I have used Audacity which is free and fairly straightforward.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

Halfway Hotel and Act Of Love by Voyager. It is available on CD but the cheapest i have found online is over £90 each hence ripping the lp's. I would be grateful for any help.

I am familiar with audacity but unsure of how to connect my phono stage with my laptop.

You need some sort of ADC (analogue to digital convertor). Schiit make one called the Jil. Many USB DACs also have a 'line-in' socket that does the same.

I have an old Terratec Aureon that I use.

It is so long ago I have a job to remember what I did. I did not have a phono stage at the time and seem to recall plugging the lead from my TT into thd desk top PC. It was a bit time consuming to get the levels right, but in the end the results sounded quite good.

Yes - many PC's have a 'line in' or 'audio in' socket, that will do it as well.
