A quality audio conversion begins with the proper preparation. We first inspect, then clean and repack any audio tape recording to insure that your tape is in good condition and tracks properly. Disk recordings are thoroughly cleaned with professional methods to the remove dust, dirt and mold. We have special cleaning solutions/treatments for removing fatty acid deposits on early disk recordings. Tape baking services are offered for those tapes that are challenged with "sticky shed" syndrome. We can also handle tapes suffering from other forms of decay including: mold contamination, shrinkage of acetate based tapes and tapes that display "soft binder" syndrome. Our audiotape decks are all pro-audio playback decks. We have the capability to decode dbx and Dolby SR, A, B and C noise reduction. Our reel-to-reel decks are custom built for archival playback with the ability to play most any audio track format or tape speed ever recorded onto 1/4" or 1/2" audio tape. Record and erase heads have been removed and the units are especially gentle on older "challenged" tape as there are no stationary friction points other than the playback heads. The drive mechanisms are of the highest quality and most technically advanced. Playback heads on all our audiotape decks in every format, have the ability to match the alignment of the original recording head (azimuth). This can be "mission-critical" in capturing the full frequency range originally recorded on an audiotape. Samples below compare another companies 1/4” audiotape transfer without the ability to calibrate to the original record head azimuth, verses a transfer by MTS with the same original tape. Though not always this dramatic, this sample is a great example of what the difference can be. Our audio disk conversion chain uses precision turntables with 12 adjustable speed settings from 13 rpm to 104 rpm to cover most any original recording speed as well as allow for half-speed and quarter-speed playback for warped disks or disks with damaged grooves. We have twelve stylus sizes and shapes which enable us to best replicate the original frequency range and "ride" at the best height in the groove to find the least wear/most information. Archival quality phono pre-amps made especially for audio restoration work give us the versatility to dial in to almost all the equalization curves used from the early 1900's through modern day recordings. For mono audio recordings we can pull audio from either the left or right groove walls, or both. All professional playback units are kept calibrated, cleaned and demagnetized. We exclusively use Prism Sound analog to digital audio processing hardware. Prism Sound is the industry standard for the most pristine analog-to-digital signal conversion without any coloration or digital artifacts. The signal is captured directly to computer at appropriate data rates based on project requirements. The majority of the equipment in our audio conversion chain is the same equipment used by organizations such as the Library of Congress and the National Archives. The end product. Depending on the original condition of the media and end-user needs, our professional audio editing programs can utilize digital noise reduction techniques as well as "sweeten" the audio improving the quality of the sound for derivatives of the raw master. The master track can be broken down into individual cuts. We can then render the audio to any format required by the client. For clients with media library archives, we offer detailed logging of media information, content, conversion specifics, audible and measurable quality/abnormalities for future archiving and metadata records.
