abt summer rain i have it on lp's but the needle of my technics is broken so just give me time till the begining of new month so that i get paid my salary to buy a new needle and i'll record and send it to you
" how to go about " is really hard
but try Propellerheads Reason a very interresting software and music production console but it's very hard and will take a lot of time to learn it but it deserves a try
open the wave file in an audio editor and download a direct x plugin called izotope ozone it comes with built in presets and should do any kind of mastering operation u may need
all you need in this procedure is good pair of ears and everything else is a piece of cake :)
both ways work you can mix just like live mixing with sound forge but u have to have the enough experience to do that and if u r good in sound forge and you know the rules of the games you can do anything software or hardware
i recorded over 1000 lp's in the past five years the best way is to connect ur turntable to a mixer the connect the main out of the mixer to the line in in the pc and record using sound forge (don't forget to connect the ground cable on the mixer) get a direct x plugin called sonic foundry...
