Digitisation Service

We can digitise your tapes. We have a sound studio at Manchester Central Library full of professional quality, regularly serviced transfer machines including:

  • Studer A807 reel-to-reel tape recorders
  • Denon DN-790R cassette decks
  • Asus BW-16D1H-U PRO DVD drives for CDA and CD-R transfer
  • Sony MZ-RH1 MiniDisc recorders
  • Tascam DA 20 MkII DAT tape recorder
  • Vinyl
  • Micro cassette dictaphone tapes

We use a Prism Sound Titan ADC to translate the analogue signals to digital at 24 bit depth and a sample rate of 96kHz. Verifile software is used to check every transfer for digital dropouts.

Tapes are stored in temperature and humidity controlled dedicated secure storage rooms. Please get in touch for a quote.
