Thanks for the info, guys. I'd like to actually get going on the vinyl collection. It's been slow going with the Alesis, in part because I have to record in real time (obviously), then go back and listen again to insert track breaks, then burn to a CD, a process which is quite lengthy, and then take the CD and add that to my iTunes collection on the computer.
If I do the Olive solution, I realize that I'll have to convert to FLAC, about which I know next to nothing. One nice thing that I've noticed about iTunes and GracenotesDB is that I can make that CD on the Alesis and Gracenotes can recognize the resulting collection of tracks, even with at least slightly different timing than the original vinyl and, I assume, the commercial CD, and give me artist and song info, automatically. I probably have about 500 or so albums that I can archive, and the thought of entering individual song titles for them is a little daunting. Does the Olive/FLAC system have the ability to search a database for matches and automatically enter info?
Thanks again for the responses - Pat
