Reshow Cassette to MP3 Converter
It’s been a little while since I’ve been truly excited to write a review and I am very happy to review this cassette converter.
I’m a music geek and there are some cassettes that I have that I have never been able to find the music on CD or have had a hard time finding on itunes so I was so excited to try this cassette converter.
At first I was worried because the listing says this is only compatible for Windows and I have a MAC as my main computer. I got out my old laptop which is a PC and tried the software included and had no issues but then I thought I would try it on my MAC and I got it to work! Instead of using the disc that is included with the software you need, you will have to download it but I found it online no problem. The software is called audacity and in the video part of my review I show you how it works. Also, the first time you try to convert to an mp3 you are going to need another program that I couldn’t remember in my video and that is called “lame”, it will prompt you where to to get it when you need it.
I am so excited to be listening to all my old music; I’m actually converting my Portishead tape while I’m writing this review!
This converter does include the software (as I mentioned before), headphones, a USB cable and the actual player which looks like a standard “Walkman”. I will admit when I first saw it I thought it seemed cheap and I didn’t have high hopes but it works great! The sound that comes out while it is actually playing the tapes isn’t quite as clear as what it sounds like once it is converted but it is more important that it sound good as an mp3.
I found the whole unit simple to use, the manual was easy to follow even though I had to improvise on my MAC. I am beyond excited to get all my cassettes on my computer and it doesn’t matter to me that I have to sit and listen to each track while I convert it, that’s half the fun!
