What’s The Difference?
That’s the question many asked when seeing HD television for the first time. At first glance, there doesn’t appear to be much difference, but over time we tend to pick up on the subtle details and eventually they are no longer subtle! We use brand new vinyl record players and cassette decks, which are still in production for the professional and enthusiast markets. For reel-to-reel we rely on professional restoration technicians to continually maintain or replace our professional machines to keep them at optimal playback levels.
Pro Reel-to-Reel Decks
We use professionally restored and maintained reel players that are serviced by veterans of the analog era (who, not surprisingly, hock their wares on Ebay.
Pro Cassette/Vinyl Players
We use new high-end equipment, professionally maintained, to make sure we retrieve every detail of sound from your tape.
M-Audio Delta 192
Used for professional audio capture and editing, with the M-Audio Delta we can capture every frequency as it was meant to be heard.
Each department (photo, film, video/audio) has a single manager, and they are solely responsible for the project once it is approved and ready for processing. Our culture of honest, respectful communication helps to set the correct expectations for each project and to make clients aware of even the smallest flaws in their media to avoid surprises and to be sure we have captured at the highest level possible. With a small team of less than 10 full-time staff, we have a tight-knit group where each feels responsible to the client and takes ownership of the work being delivered.
Every order is inspected upon arrival at our studio. We make sure that the cost estimate is accurate, and that any questions we have about organization, unusual media types, or custom requests are answered before proceeding. Throughout the process your order is kept in its own clear container and every workstation has only one order being digitized at a time.
