Ion Profile USB Turntable

If you’ve got an old vinyl record collection and want to transfer some of the music to your iTunes collection, then a USB turntable might be in order. I tried and liked the Ion Profile. It is inexpensive at less than $100 and the quality is decent. Forget the software that comes with it as it is not Mac compatible. But it showed up as an audio input device without a problem so you can use Audacity or GarageBand to record from it and slice your own tracks from the results.

    On their website, they mention Snow Leopard compatibility:

    Tried it and I can’t see how it is very useful. You can only split tracks live – while you are recording. You miss clicking the button at the right time and you might as well start over. Much better to record in Audacity and then export portions from the recording.
