      I need to get my old song cassettes (from the 80's and 90's,) into the digital world before they further deteriorate. Does anyone have a recommendation for a converter that's CHEAP and easy? I found some little walkman-style converters on amazon for like $25, but unsure if they're any good. Thanks for any recommendations!!

        I´m sure you will get the best result by buying a second hand cassette deck and connect it to your audio interface.

          Hi Tiffany,

          i did that 😀

          Used a cheap, extern USB Soundcard and Technics Tape Deck.
          Good quality internal Soundcard was just too noisy ... you heard literally your computer working 😉

          Those Walkman style converters are not good as reported from a friend of mine.
          Noisy as hell. Well, its some years ago but i dont believe they became better.

          As i switched from Soundcard to audio interface, just bought some extra cables to become the signal from tape deck.

          So the first question is: do you still have a tape deck ?
          I guess you have an adio interface 😉

            I second this advice. That's exactly what I did and the result is great.
