Does the software used by this device has a mixer that improves the sound quality?
Asked by: Armando
The included software will allow you to digitize you cassette tapes and make adjustments in level and equalization. Other more audio software on the market can be utilized as well. For PC's, there is Audacity, can be downloaded free, and for Apple users, GarageBand is usually included with the software suite included with your computer.

Can the mp3 sample rate be adjusted (kbps), and if so, what are the sample rates available?
Asked by: Alan
MP3 audio compression uses various kilobit per second (kbps - from 8 to 384 kilobits per second) data rates. The higher the data rate, the better the sound quality and the larger the file size. My question resolves around this bit rate. Can it be adjusted on this machine for the mp3 creation process?
