Tape Transfers

Do you have an open reel tape that your band recorded in 1977? Would you like to be able to hear those tunes, but don’t have a reel to reel, nor want to spend a lot of money buying a reel to reel?

If you are looking to have an open reel tape or cassette transferred to a digital format or burned to CD, look no further! Owner Maurizio owns several tape decks of various formats from 4-track-multitrack to 2-track masters. He also owns several cassette decks, with all decks maintained and calibrated for the best sound quality.

Various output formats are available, such as MP3, AIFF, and FLAC. A digital copy is always provided, even if a physical copy, like CD is requested. We can also make copies from tape to tape in all the mentioned analog formats, for those that wish to archive onto a fresh tape.
