We are experts in vinyl record to CD transfer and record digitizing to hard drive or cloud storage and have years of experience in the field of digital audio restoration to enhance the sound quality of your rare discs or cylinders. We can digitize nearly all types of records produced in the last 140 years including 12″ vinyl, 7″ vinyl, styrene, home made lacquers (Audiodisc Voice-O-Graph, Recordio, Wilcox-Gay, etc.) acetates, aluminum records, picture discs, 10″ shellac, 78 RPM records, glass records, 20″ Pathe records, Edison Diamond Disc and Voicewriter records & 16″ Records commonly called “transcription discs”.  Audio Conservation Labs also has the ability to transfer many varieties of antique phonograph records such as the 2 minute wax cylinder, 4 minute “Blue Amberol” celluloid cylinder & vertical or lateral cut discs in sizes ranging from 2 to 20 inches.

Our intake process begins with an inspection to look for imperfections such as warping, chips, scratches and pressing plant defects. The record is then cleaned based on the composition of the media and fragility of the disc or cylinder in order to facilitate an optimal digital transfer. Depending on the record type, we use modern or antique equipment and needles that have been properly timed, calibrated and customized to obtain the best possible sound quality from your records.

The resulting digital audio files can then be restored (according the the needs of the customer) to remove pops, clicks, crackle, hum and other common record noises. Finally the volume and channel levels are corrected and a new digital master copy is created and safely stored on a hard drive.

The following example is from a mid 1960’s stereo recording on 12″ vinyl in rather poor condition.

Below is an example of a shellac 78 record in fair condition from the early 1940’s that was digitized and restored. We were able to remove most of the crackle, hiss and pops in order to get the final master sounding great. Keep in mind, the  sound quality of  early recordings is unique and certainly not sonically comparable to modern record pressings.

The 2 minute wax cylinder phonograph sample below is over 115 years old. Early phonograph records were recorded without electricity or microphones. It is virtually impossible with current technology to completely remove all noise and imperfections present in early phonograph record recordings. The canned, monotone and primitive sound is inherent to the format. However, as you can hear below the audio can be be greatly improved after digitizationand and safely archived from its deteriorating media.
