A year ago, I found in my attic an old reel to reel tape that I had made over 30 years ago. I suspected it would contain some historical gems of home made recordings of family from years gone by. As I had no longer a tape machine, I had to take the risk of sending the 3 hour tape in the post to somebody I did not know, and trust him to do the job. I chose Gary at random from the Internet, and took the plunge! I can report that I am entirely satisfied with the outcome, and the CD that Gary produced from the tape is now a priceless family treasure! More recently , I sent Gary a series of cassettes on which were assembled several hours of interviews with my mother, in which she recalled in detail many stories of her life before she died. Once again Gary delivered the goods in a highly professional and timely fashion, and kept in touch with me at every stage of the process. I am therefore happy to recommend Gary’s business, without hesitation.

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.
