At TechHelp Ottawa, we do audio archiving the right way! We use only the best equipment available such as direct drive, state-of-the art turntables and highly acclaimed Shure-M97xE cartridges, each with a specialized stylus designed exclusively for 78s.
We have also invested heavily in state-of-the-art computer software programs that reduce surface pops, clicks and static while eliminating hum and turntable rumble. Voices are isolated and enhanced and volume is normalized where possible. We also pay close attention to equalization settings to ensure excellent sound quality—especially for 78 RPM records.
Tracks are separated manually, and high quality WAV files are produced that can be burned to CD. These WAV files can also be converted into compressed MP3 or AAC files that are imbedded with "metadata" including song and album titles, artwork, artist, genre, etc. Your computer or player needs this information to identify content. Inputting this information can be very time consuming when done manually, thus the added cost for producing audio files..
"Tagging" is the process whereby each track is imbedded with information about the song and album title, artwork, artist, genre, track number, production year, etc. This information is called "metadata" and is what your computer or player uses to identify each song.

By capturing your original media using high sampling rates, we produce large, high quality, uncompressed WAV files (exactly the same file type used on commercial CDs). It is a time consuming process, but the resulting CD has the original tracks in tact and sound quality that is equal to or better than the original.
