•Turnaround time is usually pretty quick – usually a couple of days – depending on how much you have to transfer and what is already in queue. Please remember that everything is transferred in real time and cannot be done so in fast forward.
•It is important to be aware that what you hear is what you get. If your LP has scratches, then you will hear those scratches in the recording on CDr. The same is also true for cassettes, where a warped or well-worn tape will transfer exactly as they are.
•LPs will have general cleaning before being recorded. Cassettes and VHS will be re/wound to prevent the tape from sticking during playback.
•The CDr will have track markers placed between songs so you can access individual songs as with a factory pressed CD.
LP to CDr –
$12 per single LP to CDr
$20 if 2 LPs will fit onto a single 78 minute CDr.
$10 per CDr if transferring a single LP not requiring any track breaks. This is especially useful for comedy or live albums lacking obvious song starts and stops, utilize cross-fading or employ medleys.
SHELLAC 78s to CDr –
$10 for the first 45 minutes to CDr and .25 cents per minute thereafter.
We can certainly transfer your 78s to CDr. As before, what you hear is what you get. We don’t apply filters or attempt to fix the flaws inherent in shellac 78s.
CASSETTE to CDr –
$12 for the first 45 minutes to CDr and .25 cents per minute thereafter.
If cassettes have missing pads or broken housings that cause them to not play, then there is an additional charge of $15 per hour (whether or not the work ends of fixing the cassette) to make it playable.
VHS to DVDr –
$12 per half hour
We cannot improve the resolution of the VHS copy and flaws are expected in older tapes. Also- we do not edit out elements, moments or scenes within a longer recording. We can combine multiple VHS tapes onto a single DVDr if room allows. We do not place chapter markers within your recordings onto DVDr.
OTHER FORMATS –
Please inquire with us if you have something that you would like transferred and we’ll let you know if and what is possible.
