Our price includes one Home Recording Disc Transfer of any length of time, to a new lossless digital file, a thorough cleaning of your record (if possible based on composition) and a scanned picture of your original media. Also included is the basic editing of your new digital file to correct the start, end points and end fades.
You can purchase our cloud storage option and we will supply a download link to your newly digitized Home Recording Disc or you can purchase a CD-R or USB Thumb Drive from us above to transfer your media to and we will include it in your package when we return your material.
Upon receipt and inspection of your material we typically complete transfers in 3-5 business days at which time we will return your media via USPS and supply a tracking number.
Record digitizing almost always requires additional audio restoration to improve sound quality. If you would like restoration services to fix issues with your Home Recording Disc lacquer to digital conversion such as pops, crackle, hiss or hum please specify at checkout and we will give you a quote upon completion of the transfer.
It is important to note that some types of records such as acetates, home made pressings, cylinder phonograph records and aluminum or fiber core discs will most likely never be able to be fully restored but can be greatly improved. Unfortunately there is no universal solution when it comes to fixing and restoring recorded sound. Audio restoration can be simple and take 15-20 minutes or take multiple hours depending on the issues present and techniques required to perform the work. In the case of vinyl records many pops and clicks in the new digital audio transfer need to be removed by “hand” during the editing process. This results in a clean and more natural sounding master recording while preserving the original sound of the record.
Please be aware that websites offering a fixed price for restoration work are generally using a “one size fits all” approach and potentially doing more harm than good to the finished audio. Each time unwanted noise is removed it affects the audio, restoration should be tailored towards the individual recording and changes within the recording. A simple recording with 10 songs has 10 different songs, so the restoration work applied to one song doesn’t always apply to the other songs.
We monitor your media the entire time it’s being converted and perform real time adjustments if necessary to ensure the best quality digital transfers. We are not a “big box” digitizing service and do not outsource any of our work. All of your records are converted digitally in house right here in the USA. Our digitizing services are archival quality with specific attention given to the individual needs of the customer on a per project basis.
Our new and vintage transfer equipment is regularly maintained, cleaned and calibrated to provide the best sound quality for your audio transfers.
