Is it already digitized?

If so:
$ ffmpeg -i audiofile -c:a libmp3lame audiofile.mp3
and adjust your audio settings as you need them (channel count,
quality, ...)

If you need to digitize your audio tape first, you need to tell us
about your available hardware (though this list is not really for
that). You will probably need to check out ffmpeg's "pulse" or "alsa"
indevs for capturing.
