Gary Ankin has taken a very tatty, degraded 1960s audio tape on a reel of mine, and transferred it to a CD which involved much delicate handling such as carefully lubricating the ancient tape as it travelled over the tape heads and rollers to avoid it failing that he has done brilliantly. I cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism in doing this and would undoubtedly ask him to carry out similar work for me.
Testimonial by DG from Northamptonshire
We use high end equipment to get the best results we can from your open reel tape. We use Revox Reel to Reel recorders with Cedar Audio hardware to enhance the results of the recordings by reducing unwanted hiss & noise on tape to CD, along with equipment from Sony, Akai, Sanyo and periphals from goldring, Ortofon and Creative Labs, Denon & JVC, over £20,000 of equipment in total which shows we are passionate about what we do!
There are no shortcuts everything analogue being transferred to digital has to be first recorded in real-time, edited in most cases to ensure the sound file is of a good standard, Generally you will get approx 80 minutes of audio onto a CD, more if you have the CD in an MP3 format, you will need a CD player that will manage your MP3 disc, a PC or DVD player will usually do this but not always your Hi Fi CD player.
If in Northamptonshire and have open reel cassettes to put on CD, give us a shout.
