I am a musician and I have around 100 audio cassette recordings of compositions I've done since I was a kid sitting in a box untouched for about 8 years and I am anxious to transfer and archive them to a loss-less digital format for long term safe-keeping.
The kind of solution I envision is a nearly automatic, "complete" hardware and software solution. i.e. place tape in hardware, plug direct digital line (USB, whatever) into computer (Windows 7), hit "go" button and have software (either in the hardware devise or on a Windows PC) monitor the signal and automatically chop the feed into tracks (i.e. listening for pauses in the recordings). Auto flipping would be good too.
I'm willing to spend a pretty penny (~$500, <$1000) for such a solution. I've honestly been searching for around the last 5 years and haven't found anything that fits my criteria. Recently I found http://www.cassettetousb.com/, but it looks like a toy.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be grateful. Thanks.
