I want to use my Linux Mint 18 (kernel version 4.4.0-62) computer to record music/recordings from (old) cassette tapes to disk using Audacity version 2.1.2.
I'm using a cable between the headphone output of the cassette recorder to the input line of my computer, and I want to be able to monitor the recordings through the speakers connected to the computer.
Linux Mint comes with ALSA and PulseAudio as standard, but I have also installed Jack2 as an alternate sound server.
But what do I do know ? Is it possible to use ALSA and PulseAudio to solve this task or should I use Jack2 alone or somehow together with PulseAudio ?
And how do I set up my system to make this work ?
