If you have an audio format that is not listed above, we can still help!
Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding any audio formats you have in your collection and we are happy to investigate a solution even if it is something we have not come across before.
We have the ability to handle fragile or deteriorated recordings that need special care, cleaning and/or repair.
Examples of this service include cleaning magnetic tapes with exuded lubricant (crystalline residue), treatment for magnetic tapes suffering from binder hydrolysis (sticky shed syndrome), and cleaning lacquer discs with exuded plasticizer (palmitic acid deposits).
Please contact us to find out how we can provide a customized digitization solution for your audio collection.
