Micro-cassette - Digital audio

->> So I have a challenge here. I have a 39 year old Micro-Cassette tape that has a conversation on it that I want to pull off the old cassette tape and clean up on the computer to insert it into a funeral video.

So I question is this, seeing how the audio is already bad, how can I get this recorded the best to my laptop???

You might just need to rerecord it with open microphone(s) then clean it up.

->> 1) 1/8" TRS to 1/8" TRS cable running from the output of your micro-cassette player in the mic input of your laptop.

2) Garage Band or Audacity to record the stream as a digital file and edit same. Both have things that will "clean up" the audio.

3) Funeral.

->> Jesse, I purchased a few years ago a VAAS regular tape player that allows you to input audio into your computer with some software, I haven't used it, but the model is BR602 by VAAS, so maybe you can find the micro equivalent..

->> Wesley - most microcassette recorders had earphone jacks (never mind that iPhones no longer do)and can play sound out that way - you just need to make sure the volume on the cassette player is turned up to a decent level.
