Audio Restoration and Transfer Records and Tapes to CD or DVD
When looking to have your tapes or records transferred to CD, make sure your audio is transferred correctly! When audio is transferred, it is first manually processed on a computer. There are some home applications that "fix" your records and tapes with a single click of the button. Professional audio restoration is much more than that. One-click-fixes can produce unintended changes in your original sound. Removing clicks and pops incorrectly can remove other sounds from the original recording. The amount of hiss and noise may vary in the tape, removing it incorrectly can change the sound or muffle it. Drop outs need adjustment along with equalization and speed adjustments, if necessary. This is all done by listening to the sound and working through it, using the right professional tools at the right points and using the right finesse that comes with experience.

Reel to Reel Tapes to CD or Multi Channel DVD
The typical size of reel to reel tapes are 1/4 inch in width. If you have a home recorded reel, this is what you probably have. Sometimes people refer to these as "Open Reel" tapes. These are typically mono or stereo recordings. Usually they can be flipped over like a cassette, for recording on both sides of the tape. Most mono and stereo recorders supported recording on both sides of the tape. In the 70s, 4 speaker quadraphonic music moved into the home, using quarter inch tape.

We can transfer reel to reel tapes recorded at these speeds: 3-3/4 ips, 7.5 ips, 15 ips (ips = inches per second)

Mono and Stereo tapes are transferred to CD. These are the common recordings. Most home tape will be mono or stereo. If you don't know what you have, then you will have one of these. Send us a photo of the people on the tape, or whatever image you like, and we will use the photo to make the cover of your CD!

We also transfer multi channel Quad / 4-Track / Quadraphonic. Typically these are tapes that were sold as quadraphonic. Primarily in the 70s, a number of popular artists released albums in discrete quadraphonic sound. Today, only stereo copies of these can be found on CDs. These tapes contained 4 discrete channels of sound that would surround the listener. Today's home theaters are usually 5.1 or 7.1 systems. If you have a quadraphonic tape and want to hear it again, the way it was meant to be heard, we can convert your quadraphonic reel to reel and quadraphonic 8-track tapes and transfer them to a standard DVD. These will play in true discrete multi-channel sound. This is the same Dolby Digital sound encoded on today's DVD movie releases. If your tape has a printed cover and back, we will put these images on your DVD case.

Even with the huge amount of CDs available today, there is even more music that has been released on LPs that has not yet, and may never be, released on CD. We can digitize them and put them onto CD. We will even put your album art onto the CD covers. Your records will be professionally cleaned, then digitally recorded at a high sampling rate. The noise, pops, clicks will be removed. See the description above.

Record sizes: 12", 10" and 7"
Record speeds: 33 & 1/3 rpm, 45 rpm

Cassettes will be transferred to CD, using the same process that is used on records and reel-to-reel tapes.

We can transfer stereo or quadraphonic 8 tracks. Quadraphonic 8 tracks, just like quad reel to reels that are described above, will undergo the same simultaneous 4 channel digitization, cleanup and transfer to DVD so you can hear those quad tapes through your home theater system.
