Frequently Asked Questions

We can convert music files to WAV or compressed or MP3 format for use on MP3 or iPod™ players.

METADATA TAGGING
"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.
For just $5 more, the surface of each CD is professionally imprinted with a custom-made inkjet label using an image of the record label or the image of your choice. Each CD is packaged in a paper sleeve for protection.
Included in the price, audio files are put through software specially designed to reduce surface noise such as crackle, pops and clicks, AC hum and turntable rumble on vinyl records. We can isolate and enhance voices if required. Badly damaged records often need supplemental sound editing at additional cost.
Beware of other methods available now for transferring 78 RPM records to CD. The most popular is the USB turntable. In our experience, these products are inferior because they often use cheap phono cartridges, inferior styluses and plastic turntables, producing only mediocre sound quality and files that are usually highly compressed.

At TechHelp Ottawa, we do audio archiving the right way! We use only the best equipment available such as a professional studio mixing board and direct drive, state-of-the art turntables. For 78 RPM records, we use the highly acclaimed Shure-M97xE cartridge with specialized stylus.

We also pay close attention to equalization settings—especially for 78 RPM records—to ensure excellent sound quality.

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.


WE SPECIALIZE IN SOUND RESTORATION

Do you have a collection of one-of-a-kind 78 RPM records that you would like to permanently archive? We can help.

In the process of digitizing your precious treasures, we take special care to reduce background hiss, surface crackle and turntable rumble. We have invested heavily in software that extracts and enhances voices, reviving ageing 78s to near their original luster without damaging the integrity of the recorded sounds, frequency range and dynamics. Each track is edited manually and individually normalized. Read more here.

Badly damaged records and/or self-recorded 78 RPM discs often need supplemental sound editing at additional cost.

We especially enjoy working with self-recorded discs on labels such as Voice-O-Graph, Audiodisc, RecorDisc, Wilcox-Gay Recordio Disc, A-A Acoustics (Rainbo), Audio Devices, Inc., and Gould-Moody.
