Thanks! It seems to be recorded too fast, though. Jimi speaks very fast and in high tone. Mabe you could record (sample) it a again after lowering speed a bit on the Technics SD-L5.

Fair enough, thank you. When you do, compare the pitch to a cd first, try to match it, before the transfer. Thanks for your work :)

Well, generally I was just keen to upload all my vinyl collection w/o any additional edits such as speed/pitch correction so I am more willing to let do this to someone who has better skills in such things than me.

Anyone with an editing software can do it. I could. The thing is, if it is done before the transfer itself, it gets a slightly better quality, cos ususlly any processing made to the file degrades the sound a little. Mabe it's un-noticed but it's there. Anyway these are your transfer and work and should stay Raw, imo, rather than every bored taking a "remastering" at them.

It's great what you do, just next time lower the pitch a little before the transfer (if needed). you do have a pitch dial there? no editing needed.

You're absolutely right when it comes for making a correct speed/pitch with analog recordings. I cannot promise when I find the time to do this but I will keep this in mind. Eventually there are other people out there who might be enough reliable in such things and help in this particular matter, and of course, in uploading their own collections.
