    What kind of gear do you use?
    You left a world full of memories, capacious as the sea.
    Between eternity and time, your consciousness and me.
    The legacy...

    I take it you use CD players/mixer, then you will need this cable (picture), from RCA-cables (red/white) to PC audio cable. Put them in record or 'out' on the mixer (or amp), and the PC one in Digital 'in' (blue hole = line in). If you don't have blue, try the pink one (microphone).

    You need to select line-in as "recording" option, in your windows (if you use windows) audio settings. Its probably set to mic by default, you need to select "line in". Then in your audio software host, I personally use Wavelab, you can record and save etc.

    Make sure you don't clip when you mix (so avoid red lights on the mixer), because then the audio will clip in the recording (eventhough it might sound not too bad "live", it will suck in the recording).
