    I used the speed feature to record 33 at 45 and convert back to 33 to save time. Since I am not a trained audiophile the result is ok for me.

    If it works for you that is fine, just remember that playing back the records at a higher speed will cause excess wear on the needle and grooves of the record.

    Put captions, please, so I can read them. I can not understand spoken English.

    Thank you. I have used Audacity a very little bit, but never took the time to learn the features you showed. I need to try this with some 33 1/3 rpm LPs we own.

    .  Tip: For 33-1/3 LPs made since the mid-1950s, you have to apply RIAA equalization, either through hardware (built-in to most amplifiers/receivers with a phono input) or software (a filter for Audacity) if you use a recently manufactured unit without a phono input.

    I bought a phono preamp for $40 off Amazon (Rolls VP29). Its about the cheapest one you can find and has everything I wanted except The ability to turn the EQ on or off.
