Press Scan To Play Old Albums?
from the interesting dept
I have a bunch of vinyl records around that haven’t seen a turntable in at least five years (the last time I owned one). I keep meaning to buy one, but it keeps seeming less and less important. Now, a bored computer science student has written a software program to (sort of) make your vinyl LPs useful again. It uses a regular flatbed scanner to
scan the vinyl and create a music file based on the grooves. The results don’t match the actual music on the record, but they’re still described as “strangely affecting”. Even the creator of the software admits that it’s, “completely useless”. Either way, if you have some vinyl, and a flatbed scanner, you might as well try it out.
