Tape Digitizing Services We Offer

About Our Tape Transfer Services

Analog and digital tapes degrade over time. If you have important audio recordings on tape whether a band demo, priceless family recording, rare concert, taped interview or studio master it is imperative that you transfer it to a stable digital format.

Tapes over 20 years old suffer from a variety of problems, one of the most common that effects nearly all reel tape is known as “sticky-shed syndrome” whereby the binder that holds ferric oxide on the magnetic tape deteriorates causing the tape to shed it’s coating potentially ruining both the tape and the playback machine. A multitude of other problems such as brittle tape, shrinkage and mold are caused by improper storage and poor climate.

We assess every tape that we receive and use professional archival methods to prepare your tapes for transfer including the process of “baking” which heats the tape in a stable and controlled low temperature environment to temporarily stabilize the binding in order to safely playback and transfer. After the tape digitizing process is completed we are able to remove unwanted noise such as hiss, 50 & 60 Hz electrical hum and fix volume levels, finally creating the new digital master copy.

We offer a variety of audio tape transfer services for individual clients, religious groups and universities as well as a fast turnaround time.
