A gadget that transforms your old cassettes into MP3. Cassete to MP3 Converter

If you were raised in the 80s, you probably feel nostalgic every time you see an old cassette because you remember the golden era of music when everyone was making mixtapes for their loved ones, when we were enjoying that analong sound with background noise on our old Walkman devices. If you are like me, there is a big chance that you still have 5-10 old cassettes hidden in your personal chest (along with other memories) that¬† you haven’t played for a while because no one is using cassette players these days. In order to convert those cassettes to MP3 files you will need a Line-In cable, a good audio interface (or a soundcard)¬† and a recording software. Oh, and a cassette player. It’s not that difficult, but you do need to create a small recording setup in order to transfer the music from the tape to today’s computer. Of course, there is always the alternative to get a cheap gadget like DBTech Audio USB Portable Cassette Tape-to-MP3 Player Adapter.


This USB Cassette to MP3 Converter allows you to convert your old mixtapes or tape recordings into MP3s so you can listen to them on your smartphone or laptop. The device operates either on batteries or USB power and it features its own converting software that will guide you through the converting process.
