We can transfer your old audio cassettes to audio CD
(playable on any CD player) in two different ways. You can
choose to have your audio transferred the quick & cheap way
or the longer, more expensive way.
The quick way is $9.95 to get your cassette ready to go to
CD exactly how it sounds and $1 for each CD.
The longer, more expensive way gets your audio cleaned up
and tracked for $3.50 per 5 minutes of audio and $1 for each CD.
We start by capturing your audio into our computer in real time in
16 bit, 44.1KHz stereo (PCM) while ensuring that the volume levels
are not too loud so as to cause sound distortion (clipping).
Even if your cassette was recorded in mono we balance the sound
in stereo tracks. Each stereo channel (left and right) is then
cleaned up using high quality noise reduction software to reduce
any hiss, hum or offending frequencies. Then the volume values
are set for the best playback of the sound.
Often there will be "bumps", "thumps", coughing or other
distracting noises during the audio. If the audio context
allows for it, these noises are cut right out. If your audio
calls for tracking, like different musical numbers or speakers
in a meeting, each of these can be made into it's own track like
different songs on a music CD.
The audio is captured and worked on as a .wav file, not an MP3.
A .wav file is 10 or more times the audio values of an MP3.
As stated above, the cost for capturing and digitally cleaning
up audio from any tape is $3.50 for 5 minutes. For long audio clips
just figure $42 per hour of audio.
Each CD can hold up to 80 minutes (1 hour and 20 minutes) of audio.
The master and copies of the audio CD are then made for $1 apiece.
All this takes about 3 - 4 weeks time depending on the method of
transfer you want and the number and length of audiotapes you send.
