Question

Does your album to digital product include software for scratch removal?

I have a large vinyl collection as old as 1965. Do you have software that will let me remove scratches and interpolate the original sound across the area where the scratch was removed?

The software included (Audacity) does have the ability to remove some scratches in an attempt to give you more of the original sound. If you contact the Audio-Solutions Team (audio-solutions@atus.com), we can send you a document on how to attempt this operation.

Question

Tone arm does NOT track all the way to the end of the record

When the tone arm gets to about the middle of the 2nd last track it stops tracking beyond that point and if I raise the tone arm and gently move it beyond this point there is some slight resistance until the tone arm reaches a point about level with the end of the last track and then the auto function activates and the tone arm returns to the tone arm rest and the turntable shuts down. Please email me instructions on what to do to have this faulty operation fixed.

I have only just set up this turntable a couple of days ago - you shipped it to me on 20 July 2011.

Thank you for your inquiry. First, make sure you are not connecting to a USB hub, but instead directly to a USB port on the computer. Try other USB ports if you have multiple ports. Try connecting the turntable to another computer if one is available. You may need to contact your computer vendor to make sure that the USB Audio Codec is installed and working. This is part of the operating system and is necessary for operation.

Question

Even with proper settings, LPs sound like the Chipmunks.

The platter is turning too fast at the 12" and 33rpm setting, such that the vocalists sound like the Chipmunks. I've tried switching the controls back and forth, tried it at 45rpm (it's faster than the alleged 33rpm setting), and have tried multiple LPs. All have this problem.

Thank you for your inquiry. Check the belt to make sure it is properly seated into the groove of the drive pulley. If it is riding too high or too low this would cause the turntable to run fast. To check this, remove the felt mat from the patter. Turn the platter until one of the square holes is at the 10 o'clock position. You should see the brass drive pulley. Make sure the belt is only in the groove. If this does not resolve the issue you will want to contact our service department at (330) 686-2600 Option 4.

The AT-LP60 turntable features only an RCA audio output for connection to a stereo receiver.

The AT-LP60-USB turntable features an RCA audio output for connection to a stereo receiver, and a USB audio output for connection to a PC or Mac. The LP60-USB also includes recording software to use with your computer.

The above details the ONLY differences between the AT-LP60 and AT-LP60-USB.

Thank you for your inquiry. Open Control Panel on your computer. In Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound select the Recording tab. Set the "USB Audio CODEC" as the default recording device. Please note that it is not identified as a turntable because it used the USB Audio CODEC that is a standard part of the operating system. Please note that you will need to set this in the Audacity preferences window as well.

When I go to Control panel "Hardware and Sound" is not a choice. In "SOund" there is no "USB Audio Codec" to choose... now what?

There are some variations in the look of Control Panel, but it appears that you arrived at the correct configuration window. Look under the Recording tab for the USB Audio Codec. This may be labeled Microphone with USB Audio Codec underneath. If it is not there, the first thing to check is your cable. Many USB printers use the same cable, so you could try one of those if you have one available. If this does not work, try connecting to another computer if you have one available. If it still is not recognized the turntable may be defective and you will need to contact our service department at 330-686-2600, option 4. If it recognized by another computer, then your operating system may be missing the USB Audio Codec and you will need to contact you vendor.

Question

Turntable fails to play the end of the record...

My turntable "every-once and awhile" fails to return to the beginning after the record ends. It also seems that some records are "recorded" close to the label in the middle. And the arm seems to hit a limit of travel and will hold it's position on the record...resulting in a...well I guess a skip.

Other than that I love this little guy.

Question

AT-LP60 - w/ or w/o USB

Regarding 2 earlier questions:

First question asked if the AT-LP60 could be used to convert LP’s to MP3. You replied that the user should download the Audacity software and then, “using the RCA to 3.5 adapter cable that we include in the box, connect the turntable to the line input of your computer.”

On my laptop, I have a Mic input. Is that the connection I should use?

Second question asked how the AT-LP60 and the AT-LP60 USB compare to each other. You replied that they “are the exact same turntable except for the addition of the USB port on the AT-LP60-USB. The USB version can still be used as a component turntable via the RCA cables.”

What is the USB port used for? Output music to computer via USB cable? Output music to USB flash drive to transfer music to computer or play on another device? In other words, what is the advantage of the USB version of the turntable?

Thanks for help.
