Frequently Asked Questions

Tapes are notorious for their background hiss. Reducing this annoying distraction on reel-to-reel tapes is included in the price. Often, though, advanced audio restoration is required for content recorded on reel-to-reel tapes.
Regardless of how many recording sessions or songs there are on a 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.
For just $5 more, the surface of each CD is professionally imprinted with a custom-made inkjet label using an image of the tape container or the image of your choice. Each CD is packaged in a paper sleeve for protection.
We use only the best equipment available, such as our professional studio mixing board and professional series TEAC A-3340S four channel reel-to-reel tape deck. 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 reel-to-reel tapes are accurately labelled. This helps us to properly label the resulting CDs.
Knowing the length of each tape will help with calculating an estimate. Since CDs hold 80 minutes or less of content, reel-to-reel tapes over 80 minutes require more than one CD, at additional cost.

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

In the process of digitizing your precious treasures, we take special care to reduce tape hiss and consistent background noise such as a fan, air conditioner or hum. We have invested heavily in software that revives ageing reel tapes to near their original luster without damaging the integrity of the recorded sounds. Read more here.

Please note that home recorded reel to reel tapes often need extensive sound editing at additional cost.
