Frequently Asked Questions
"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.
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
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.
