The original records themselves cannot be physically altered to improve their reproduction on conventional record players (although pro-wet vacuum cleaning makes a substantial difference!)
However, with careful and sympathetic use of digital audio restoration tools, the majority of clicks and crackles can be effectively removed or significantly reduced from most records, without adversely affecting the underlying sound. The restored tracks are transferred to CD-R or other digital media, enabling them to be played conveniently, with no further degradation to the sound.
Yes, as long as you provide a minimum of eight tracks, you can choose music from any format (records, tapes and digital media) – simply choose the tracks you wish to have on the compilation and the order in which they should appear, and leave the rest to us! Each track is charged at £4.00, so the minimum cost will be £32.
A – The ideal solution would be to purchase an Audio Restored Gift Voucher. This way you could decide how much you wish to spend, and let him choose the records! The vouchers, available in multiples of £25, come in a Gift card and envelope, and can be exchanged for all the transfer services we offer.
Yes, all tracks are separated during the recording process (up to a maximum of 99 tracks!), and CD text is added, allowing the title to be read on a suitably equipped text-enabled player.
As long as the original source material is out of copyright (i.e. most shellac 78s, and vinyl LPs released over 50 years ago), OR you own the copyright yourself, you can request as many copies as you wish.
Broadband hiss can be effectively reduced/removed from tape recordings in most cases.
Any track order can be accommodated – just contact us with clear instructions.
Yes, bulk discount of 10% is offered to transfers of 20 sides or more of any format. Contact us for confirmation prior to placing your order.
Yes, but remember that .mp3 is a lossy, compressed format designed for convenience, and the resulting sound quality, although OK for ipod etc, may not sound as good when played through a good stereo system. Please note: we also offer other file type formats such as FLAC, which is lossless, so would show an improved sound quality over .mp3. The file size would be greater than .mp3 but smaller than .wav.
Yes, wet-record vacuum cleaning is available as a separate service, and all cleaned 7″, 10″ and 12″ records are returned in a new poly-lined paper inner sleeve to keep them pristine. 10% discount on 40 sides or more applies to this service.
