Audio archiving the right way!Click + sign to learn more
At TechHelp Ottawa, we do audio archiving the right way! We use only the best equipment available such as a studio quality four channel reel-to-reel tape deck that can accommodate reels up to and including 10 inches at any tape speed. Our professional audio mixer can handle up to four channels.
We have also invested heavily in state-of-the-art computer software programs that reduce inherent background tape hiss. 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.
