Convert your legacy audio formats to high quality digital files!

Whether cassette or record, each of these two formats has become dear to our hearts. We have used audio cassette tapes to capture important moments or copy our favorite hits for listening in the car. Vinyl records are synonymous with the classics of Pink Floyd, The Beatles or Abba. In times gone by, we put the records on the record player and enjoyed the hits in the best available sound quality.

However, both formats have different problems. The quality of records is still very good, since they don’t readily deteriorate, but who of us owns a turntable today?

In contrast, the quality of an audio cassette is relatively short-lived. Not only is there a fear of shredded tape, but there is a risk of permanently losing the recordings due to the loss of quality over time. The only way to preserve these memories for the future, is to transfer the audio cassettes to CD.

Audio to DVD FAQs

What process do you use to transfer records and tapes?

All tapes and spools are played in their original formats (i.e. record player, cassette deck, reel to reel player, etc.) and they are recorded onto a computer where any digital filtering or correction is done. From there the files are saved as uncompressed .wav files (for CD) or converted into mp3, WMA, AAC, or any other format requested by the customer. Resulting files are burned to an audio or data CD as needed.

How much data is stored into an audio CD?

We transfer 80 minutes of the audio into a CD, if the file exceeds 80 minutes we will split the file into two half's and transfer it to two CD's.

Do you store my digitised audio after my order is completed?

We retain a backup of your audio for a duration of 45 days. This is to ensure that you have a backup if there is some problem with the DVD/ Download link. You can request for an additional copy of the audio within these 45 days. Charges applicable.
