won't even consider doing all that work. I type 90 words a minute and this is still so very much faster.

And remember, as long as you've used Control/ C to copy the names, you don't even need to paste them into the program. They go there automatically. Of course, you can copy and use the Control/V to paste in if you like, but I've saved you that step to make life super easy.


Creating MP3s For Your PC, iPhone, iPod, iTunes, & Any MP3 Player. - Drew's Favorite Part -
Talk about Cool. This is the most exciting part, short of the automatic track separation. Well, maybe even better. Let's explore turning our tracks into MP3 files. Since I have over 5000 tracks in my iPhone and I can listen to every song I own, everywhere I am, I'm more sold on digital than ever before.

Just Click the MP3 Save Button.

You'll get a dialog box asking for a folder. In this case, just create a master folder to hold working files. I'd call it MP3 copies or anything like that. There's no such thing as a master folder. I'm just talking about creating a folder to hold all the MP3 files you convert.

Then the program will display our new MP3 Tagging Screen. Normally you'd have to tag each track separately. But not with the Holy Grail. Enter the Artist and Album names. And if you like, add the year and the Genre. You don't need to but the year is on the album and the Genre is just the type of music. Then Click add to add the picture you downloaded.

Oh and here's what's really neat. If you are only tagging side 1 of the album, the info will stay there if you do side 2 next. So, you do the work once and nothing more to do. It's very, very cool.

Then Click OK at the bottom right and 1st you'll see status screens showing that the tracks are being converted to MP3s, then you'll see a screen that shows that the tags are being added, even the picture.

And, when all that's done, you'll get an alert asking if you're finished and if you want to leave all your beautifully tagged MP3 tracks in the folder or do you want them prepared for iTunes.

Say yes, to the iTunes prompt (and if if you're like me, you might want to open the folder to watch) and instantly you'll see the tracks disappear from the master folder into an Album folder called Sing Out, (the album name) and then that folder is put in a folder called Limeliters. This is what you'll find if you explore your iTunes Library.

And there's still more. If this was side one of Sing Out, when you copy side 2, the tracks will be added to the Sing Out Album folder which is inside the Limeliters folder. And if you copy another Limeliters album, the album will be in a new folder, which will be inside of the Limeliters folder. So everything is organized for you automatically. It's beyond awesome.

And look at the tracks. You'll see the album image and all the tags. It's never been better than this. And did I mention they sound great too?


Make Audio CDs That Play Anywhere.
If you want to make audio CDs like you buy in the store, first Save Wav files. Then after you do that, click on the CD Writer's button and Choose CD Audio Writer. It will open and be fully loaded with whatever tracks you have in the Holy Grail. Plus you can add any additional tracks that you've copied to the CD as well. So you can have just the tracks you want from all the records or tapes you've copied.

Note: I'm not sure why, but on some PCs as the audio CD is being written, the buffer status bar fills but you don't see any progress until the CD is fully written. It works fine. Just the progress bar doesn't seem to want to play along. Don't worry. Oh and remember, for any CD written on a PC from our burner or any burning program, always choose the slowest burn speed you can so it will work anywhere. There's a burn speed control in the upper left of the Burner Interface.

Easy Recording - You Can Do This.
It's so much easier than it was in the old days,recording with cassettes. You don't have to worry about the needle drop or timing or anything. Our system will automatically discard all the blank at the beginning and end of your recordings when you make tracks. Digital is so much easier than in the old days.

Just click Record to record, Play to play and Stop to stop. We even have a Record Wizard to let you do a test and set your levels. It couldn't be easier.


Play & Record Movement Buttons In The Editor. What Do They Do?

Here's A Quick Summary Of The Record & Movement Buttons.

Set Left moves the cursor to the extreme beginning of the file. It's always been hard to get to the very beginning or end of a file in an editor. Now it's not.

Scan Play (Reverse) moves the cursor 5 seconds back in the file DURING PLAY ONLY. Save hours by using forward and reverse scan to quickly scan through whatever is loaded in the editor to get to just where you want to go FAST.

Play Plays the loaded file in the editor.

Scan Play (Forward) moves the cursor 5 seconds forward in the file DURING PLAY ONLY. Save hours by using forward and reverse scan to quickly scan through whatever is loaded in the editor to get to just where you want to go FAST.

Play/Record Pause pauses the editor both during play and record. To resume play, click the pause button again. To resume record, click the record button. Now in record you can pause and start recording again without having to stop, save and start a new recording.

Stop stops all action in the editor. Set Right, moves the cursor to the extreme end of the loaded file.

Loop Play plays the loaded file or a selection over and over again with no pause at all. This is great for backgrounds or any time you need music or effects to play over and over again without any pause at all.

Record records whatever the inputs are set to. .

Timed Record Launches an interface that lets you set a timer to stop playing in any number of minutes you choose. This is the key to no baby-sitting recording. Now you can just choose how long you want to record and have the Editor stop automatically. You'll save hours and you won't have to sit and monitor as you copy LPs and cassettes or record Internet broadcasts.

Set Right moves the cursor to the extreme end of the file. It's always been hard to get to the very beginning or end of a file in an editor. Now it's not.

No Wasted Time Baby-Sitting Your Recordings. Now, It's All Automatic.
.
Don't sit there and monitor your recordings, unless you want to. You don't have to worry about the end of the record or the end of a tape. Just set the Recording Length Timer and relax. If you get a phone call, or get distracted or busy, the recorder will stop automatically for you, no problem.

This is big. It's groundbreaking. It's going to take the hassle out of recording. We've just added a Set and Forget Timer to the New Wave Editor Pro. Why do you need it? Now you don't have to baby-sit your recordings. Most LPs are about 20 minutes per side. Cassettes are 30, 45 or 60 minutes per side.

Just choose a time a few minutes longer than the side of your record or cassette. Click Timed Start, then start your LP or tape and go do something else.

You no longer have to keep an eye on when your recording will be finished. Now you can simply come back any time. Save your file. Separate your tracks. Edit out talking. Or, do whatever you want to do with your music.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Intro & Exit Blank Space Is Deleted Automatically. Unlike using a cassette deck you don't have to sync the start of the recorder with the needle drop or cassette start. Just leisurely start the recorder and then start your turntable or cassette deck. Same when you're done. Don't go flying across the room to stop the recorder.

Why NOT? Well when you use my Track Tracker to separate your tracks, it AUTOMATICALLY discards all the blank at the beginning and end of your recording. Welcome to 21st century digital recording.

Now you can concentrate on your music, not the act of recording. It's all automated for you.

I've never seen a Length Timer incorporated into a Wave Editor before. This is a revolutionary improvement that will really free you to record while you do other things.

It truly is a mega-time saver for all of us. Now you can convert all your Records, Tapes and Internet Radio easily and effortlessly without baby-sitting the recording any more.

More Timed Recording While You Are At Work or Asleep. - Like A VCR/DVR For Sound.
Don't miss those special shows on the Internet, or playing on anything connected to your computer. I've added a separated special recorder so that now you can set a scheduled timer to record that broadcast you don't want to miss totally automatically. It will start and stop on its own.

This is a one event timed recorder we've added to let you capture those great shows you'd miss while you're at work or asleep.

And you can connect an AM or FM radio to the DAK Interface Mixer and capture those shows too. Think of it as a one event VCR/DVR for sound. Now you've got an instantly available recorder so you won't miss those special shows any more. Then you can listen to it later on your computer or burn a CD, or put it in your iPod or other MP3 player and take it with you.

Track Tracker - The Really Big DAK Difference.
The Tracker Separates Your Songs Like Magic.
OK, it's a fact.
You need to separate the records and cassettes you copy into tracks.


What that means is that each song, movement or chapter really needs to be a separate individual digital file. You see there's no fast forward or rewind on CDs, so you jump from song to song, movement to movement or chapter to chapter.

Plus, you make tracks so you're just one click away from keeping the tracks you want and deleting the ones you don't. Plus, you'll make CDs and MP3s with just the tracks you want in just the order you want them.

The CDs you make with DAK's system will be just like the CDs you buy in the store with programming and everything, except they will have the tracks you want in the order you want them.

Here's What's Bad In Other Systems
Most people don't know about the tracks, so if you get an all in one copier, either you get no tracks at all, or you have to sit and stop recording at the end of each song and start again. If you miss one you're dead. It's really incredibly time consuming and not reliable.

There are software programs where you have to sit and listen for the tracks and click a track button to make a new track as you record. They are just about like all in one and require you to monitor everything every single second. God forbid, you miss a track, you really need to start over.

There are silence sensing programs that listen for the gaps between tracks on your records or cassettes. We have one too, but we only recommend using it for Internet recording where there is no noise like hiss or record pops to stop the sensor from seeing the tracks. We find that at best you get 70% of the tracks separated, then what do you do with the ones that didn't get separated or the ones where the track was separated during the actual music because there was a quiet part that the program mistook for a track so you end up with 2 tracks for one song?

Finally there's the old standard. You use an editor and highlight each track visually and then do a File/Save As and give it a name and a place to be stored. This works great but takes about an hour or so per album. Of course DAK's editor does this great too. But it's not the best or fastest, easiest way to separate your tracks.

Here's What's Really Good With DAK's Track Tracker System.
OK, forget spending an hour, 1/2 hour or even 5 minutes. The DAK Track Tracker gives you 1st time every time perfect track separations in about 2 minutes. It's super easy. It works 1st time every time and you'll never go back to manual track creating again.

All you do is zoom in, click wherever you want a track. Then let the Tracker do its thing. The whole process takes just about 2 minutes like I said and you'll have perfectly separated, numbered tracks ready to go. See how easy it is in the movie I've put right here.

See The Track Tracker Movie. It plays right on your Web page.

Got An iPod or MP3 Player? Or Need Fast Mass Conversions? Want To Apply Effects or Make All Your Tracks The Same Volume?
If you're just converting LPs and cassettes to CD, you may never actually need the Batch Transformer. But this powerful super easy to use program (don't let all the boxes intimidate you) can make quick work of any group of files you want to convert or change. Let's explore what you can do now with just a click, to 5 tracks, 10 tracks or 100s of tracks at once. That's why it's called a batch transformer. It converts lots of tracks at once for you.

Arrow 1.) So you've made a bunch of Wav files. Just load them in the Batch Transformer, choose MP3 and any bitrate you like and with one click they will be converted to MP3s. Do 10 or 100, it's all automatic.

Arrow 2.) If you're making MP3s for your iPod or other MP3 player or just to keep on your computer, you'll want to have the MP3 tags like Artist, Album, year and Genre tagged to all your MP3s. Now with DAK's Batch Transformer, just enter the info once and it will add it to all the tracks from the record in seconds. Wow, this is so cool.

Arrow 3 & 3a.) OK if you're a power user, you are going to love the batch effects applier. Just choose what effects you want to apply. You can choose one, several or lots all at the same time. Then in 3a, you can choose how much of each effect you want to apply to your files. You can use a different amount for each type of effect if you like. Or just use the default for any or all. It's super easy to do.

Important Note About The Volume Of Your Tracks. Normalize is one of the powerful effect functions you can use on your tracks. What this does is make all the volume levels the same for all the tracks you load. When you make CDs or MP3 collections of tracks from several sources they might not be at the exact same volume level.

Just run them through the Normalizer and all the tracks you run through will be set to about the same volume so you won't be having to turn them up or down. I find that the Irish Rovers (one of my favorite groups) is almost always much louder than the Limeliters (my favorite group) or Peter Paul and Mary or the Kingston Trio. Now they're not. It's just that simple.

Arrow 4.) Same as for effects, you can batch filter a few files or hundreds all at the same time.

Arrow 5.) If you are a church or business, Append is for you. You can add an intro or exit to hundreds of tracks at once. So if you want the same music or introduction or the same ending for all your tracks, DAK's Batch converter will add it to the files all at one time. It can also mix a background behind the track as well. So you can add music, subliminal sounds or just about anything.

Arrow 6.) Rename will strip off whatever file names you have now and let you add a prefix plus it will sequentially number the loaded tracks. This is something you might want to use with pictures from a trip, or audio files or really just about any type of file.

The Batch Transformer will save you hours of effort and perform mass tasks that had to have been done manually in the past, or couldn't have been done at all.
There's Never Been Anything Like It.
Drew's Send eMail Thingy. You'll Use This The Most.
Email Songs, Audio Letters, Ringtones & Much More.

OK this is my favorite new toy. Wait till you start using my all new eMail Thingy. It's slicker than slick. You'll see the very first time you use it just how fast, easy and fun it is to use. From a whole song to just a few measures, a few words or a whole speech. If it's in the editor, you can send it instantly.

As long as you have a local email address, not a webmail email like Hotmail or Gmail, (Use one of the ones that you got for free from your ISP along with your Internet connection if you normally don't use one on your computer. If you do use one on your computer, use the one you already use.) now you can effortlessly send anything loaded in the editor by email, well to anyone, FAST. And you don't even need an email program on your computer to send your audio eMails. My new eMail Thingy does it all in Win 7, Vista and XP.

What if you want to send a few bars of a song? No problem. Highlight what you want to send. Click Trim, then click the eMail Thingy Icon.

How about an audio email using your voice? What a great way to share emotion with friends and family, or to give clarification for business. No problem. Just plug in your Mic, record whatever you like in the editor and click my eMail Thingy icon. Will you send Birthday or Anniversary greetings? Will you tell a story? Will you tell a friend how to do something? With my eMail Thingy, it's easy.

Working with a group and want to share? No problem. With my new eMail Thingy, you'll be sending the fastest best audio emails ever, using your own email address, right out of the editor.

There's nothing special you need to do. It's all automatic. As long as you have a local email address, (you don't even have to have it setup on your computer) you're all set. If you only have Hotmail, Gmail or one of the webmails that you have to go onto the Internet and sign in to, then this won't work. But you normally get a bunch of free email addresses with your Internet service. Use one of those, or use the one you use all the time. One email address is all you need.

OK, here's all you do.

Arrow 1.) It's easy. Load whatever you want to send in the editor. It can be something you've already recorded. You can record it now. You can edit it. You can cut it. You can Trim it, or do anything you like. Then, just Click the eMail Thingy Icon when you're ready.

Arrow 2.)
Type In Your eMail address.
Note Only Do It Once: Once you type it in, my eMail Thingy will remember it for you so you don't even have to type it each time.

Arrow 3.) Type In the person's email address that you want to send your audio masterpiece to.
Note Send To Lots Of People: Want to send it to 5 people? No problem. Just type in each email address separated by a semicolon and you can send them all at once.

Arrow 4) Type a subject for your email, or just leave the Audio Email Attached that will populate the Subject Line automatically. You can leave it, change it or do anything you like.

Arrow 5) Type a written message if you like. Not required, but it's usually a good idea to tell people what you're sending them and maybe why.

Arrow 6) Click Send. My eMail Thingy will do the rest for you.

OK of course you can open your regular email program and attach an audio file. But where's the fun in that? And it's a lot more steps. You have to actually save what you want to send in a file. Then open your email program. Then find where you saved your file and attach it. My eMail Thingy will do all that for you. It's a real time saver and it's a blast to use.

In short, with 'Drew's eMail Thingy', you'll send out lots of audio emails to lots of people where it was entirely too much of a hassle to do before.


Note Anyone Can Play Your Audio eMails: Oh, and all the recipient of your audio eMail has to do is click on the attachment and Windows Media Player or their default music player will play it for them. That's it. It's totally hassle free.

DAK Effects Just Got Better & Faster Instant Preview Too. Check This Out.
What if you'd like to add some echo? Maybe you want to increase the volume of a track, add drama by using the expander or cut the dynamic range with the compressor? Or you can add chorus and make yourself sound like you're a choir or add delay or any of the effects you see above. It's all easy. But just having effects in an editor doesn't make them easy to use.

Now you can truly get the full value of DAK's digital effects like never before. Yes, I'm excited, let me tell you why. In the past, with most good editors you had access to some or even many effects.

But check this out. First, with other editors, you'd have to choose the effect, maybe even the amount of the effect, usually with Presets so you had only a few choices as to how much of each effect you wanted to have. Well No More. I've added continuously variable sliders so you can get just the amount of any effect you want in 1% increments without having to settle for the amount in a preset the programmer thought you might want to have.

Plus, we've also added Preview to the effect. Just click Play and you'll hear the amount of the effect you've chosen. If you don't like it, just move the slider and Click Play again.

Now you'll get the exact perfect 1% resolution of the effect you want. No more guessing. No more wasted hours.

No more loading and unloading and undoing. Just Click Play and you're set. Then Click Apply only when you're totally thrilled with the micromatic precision that you've been able to achieve with absolutely no hassle or wasted time at all.

Now you won't have to compromise between how perfect you want your music to be and how much time you have to waste. Now it's super easy. Now it's super fast. And frankly if I look in my crystal ball, I don't see any other improvement that can be made for applying effects and filters that is better, faster or more professional than this one is.

It really is just this easy to edit. You'll have a ball. I took an old song called Tell Laura I Love Her and edited out all the unhappy parts (if you know the song you'll know) and played it for my daughter-in-law, Laura, as a present. We had a ball.

Convert 78 RPM Records On Your 45 RPM Turntable Like Magic.

If you're like me, you have a bunch of 78s that are just sitting around. And your really good turntable doesn't play 78s. So, until now, you've no way to copy them to CDs let alone listen to them at all.

But what about the Needle? You can use DAK's standard elliptical diamond stylus to play the 78s. You CAN NOT use a 78 stylus on LPs as it would ruin the LP. If you have more than about 25 78s, we do have a 78RPM Cartridge that pops onto our PRO DJ turntable. But fewer than that, just use the stylus we ship and you'll get flawless copies.

OK, here's all you do. Get out your 78 RPM records. And put one on your turntable.

Select 45 RPM and you're set.

Click the Record Button on the Wave Editor/Recorder and then put the needle in the groove.

It's An All New Powerful Studio PRO
3 Editors Perfectly Synced. - Mix Stereo Tracks, Sing Along, Speed UP, Slow Down. Mix Like Never Before.
Now you really can get the perfection you want through editing. Need a trumpet or a piano or a harp? No problem. Add a MIDI track and you can have a trumpet fanfare or anything you like. And today, it's really hard to tell the difference between real people played music and the MIDI sounds that are already part of your computer.

(I've added a midi composer to our 6.1 Editor so you can add just about any instrument you like to your music, but that's another tutorial. However, the new DAK Super Mixer is where you can add them in, fast and easy.)

Anyway, so why am I sharing all this? Well, welcome to the new DAK Super Mixer Recorder. This is my answer to today's recording studios. With DAK's new Super Mixer, you can mix tracks, alter the speed, add in additional tracks and frankly do most of what I want to do in one of today's newest recording studios.

So if you're doing narrations, add a trumpet fanfare. If you sing, add your voice, over and over again to make yourself into a duet, trio or even a whole choir. It's amazing what you can easily do with your PC. And make no mistake. Your PC is more than capable of making broadcast quality recordings.

That's simply the wonder of today's technology, nothing to do with DAK. But now you can record, mix and create wonders that would have taken multi-track recorders, whole orchestras and tons of us audio editing guys with our splicing blocks weeks to do.

Now we can all do much more, thousands of times faster and honestly it's easy to get it right, because you see and hear it as you do it. And just hit Undo and do it again if the first time it's not the great hit you want it to be. And that's the key to the all new DAK Super Mixer and Recorder.

Now you can create your music the way you want it. And easily and quickly do your own post production with your very own Multitrack recorder.

This is the main screen. In reality the DAK super mixer is 3 Wav & MP3 Editors built into one easy to control interface so that you can mix various sounds, music or spoken word or both and get effects you could never do without the Multitrack recording and mixing capability.

Arrows 1.) Here I'm just showing you the 3 completely separate 100% individually controllable editors. Each is complete and you can play, record, edit, select, and frankly, just about anything you might ever want to do in a recording editor.

Arrow 2.) Adjust the Pitch Or Key of your music in real time while it plays. Now you can mix music that WAS in a different key. Now you can sing along.

Arrow 3.) Adjust the Tempo or Beat of the music without changing the key or pitch at all. You can do this in real time. Now you can sync tracks that didn't quite sync before. Now if you have a need for a song to be a few seconds shorter or longer, you can adjust it so it's just the length of the routine you need.

Arrow 4.) Here's where you can control all 3 Editors at once. You can play all 3 or just play 2. It's up to you. You can play what you've recorded and if it's not in perfect sync, use DAK's new Nudge Tool. It's in effects. And I've written a whole section about it for you. The Nudge tool gives you the power to sync tracks, even when they're not.

Arrow 5.) This is where you call up the Super Mixer's main mixing panel. This is where you can choose to mix 1 or 2 of the decks into a 3rd or any combination with any of the decks. It's super powerful and you can even control the volume of the mix. This is a digital internal mix that does not require the stereo mix feature in your sound card.

Arrow 6.) Record Real Time Playback is unique to DAK. What it does, using Stereo Mix again, is let you play 1 to 3 decks. As they play it makes a real time recording. And you can adjust the pitch and tempo and or volume in real time while it records. And you'll get a recorded copy of whatever you've played with whatever changes you've made. This is great if for example you want to change the tempo on part of a file, or combine 2 or 3 decks while you alter the pitch or tempo. It's super useful and super easy to use.


Wow, Can You Mix Or What? 1, 2 or all 3 Decks.
You Even Control The Relative Volume Of The Mix.

This is where it all happens. Once you have the editors loaded, you can digitally mix any combination of the 3 editors and even control the volume of the mix itself. This is the main super power of the Super Mixer. With just a few clicks you can mix anything you can load. And since it's digital, it's 100% clean and perfect.
Look what you can do.

Arrows 1.) This gives you the power to choose which of the 3 editors you want to mix into. What does that mean? Well if you have files in 1 and 2, maybe you want to mix them into 3. And if you also have a file in 3, then you can mix editors 1 and 2 into the file that's already loaded in 3 and even control the volume.

Arrows 2.) OK so you've decided which editor to mix into. Now all you need to decide is if you want to Mix in 1 or both of the other two editors. It's up to you. Remember there are 3 editors. You're going to mix into one of them. All you need to decide is if you want to mix 1 or 2 of the editors into it.

Arrow 3.) So when you mix into the master editor (where the actual mix will end up) how do you want to set the volume? Normally you might not need to adjust this at all. But if you want the master to be louder or softer than the files you are mixing in, this is the place to do it.

Arrow 4.) The time has come. Hit Mix'em and it will instantly be done. Now just play the results. If you don't love them, no problem, you can change anything and do it again.

And that's all there is to using the Main Master Mixer in DAK's all new Super Mixer Recorder.


Oh, Can You Give Me A Nudge?
Let's Sync Up. PRO Studio Mixing For Perfect Sync.
Super Nudge Animated So You Can See What It Does.

Here is an animation so you can see what nudge actually does. It moves a track that's not in sync to the right so it is in sync with the others. You can move it a few milliseconds to sync it up with the other tracks fast and easy.

How Many Colors In Joseph's
Coat Of Many Colors?
How Can You Listen To A Speech In 1/2 The time?
Speed Listening - Transcribing- Changing Key
Digital makes all things possible. If you want to transcribe some lyrics from a song or transcribe a speech, lecture or you name it, choose DAK's new Stretch feature in the editor.

You'll slow down the talking or singing as much as you want WITHOUT CHANGING THE PITCH. So, if you want to transcribe the lyrics from a song, this makes it super easy. My wife wanted to make a list of the colors in Joseph's Coat after we saw the musical. This made it easy.

We saw the Irish Rovers last month and they have a great song called 3 Jolly Rogues (See my picture). In it they drink about a dozen different types of liquor. It's kind of like the 12 days of Christmas with different drinks. We'll, we made short work of that list too. Now we've shared the list with our kids.

And you'll make short work of anything you want or need to transcribe, whether it's a speech, a song, a lecture or testimony if you're a court reporter. Now it's easy.

Speed it up too. What if you want to listen to a speech but you don't want to spend all the time it would take. It's a fact that you actually comprehend better if you speed it up because your mind doesn't wander when speech is faster.

Speaking is generally slow. Anyway, just slide the slider to make anyone speak faster and you can listen in the editor or save it as a wav or MP3 file and take it with you. It's all easy and you'll not only save hours, but frankly be able to learn things you simply didn't have time for before.

And fast or slow, the pitch/key will stay the same so you'll have perfect intelligibility regardless of whether you go fast or slow. Stretch Plus and Minus are very powerful parts of the DAK Wav and MP3 Editor Pro.

Oh and just so you know, there is also stretch with frequency change so you can adjust the key or pitch of the music if you like. Then you can sing along or mix music that 'was' in different keys. It's all in our powerful new editor.

DAK's NEW PLAYLIST MANAGER
PRESERVE TRACK ORDER WONDER

The problem. Windows sorts all the tracks on your computer, in your MP3 player and when your burn CDs alphabetically.
That's not the order you want for your musicals, symphonies or any of your tracks to be in. For a musical, you want the overture as the first track.
For a symphony, you want the first movement. And for your favorite, folk, jazz or rock songs, you want your tracks in the order they were in on the CDs, LPs or cassettes.

Till now, this was an unfixable Windows problem. Now, when you EITHER rip a CD or open a group of files from your hard disk, the Preserve Track Tool will assign a number prefix in front of the track name so that even when Windows sorts it, your track will stay in perfect order.
It looks like this (see left arrow in picture above):

01My Track Name
02My Track Name.

But that's not all. If you have tracks from different albums you can tell the Preserve Track Tool to assign a common Prefix so all the tracks stay not only in track order, but with the album they belong to like this:

FirstAlbum 01Track Name
FirstAlbum 02Track Name
SecondAlbum 01Track Name
SecondAlbum 02Track Name

DAK puts your tracks in perfect order and keeps them there in your computer, when you copy your tracks to MP3 players and when you burn CDs. This is a major new breakthrough in Digital music enjoyment.

Preserve Track Order In Action

 
Here's a real life EXAMPLE you can do yourself of Windows Sorting that ruins your enjoyment of the music. I took my copy of Phantom Of The Opera and Ripped it to my computer. What you see on the left is the actual ripped results that I got and you would get too. As you can see the Overture came out as track 7.
IT'S THE SAME WHEN YOU COPY LPs, CASSETTES or anything onto your computer. Windows by default will put it in alphabetical order AND THERE'S NO SOLUTION that I've found till now.
On the right, you'll see DAK's Preserved Track Order in Action. It adds a small numerical prefix in front of the name that tricks Windows into keeping your tracks in the exact order that you want them.
It's simple. It's fast and you can have it added EITHER when you rip CDs, or use the Playlist Manager to PERMANENTLY CREATE TRACK ORDER that will never change. It's a whole new world of finally having your music stay in the order it's supposed to be in from now on.

Print Tracks & Playlists Instantly.

This is big. Sure using your burner software you can often print a track list when you burn a CD. But there's been almost no way to print a track list for the tracks you keep on your computer or load into an MP3 player.
And, with several hundred tracks going into an MP3 player these days, how will you ever know what you have?
Now just load the tracks in the Playlist Manager. There's nothing special to do. If the tracks are on your computer, you can load any MP3 or Wav files.
Anyway Click Print and you'll instantly have the entire list in Window's Notepad. Then just click Notepad Print for a printed list, or save the file and you can import the text file into any fancy label printing program you might have. Any good one does have import.
You'll really appreciate the printed tracks. I carry the printed track lists in my car for my 12-disc changer and in my briefcase for my MP3 player.

Plus it's great to have on my computer so I can instantly search it to see where a particular song is located. This is a great tool.

Tune Library Automated Jukebox.
Like Channel Surfing ON TV, Now Surf All Your Tunes.
Now you're just a click away from listening to any tune you own. Load them in the Tune Library and play them, sort them, enjoy them. Now you'll have all your tracks at your instant control.

Here's what I love to do. I just surf from one track to another. No CDs to load. I take a track from the Limeliters, one from Oliver and one from Annie Get Your Gun.

Here's the point. When you load CDs, you can play any track on the CD with just a click. But when you open the DAK Tune Library Jukebox, you can have all your tracks that you own ready to 'channel surf'. It really is literally every track you own ready to play with just a few clicks.

This is AWESOME.

I Wish I had Recorded That Song That Already Played On The Internet -
Now You Have.
 
 

New technology gives you the power to capture Internet (or other) audio that's already been played. No more having to say I Wish I could have recorded that. Now you actually have recorded it.

There's never been anything like my newest invention, Drew's I wish recorder, for recording from the Internet or any signal coming into your computer.

What if you could grab a recording of what's ALREADY BEEN PLAYED? Wow, then you wouldn't have to say I wish I could have recorded that Song, that Phone Number, that Recipe or whatever you just heard that's ALREADY BEEN PLAYED.

OK here's how my new I Wish Recorder works. It continuously records in the background 24/7 if you like, a 5-minute buffered recording of what you've been listening to. So it doesn't build up big files or keep using up RAM use on your computer.

The I Wish Recorder just keeps recording the last 5 minutes of what you've heard and continuously discards anything beyond the 5 minutes. Then if you hear something that you want to keep, just click the Keep Button and the last 5 minutes of what you've heard is saved to your hard drive. It's never been done because there's never been a recorder that discards anything beyond 5-minutes before.

Plus There's More. We're all busy. So, let's say that a great song is playing. You want it, but it's not finished yet. You can click the +3 Button. Then the I Wish Recorder, not only records the last 5 minutes you've ALREADY HEARD, but also keeps recording for 3 more minutes into the future so you'll save a total of 8 minutes and that way you don't have to actually wait for a song to end before saving it. Very neat.

Test Your System, Speakers & Your Ears? Test It And You'll Know.
OK, this isn't a medical hearing test. But how much of your music do you hear?
Test it and you'll know. How good is your equipment, are your speakers, is your room and are your ears? Test them all now!

Now you can instantly and effortlessly Test it for yourself.

Do those computer speakers really reproduce 30Hz? Test Them! We'll I think you'll be shocked to find that many computer speakers don't even reproduce 80Hz. Find out! That's why so many DAKonians connect their computers to their stereo to get the really great sound.

And let's talk high frequencies. Sure we are supposed to hear to 20,000hz. But, again, do your computer speakers even handle 10,000hz, let alone 14,000hz or maybe even 16,000hz? Test them! Now you'll know.

I can pretty much guarantee that your computer does, it's just the amps and speakers and well if you're over 50 you aren't going to be hearing those highs so well anymore either. (This is a good time to use the DAK EQ to boost those frequencies, more later.) But now you'll have a professional test tone generator so you'll know. It's easy. It's fast. Find out for sure. So Test It Now!

I show you how to:
1.) Test your equipment,
2.) Test your speakers and
3.) Test your room.
4.) Plus see which frequencies you hear in your room and with headphones too.

MP3 USB Recorder - Now You Can Hear WHILE You Record With DAK's USB Adapter Or Your USB Turntable.
It's a problem. A USB turntable or our USB audio adapter overrides your sound card and takes over the audio of your computer. That's great for recording, but it's not linked to your sound card's connection to your speakers, so while you can record flawlessly, you can't hear while you record which is a bummer. That's one of the major shortcomings of all the USB turntables I've tested.

So till now, we've made it possible to monitor what you record by plugging headphones or computer speakers into the front of the DAK Mixer Interface. And that works great.

But now, through some very innovative programming what we are doing is using a cute little computer trick called Playthrough to overcome the USB sound card shortcoming. It's really a very neat programming trick or workaround, but what we do is capture the signal as we record and concurrently send a copy of it to your normal sound card so you can hear it.

It works perfectly. It has no effect on your recording, or anything else, but you can hear as you record so no headphones or speakers need to be attached to our mixer.

Plus this is one really neat recorder. It uses 2 of our new displays. The peak Reading VUs for record and the Spectrum Display for playback. So while it really doesn't matter to anyone but me, it's a treat to watch as you record.

Oh, and you can use this recorder and its no baby-sitting timed record for recording any inputs into your computer or from the Internet too. Just don't click on the Playthrough Button if you're not recording from USB. It's a very powerful recorder.

Song Stalker Internet Recorder
Silence Seeking Program
This is the Holy Grail of Internet recording. Get separated tracks as you actually record. And the Song Stalker is the best of the best I've seen. As you record and as the Song Stalker sees the silence between tracks, it automatically closes each track it's recording and begins a new track.

The Song Stalker is an Internet Recording Program. For records and cassettes like any other silence sensing recorder clicks, scratches and hiss make the Track Tracker above the better choice. But for digital Internet recording the Song Stalker shines.

Plus the Song Stalker will automatically save your tracks in the folder of your choice and not only does the Song Stalker automatically number the tracks for you, but it lets you assign a prefix name so you'll easily and effortlessly know what you've recorded and where it is. It's actually a separate program that's now built into new DAK Wave & MP3 Editor/Recorder Pro.
The Song Stalker continuously monitors the Noise Floor of your music and looks for the silence that connotes a track separation. When it finds the silence,

It creates a New Track.
It Names Your Track With a Prefix
And It Numbers your track for you.

It's like a robot that essentially presses a virtual stop button, names and numbers the track, clears the screen and starts recording a new track. Wow, it does a lot. And it does it all without you.

It's very sophisticated. But in short it looks for silence. It uses very sophisticated algorithms to determine what silence really is. And it does a really good job.

It often reaches a totally automatic success rate of 7 or 8 tracks out of 10. But have no fear. You can separate the few remaining tracks using the Wave Editor itself or the all new Track Tracker technology that's just been added to the DAK Wave & MP3 Editor/Recorder Pro.

Using the Song Stalker is super easy and super fast. And the recordings will be flawless digital copies of whatever you want to copy.

Rip CDs To Your Hard Drive - With 'Benefits'
DAK's CD Ripper is special. It's like the line, "friendship with benefits". It does much more than just rip CDs. Why do you want to rip CDs to your hard drive?

With DAK's ripper you can rip CDs to your hard drive to edit them, make compilations with tracks you've copied from LPs and cassettes and much, much more. Many DAKonians need to change the speed, add a measure or take out a measure for dance or exercise routines or to use extracted melodies in your PowerPoint presentations and for many other reasons. With DAK's Editor, which you're getting with the system, you're not locked out of your music any longer.

Most modern CD Rippers will rip CDs to your hard drive and even name the tracks. No big deal. We add 2 big extras that are really worth having. If you're ripping to put tracks in your MP3 player, then you'll love the fact that the ripper can apply all the MP3 tags for most CDs. It's a great time saver to have all the tags added automatically for you.

And the big, big deal is 'Preserve Track Order' which is something I invented. Here's the problem. When you load anything in Windows it alphabetizes it. Then you'll find that the Overture is with the Os, not at the beginning. All the songs on a CD that were in one order on the CD, will be alphabetized on your computer. It's a big problem. But we have the only solution I've seen.

When you rip CDs using my Advanced Ripper (we give you a simple one too), or if you use the DAK playlist manager, we add a number ahead of the track name as we rip so that Windows can't mess with the order of your tracks ever again.

It's a perfect solution to a Windows Problem. Now you'll have the tracks you want in the order you want them from now on, on your computer, in your MP3 player or anywhere you take them.

DAK's Easy Audio CD Writer Program.

 
Your computer came with CD burner software. And it probably works fine. But, it's probably a general purpose program that does lots of things other than just burn flawless digital audio CD copies of your music.
Because it's made to do so many things, it's often hard to find the controls you need to actually burn audio CDs. You need to be sure to Finalize/Close your CDs and to lower the burn speed to one half if you are burning for older car, home and portable CD players.
I've made this CD burner close the discs automatically so you don't have to worry about it and I've put the speed control right up front.
And use our Playlist manager to set up the playlist order, then ours keeps the Preserve Track Order you selected when you ripped your CDs or used Preserve Track Order in the Playlist manager.
So add a track, a few tracks or all the tracks in a folder or from several folders. Move any track within the list anywhere you want. Remove any track. And combine Wave and MP3 files to burn your CDs. It's the easiest CD Burner software ever, because it does all the heavy lifting for you.

Burn CDs With NO PAUSES Between Tracks.
First Musical commandment. "Thou shall not kill the mood." And now gaps won't kill your musical mood any longer. It took me 2 years to pull this off.

No pause, no gap, no break CDs, are awesome for a lot of reasons
 
Some Beatles and Grateful Dead recordings had no breaks between tracks.
Live concert recordings have no breaks.
Your own mixes where you fade one song into the next song, crossfades, have no breaks.
Church ministry tapes have no breaks.
Motivational and spiritual tapes have no breaks.
Books and readings have no breaks.
Presentations have no breaks.


For all of these reasons and more, you want to have no breaks, pauses or gaps between your tracks. Our Track Trackers don't put in pauses, just breaks so now you can have no pause CDs from now on. But, you do want to have tracks because you can't fast forward or rewind a CD.

So, if you don't have tracks, you simply can't jump from place to place. Now you can have tacks with no audible pause or break at all. Plus this new CD Burner will also write the new CD Text so that if you have a compatible player you can actually see the album and track names as you've written them to CDs.


It's A Brand New Program To Unlock The 175 Instruments That Are Already Hidden In Your Computer.
Drew's Learn & Enjoy MIDI. You'll Be Astounded At
What You Can Do. -
Your 175 Hidden Instrument Orchestra

Did you know that you have a 175 instrument orchestra hidden right in your computer? It's true. You do.

Did you know you could play the trumpet, French horn, oboe, cello and more? Well you can. Would you be surprised to learn that some of the tracks in the music you hear on commercial CDs you buy in the store are actually generated by the same orchestra that's locked in your computer?

All 175 instruments are built right into the sound card in your computer. But most people just
You're going to have hours of fun creating your MIDI Masterpieces and years of enjoyment listening to the creations you've made.
don't know. Most people think you need to buy an expensive MIDI Keyboard to unlock the sounds. But with DAK's all new MIDI composer, all you need is my program and your mouse. If you've never tried playing with MIDI before, this is the program for you.

And even though you may have never known they were there, we really are going to unlock all 175 instruments with my new, easy to use, MIDI Composer. Now you can have the power that professional recording studios have to mix MIDI tracks right into live solo, duet and full orchestral performances. If you sing, now you can add a piano, string bass and more to accompany you

Here's A 4 second Example Of What You can do.

 

Now you can add a trumpet fanfare to a song you've just composed. You can add a cymbal crash. You can add a string ensemble and so much more.

Want a piano to accompany you? Want to add a beat? A Tambourine? A cowbell? How about an accordion or harmonica? Now it's easy and fast.

So What Is MIDI Anyway?
MIDI is short for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. It's a music industry standard protocol that lets MIDI instruments, sequencers and sequencer software (that's what the DAK MIDI composer is) play and record music composed of up to 175 instrument sounds.

You'd be amazed how much of the music you hear every day is written on and played by MIDI. What you hear on commercial CDs and live performances can be 100% MIDI or part live instruments and part MIDI.

You really do have a whole orchestra of sounds INDIVIDUALLY at your command. And just about every computer made can both create and play MIDI. You'll have hours of fun creating your MIDI masterpieces and years of enjoyment listening to the creations you've made.

MIDI is super easy to create. It's simple. It's intuitive. Think of it like a player piano roll that rather than playing just one instrument can reproduce the sounds of 175 orchestral instruments.

What I really like is that you have such easy and total control over each and every instrument you choose. You see each instrument separately. You control each separately so you're really not locked out of your music any more. Each instrument stays separate in the composer so you can adjust your creations instantly and easily.

It just takes a mouse click to actually change the instrument that's playing, the tempo of the music, the key of the music and so much more.

Oh, and one thing people like is that MIDI files are tiny. They are actually text files so an hour of MIDI music takes almost no room at all.

So, What Will You Do With MIDI?
Well, first, you're just going to have a blast playing with the easy to use interface. Punch out that song you have in your head. Change instruments. Change key. It's all just a click away. You'll be amazed when you hear a simple tune with harmony and so much more.

It's so easy and fast. And most of all it's fun.

But, most of all it's a serious musical composer that you can use in the studio, even if the studio is in your family room or bedroom. Now you can do what the pros do, easy and fast.

Do you have any sheet music? Just enter it in the composer and play it and hear it and enjoy it. You don't need a keyboard. It's all done with just your mouse and DAK's new MIDI composer.

You Star when you perform (and record). Be a duet, a trio or a whole choir. You can add and remove individual instruments at any time. So start out with a guitar and add a bass. Add some percussion. Change it fast and easy. Compose or play a concerto. You'll be amazed what you can do with this simple unlocked orchestra.

You can arrange your music easily and effortlessly. It's just a mouse click to change the tempo, transpose the key and do anything to the music you create.

But it's fast. There's nothing you need to do to get started. Just choose and instrument and click the interface to hear your notes.

OK, let's make some music.

I Show You A Few Tricks In The Tutorial
Drew's Trick To Making Quick Perfect Harmony.
OK, I play the Cello. I'm not much of a composer. But I love to do it and I get a tune in my head that I just have to get out. So, here's my quick trick for instant harmony.

Just write your notes. Heck it can be Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It doesn't have to be fancy. Anyway, all you do is copy the notes 1 or 2 octaves below and viola, instant harmony. Try it out. You'll be amazed at how rich your music can sound. Turn a tune into an orchestral chord.

That's it, that's the whole trick. It's just that simple. But it sure doesn't sound simple. Just wait till you hear the difference.

Arrow 1.) Just click in your notes.

Arrow 2.) Copy the notes one or two octaves lower and change your instrument. The 2C arrows are just to show you how to find the one octave lower note. It's not hard, just find the same letter with a lower number. Easy enough?


Arrow3.) Do the same thing again. Change your instrument and go down another octave. Play it back. It will blow you away.

Make MP3 CDs & Back Up Your Tracks Big Time On CD or 4.7 or 8 Gig DVDs.
Plus Blue-Ray Too.
I hope you're good about backing up the files on your computer. After all, it's all about the music. And, you don't want to lose yours. We've had an MP3 CD burner in the Editor for a year. But this one adds the latest powerful folder feature too.

You can burn folders of MP3 tracks to CD, organized by artist or album and then it's easy to navigate to the artist or album you want. 10 hours of tracks on a CD is great. But it's even better when each folder is easy to get to and organized like you want it. More and more car players support folders so I wanted to have this powerful new feature for you now too.

But backing up your tracks fast and easy is the thing. Our New CD Writer Advanced Program not only writes to CDs, but also 4 and 8 Gig DVDs and Blue-Ray too. Now you can put 4 Gigs on a 25 cent DVD or over 8 Gigs on a $1.25 8 Gig DVD.

Now you can make fast easy backups of your tracks hassle free. Just load then in DAK's new CD & DVD burner and you're all set. Oh, and we support the new Blue-Ray too, but those 25 Gig discs are still a bit rich for most of us.

My Green Arrows show that I've put 1114 MB of files with 3374 MB left to fill out of a total of 4488 MB on my DVD. Wow, CDs seem so outdated now.

Note: This Is The Complete System. If you came to our page from the Internet, we separate LPs, Cassettes & 78s onto 3 pages so you only have to read about only LPs only, Cassettes only, or only 78s only and not what you aren't interested in.

But we ship the exact same system. The only difference is if you include our PRO Disc jockey Turntable. You get all the same programs and tutorials regardless of which of our order numbers that you use when you order.

LPs & 45s To CDs DAK - # 20228
78s To CDs DAK - #2070
Cassettes To CDs DAK - 20418

All these systems are IDENTICAL to take care of all your needs.
Our systems are all you need to convert and restore LPs, 45s, 78s, Cassettes, 8Trk Tapes, Open Reel tapes and even record music from the Internet.
 
 
A Quick NOTE About My Pictures.
Some of the pictures aren't as sharp as I'd put in the print catalog. You see I have to cut back their file sizes or this page would never load (especially if you're on a dial up modem).
The technical side is that I'm shooting JPEGs at 80-100 percent quality and I cut them back to 50-60% and pretty much limit them to 600 pixels in width or less so that they'll fit on your monitor and load reasonably fast. In short, each picture is about 450,000 bytes when I shoot it and 20-40,000 bytes here on the page. A picture for the catalog is about 6,000,000 bytes.
I've created this page using separate tables for each picture so that you don't have to wait for everything to load in order to start looking. The picture captions will display first and then the pictures (usually starting at the top, but not always due to the way your computer interprets the web).
BUT HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE. I don't feel you can really know about a product unless the pictures are big and clear enough for you to really see (almost touch). Then you'll know what you're getting. So in my print catalogs the pictures can be sharper, but on the web I can show you a lot more angles, sides and parts of each product. I hope this helps.
If I ever forget to show you some part of the product that you want to see, eMail me at DrewKaplan@DAK.com and I'll do my best to add it to the page quickly.
