I am in the process of transferring my audio cassette collection to MP3. I am currently using two tape decks and two PCs with cables between the decks the the PC's (on board) sound-cards.
Because I have over 800 tapes to copy, I like to add a third tape deck but don't want to bring in a third PC.
If I add another sound-card to my PC, can I use two instances of Audacity to record from the two different inputs at the same time?
Another option would be to get a USB audio grabber which connects the tape deck to the PC via USB rather than the sound-card, would that help?
Is there a big difference between the sound quality of the sound-card vs. audio grabber solution?
