"Dear Dr. Coban: Just got back to Rhode Island. Thanks to you and your staff the long 23 hour drive seemed shorter because I was able to spend some of those hours listening to "The Hi-Fi Nightingale." You did a terrific job restoring the voice and orchestration of this badly worn and abused 45 year old monophonic LP. I can now look forward to years of listening to Caterina. Converting this album was your test. You passed with high marks. I will enthusiastically recommend your service. I have more LPs that I would like to covert to CDs"

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
