First you need to bring up the Control Panel/Mixer. Make sure Record Source is set to Phono/Mic in(It's on the bottom/Left).Then in the third module from Left(Also Phono/Mic In), set that to Phono. Using the Gain Knobs, set them so that the lights are yellow or just blinking red as you are previewing the the track that you want to record. The Volume sliders do nothing in the recording stage.

Next. Open WaveLab Lite. Go to Options/Preferences and under the Audio Card tab make sure that the correct sound card is selected for Playback/Recording.
Under the File tab, select where you want your Saved file to go. In my case I created a file called Vinyl and tossed it on my desk top.
Now we can begin. On the right about half way up is the Transport. Clicking on the red record button brings up the recording interface which is on the left and also gives you the Attributes button. Here is where you set Stereo/Mono, Bit Resolution, Sample Rate.
When you click on the Stop button, a window pops up and shows you your selection in Wave form.
Now go to Master Section interface. The first thing to put in is the TT_RIAA plug-in. This gives your recording that full sound just like you were listening to it on your turn table. There are other parameters you can add such as AutoPanner, Chorus, Echo, EQ-1, Leveler, StereoExpander. Click Apply.
Almost there. Go to File/Save As.../Save As Type: Wave (*.wav)
Bring up Sound Laundry Terratec Edition. Here is where you apply DeScratcher, DeNoiser, adjust Bass/Treble/Volume. Click Save.
The final step. Bring up Music Match Juke Box. Click - File, Convert Files. On the left select where your .wav file is located. On the right select where you want to send your converted file. Select your bit rate. Click Start. Done.
