Our price includes one Microcassette Tape transfer (Microcassette Tape to digital conversion) of any length of time to a new lossless digital file and a scanned picture of your original media.
You can purchase our cloud storage option and we will supply a download link to your newly digitized Micro Cassette Tape or you can purchase a CD-R or USB Thumb Drive from us above 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.
Microcassette tapes may benefit from audio restoration work, however it is nearly impossible to remove background and ambient noises that are part of the original recording. Generally what is recorded on the tape is “recorded on the tape” and cannot be taken out. We can fix abnormal tape hiss, electrical hum and volume levels as well as edit the new digital tape transfer to remove unwanted portions or sounds such as the start and stop “clicks” of the record button, etc.
If you require audio restoration to improve the sound quality of your microcassette tape to digital conversion please specify at checkout and we will give you a quote upon completion of the transfer. 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.
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 micro cassette tapes 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.
