- Gramofile to record from the sound card through line in from the source (e.g., LP record)

- Audacity to confirm and fine tune the track splits stored in the .tracks file.
- Gramofile to perform the split into tracks and to filter out pops using the Conditional Median Filter II. The tracks are saved into separate files numbered 01, 02, etc.
- Xmms to check the beginning and ending of each track to confirm the splits were fine.
- Audacity to edit out any remaining spikes in each track, being sure to export back to WAV if any changes are made.
