audio restoration

Do you have media you can no longer play? Maybe cassettes of your gigs and band rehearsals from years ago? Or your grandfather’s 78s? DAT tapes from old recording sessions? The first step towards preserving your audio is to convert it to digital. We have state-of-the-art equipment and the expertise to bring your audio — whatever the current format — up to date.

mastering

Even to the untrained ear, mastering leaves an unmistakable mark. Mastering is the final stage of post-production. You can turn your final mix into a master for CD, vinyl, iTunes, etc.  Mastering is much more than making things louder. It’s a golden opportunity to polish and clarify your recording, and make sure it’s going to sound exactly right to everyone that hears it.

 

Mastered for itunes

Apple’s AAC encoder can work with 24 bit 96 kHz high resolution masters. And it can produce a much better sounding AAC file using those high resolution masters than it can using a 16 bit 44.1 kHz (CD resolution) master. The Apple encoder converts this high-resolution, optimized master, and produces an AAC file that’s a clear improvement over a standard, non-specific iTunes file.
