Audio Tapes to Digital

Preserve Those Audio Tape Memories!

THE CASSETTE

Remember the days when a cassette was the great new technology? Ask anyone from the 70's and 80's and they'll tell you it was the best way to record audio back then. People recorded special events, local bands, and just family conversations. Unfortunately, those tapes won't last forever. The effects of time can wipe out those memories. Get your audio tapes converted to digital, so you can preserve and share those moments with family and friends.

Audio Tapes to CD

THE PROCESS

Audio on tape, especially from decades ago, can often use some improvement. We carefully capture the audio from both sides of your cassette. Next, we "clean" your audio. Using software, we reduce and remove the hiss and hum (which is common to most consumer audio tapes) to improve the quality of your final audio. This cleaning process is done at no extra cost. The last step is to create an Audio CD or audio file for USB, based on your preference. Don't forget to get copies to share!

THE DIFFERENCE

All conversions are completed in our office; your tapes are secure here! Take comfort knowing that the people you speak to (or email) will be the same people working on your audio tapes. Please feel free to ask questions. Converting old media is our passion and we understand how important they are.




"I went in and talked to (them) regarding converting cassette tapes of my late husband's Jazz Combo into CD's to give to family and friends as a remembrance. He did an amazing job in a timely manner and even designed a label for the CD and jacket covers that is purely professional. One would have never guessed by the quality of the sound of the CD's that they were taken from old cassettes tucked away in a paper bag. Thank you ... for helping me preserve those precious memories for my family."
