Audio archiving the right way!

At TechHelp Ottawa, we do audio archiving the right way! We use only the best equipment available such as a studio quality DAT tape deck and professional audio mixers.

We have also invested heavily in state-of-the-art sound editing software. We pay particular attention to voice enhancement, especially on spoken recordings. Volume is normalized where necessary.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Regardless of how many songs there are on a DAT tape, content is initially captured as one continuous sound file. Therefore, tracks must be manually separated—one song at a time, at 50¢ per track—before they can be committed to CD or converted to digital files.
We can convert music files to 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 your choice. Each CD is packaged in a paper sleeve for protection.
At TechHelp Ottawa, we do audio archiving the right way! We use only the best equipment available such as an AIWA DAT recorder and Tascam 488 studio mixing board.

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.
