What format are the tapes, BTW? Reel to reel? Cassette? 8 track?

It makes a difference. I found a terrific device for digitizing cassette tapes, for instance.
3.6 ghz i7-7700 running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with 16 gigs RAM and a 2 terrabyte HD. Also iMac 2.6 ghz dual-core, 4 gigs of RAM, running OSX El Capitan and Boot Camp Windows 10 64-bit.

You can record audio plugged into your computer with the excellent free program Audacity.

Though my cassette digitizer plugs into a USB port and it's worth every penny I invested in it.
