Audio cassette digitisation

Future proof your audiocassette tapes against loss or damage

Cassettes were the first to give us portable music and most of us had large collections. They were also widely used for interviews and live recordings. But they were never designed for longevity or for the amount of playing they were often subjected to and now these cassettes are sitting on shelves with no guarantee that they’ll still be playable in the years to come.

If you have a collection of audio tapes and want to preserve some or all of them, now is your chance – we offer discount pricing on large collections.

What we do:

  • We inspect the cassette tape.
  • If necessary we will bake the tape to ensure that it can be used. If the tapes are mouldy or damaged we will contact you to advise of their suitability for digitisation.
  • Tapes are digitised to 24 bit/96kHz quality, and individual tracks split out for easy navigation.
  • Audio files can be written to .WAV files at 24 bit/96Khz quality, or written to CD at 16 bit/44.1Khz.


PLEASE NOTE: Quality can vary due to the condition of the original tape recording.

What we can digitise:

We can digitise all C series cassettes, both stereo and 4 track recordings (with an option of mixdown), and can even captue recordings from answering machines and mini audiocassettes from tape-based note recorders.
