"I have just listened to the CD that you made from the at least 44 year old 33 1/3rd rpm album I sent you. The record was of lousy quality to begin with. It had been a private label recording -- a vanity record -- recorded by a group of local Dixieland musicians in the late '60s. I was never able to play it or enjoy it because it had such a terribly quavery quality to it. Figuring I had nothing much to lose I sent it to you, paid for the album cover reproduction and an extra fee for fixing problems. There are no words to tell you how delighted I am with what you were able to accomplish. It is actually possible to listen to the songs without cringing. I used to dance the Charleston with this group and being able to listen to them sing and play again has given me an unforgettable trip down Memory Lane. Thank you so much!! "

Types of Noises Successfully Removed or Diminished

  • We try to restore the sound to match the original sound of the master tapes, at the time when the recording was made. We perform Restorations and Transfers to CD starting from almost any format. For a complete list of formats we accept for transfer and restoration, please click here: Formats Accepted.
  • Here are the most common types of noises we remove or diminish from old recordings:
    • Scratches 
    • Crackles 
    • Pops 
    • Vinyl hiss 
    • Cylinder noise 
    • Tape hiss 
    • Static noise 
    • Hum 
    • Buzzes 
    • Motor or A/C noise 
    • Constant pitched noises   
    • Clicks or ticks
  • These corrections can be applied at additional cost:
    • Correct the pitch or the speed of a recording
    • Correct the wabble (periodic variations in pitch) of an "excentric" record (the hole is not perfectly in the center of the record)
    • Remove excessive low or high frequencies
    • Remove the RIAA phono curve and/or use alternative curves
    • Create high frequencies for a recording that lacks high frequencies using the high-mid-range frequencies with the use of an "Aural Exciter"
    • Create low frequencies for a recording that lacks low frequencies using the low-mid-range frequencies with the use of a "Synthesizer"
    • Give recordings a sweeter sound or a tube-amplifier sound 
    • Give recordings more punch or a harsher, digital sound
