Good Morning.
I want to record my old vinyl records to CD. I think my turntable still works but I need recommendations for software.
Thanks

Software is not the problem. You need the right hardware to amplify to low-level signal from the phono cartridge, then convert it to digital format. Entering convert records to digital in to Google will show you many options - check out http://askbobrankin....ords_to_cd.html

Thanks for the reply.
I actually have a turntable, amplifier and cables. All top of the line, in their day.
What I need is software to remove noise, normalize audio, pause between tracks and tag tracks.

Well, being an avid amateur audiophile since the late 60s, I learned long ago electronics goes obsolete the day after you buy it. If your receiver has the necessary outputs, and your card the inputs, then you are fine. As for software, you might check out Audacity mentioned in the link above.

Audiocity is a great program. I used it years ago for my music and it worked flawlessly.

Audiocity? Or Audacity?

Whichever one you referenced. I just started typing and didn't pay attention. :)

I wish. I actually think at times there's more brain cells in my pinky fingers than what left between my ears - but I blame that on quinquagenarian cranial flatulence to make me feel better. :)
