old recording that you would like transferred to a CD,
please let us know. Your recording may be in 45,
LP, cassette, 8-Track, or standard 1/4 inch reel to reel
formats (1 7/8, 3 3/4, 7 1/2, 15, or 30 ips). We also can transfer
radio station carts to CD, using one of two in-house triple-decker ITC
Tape recordings can and
will normally deteriorate with time, even without playing
them. While LP's fare considerably better than tape, they
will still lose sound quality with each playing.
If your recording is in public domain or of a personal
nature, most any quantity of CDs can be made from
your original. An example of a personal recording
would be one of your children playing in the school band.

note: If heavy pops and ticks are present throughout all
or most of your recording, some low volume and/or low
tone pops may be randomly present in the completed
CD. However, the final result will still sound better than the original recording. Please also
be aware that it is impossible for us to remove any noise
in an original recording that overwhelms the music
without also removing some of the music in the
process. We will take absolute care in providing
you with the best quality reproduction possible.
