"I was visiting my mother this last weekend. Mom is 90 and hasn't heard her brother's voice for years. My brother and sister had never heard Uncle Bob. I took the opportunity to play the CD. All of them commented that they were surprised that I could get the records transferred to a CD. In addition, the clarity was very good. I expected to hear the characteristic scratch rhythm of the 78's but was pleasantly surprised when I realized that the usual background noise was not audible. So thanks to your efforts, our family was reacquainted with the voice of my Uncle Bob. Thank you for a job well done."

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
