Since upgrading to Mountian Lion I cannot get CD Spin Doctor to work. Are there any solutions, or if not is there some alternative software I can use to import LP's to itunes 11

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    To check if your current applications are supported by the new OS - then click the red "view the OS compatibilty table", then S for SpinDoctor.  It shows SpinDoctor 1.0.1 is not support by 10.8 OS.

    The primary reason I'm not upgrading to Mountain Lion is that I use CD Spin Doctor so much for dividing audio tracks from LPs into individually named tracks and exporting them directly to iTunes. I don't even use it to record the LPs. It's the only program I know of that is really good at dividing, naming and exporting LP tracks. Too bad it apparently does not work at all with Mountain Lion. I'll stay with OS 10.7 on the computure I use for archiving vinyl just to keep using CD Spin Doctor.

    I went through a multitude of problems with CD Spin Doctor X after upgrading to Lion and subsequently Mountain Lion.  Given the fact that Spin Doctor X does not work with 10.8 I had two solution paths.  One was to partition the hard drive on my Mac mini and put 10.6 on it and use Spin Doctor X that way. The path I chose was to purchase another mac mini on eBay which I got for a steal and use it for Transcription of LPs.  I chose the M-Audio ProFire 610 device to convert my  LPs from analog to digital.  Prpfire 610 is a firewire device and I thought it would solve my problem.  But low and behold Spin Doctor X does not recognize Firewire input signals.  I have an M-audio USB device but my sense is that Spin Doctor X wont recognize that either.  These are serious weaknesses in Roxio Spin Doctor X.  I am not sure Roxio or Corel are the real owners of Spin Doctor X.  It you do an About this Software with Spin Doctor X up you find a reference to Sonic Solutions.  I have ginned up work-around solutions to the limitations of the software.  Staying with older Mac Operatng systems and versions of Spin Doctor X appears to be the only way to go.
