What we offer:

Thomas Edison’s invention of the phonograph in 1877 marked the beginning of sound recording technology.

In 1948, Columbia Records introduced the long-playing (LP) record, which played at 33⅓ revolutions per minute (RPM) and could hold around 20 minutes of music per side. The LP revolutionized the music industry, allowing for longer recordings and higher fidelity.
In 1948, RCA Victor introduced the 7-inch 45 RPM single, which became popular for distributing individual songs. The 45 RPM single was durable, affordable, and convenient.

Vinyl Dominance: Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, vinyl records dominated the music market. They were the primary medium for distributing music, with millions of records being sold each year.

In recent years vinyl has seen a resurgence in popularity. Many artists now release new material on vinyl.

Audio Cassette - A New Era

Introduction of Compact Cassettes:

The modern audio cassette format was introduced by Philips in 1963. The compact cassette, often referred to simply as a cassette, featured a small plastic shell containing two reels of magnetic tape. The cassette was initially designed for dictation purposes but quickly gained popularity for recording and playback of music.

Popularity and Adoption:

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, audio cassettes became the dominant format for music playback and personal recording. Cassettes were portable, affordable, and easy to use, making them popular among consumers. They were also used for recording mixtapes, sharing music, and as a medium for audio books.

Advancements in Technology:

Over time, advancements in cassette technology led to improvements in sound quality, durability, and recording time. High-quality cassette decks with features like Dolby noise reduction and auto-reverse became available, catering to audiophiles and enthusiasts.

Decline and Obsolescence:

In the late 20th century, audio cassettes began to decline in popularity with the advent of digital audio formats such as CDs and MP3s. These digital formats offered superior sound quality and convenience, leading to a gradual decline in cassette sales and production.

Transferring audio cassette tapes to digital

Converting audio cassettes to digital format involves careful handling of the tapes and high-quality equipment to ensure the best possible transfer of audio with minimal loss of quality. I use professional grade analogue to digital converters capable of capturing audio at high resolutions and sample rates for optimal sound quality. I can apply noise reduction, equalisation, and other audio restoration techniques as needed to improve the overall sound quality of the tape.. Particular attention is given to the audio quality of home recordings.

Transferring Converting vinyl records to digital formats requires care and attention to detail to ensure the best possible audio quality.

I have invested in a high-quality turntable, phono preamp, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and audio recording software. Quality equipment will ensure accurate playback and capture of the audio signal. Before digitising I clean the vinyl to remove dust, dirt, and debris from the surface of the record to minimise background noise and improve audio quality. Where the recording is damaged I can apply noise reduction software to help reduce unwanted artefacts such as pops and clicks. It can be challenging to completely eliminate these imperfections without affecting the original audio,
