At TechHelp Ottawa, we digitize your micro-cassettes the right way! We use only the best equipment available.

We have also invested heavily in state-of-the-art computer software programs that reduce inherent background tape hiss. Where possible, we pay particular attention to voice enhancement, especially on spoken recordings, so that they often sound much better than the original tape. 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

Tapes are notorious for their background hiss. Reducing this annoying distraction on micro cassette tapes is included in the price. Many home recorded tapes, however, require extensive sound editing, voice enhancement and restoration at additional cost.
Regardless of how many sessions there are on a micro cassette tape, content is initially captured as one continuous sound file. Therefore, tracks must be manually separated one at a time, at 50¢ per track, before they can be committed to CD or converted to audio files.
For just $7 more, the surface of each CD is professionally imprinted with a custom-made inkjet label using a photo of your choice. Each CD is packaged in a paper sleeve for protection.
We use only the best equipment available, such as a professional studio mixing board and state-of-the art micro cassette players. 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). Sound files are passed through software specially designed to reduce tape hiss.

Tips For Better Service

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that micro cassette tapes be accurately labelled. This helps us to properly label the resulting CDs.
It really helps when you present us with tapes that are rewound to the beginning.
