Transfer & Restoration Information
It's hard to believe that digital audio has been around for almost 40 years now!, but CDs, and later MP3s, iTunes, etc. have taken over. Behind the digital wave were left thousands of recordings on vinyl records, cassette tape, reel-to-reel, and more. And on the video side, with the arrival of DVD, Blue Ray, and now internet, YouTube, and streaming service delivery, all the old VHS, camera tapes, and certainly film, is left trapped in drawers, boxes in the basement, and crates in the attic! Unfortunately, those analog formats are deteriorating with age and every play ... if you even have anything that can play them at all!
Whether it's old irreplaceable music, or cherished memories of a wedding, family vacation, kid's school recording, or graduation ... or just songs you recorded at the piano 40 years ago, Sound Works can take those old formats and transfer them to CD or DVD to preserve them for years to come. Our services range from simple "budget" transfers to full restoration with advanced software. So free your memories from their analog prison! Give us a call today to get your memories preserved.
Tape damaged? Unfortunately, many VCR or Cassette tapes have already been damaged - broken cases, broken tape, etc. For irreplaceable material, in many cases we can repair the tapes at least long enough to get them transferred and preserved. If you have this situation, give us a call and we'll see what we can do!
