are many steps involved in restoring and transferring a recording
Each incoming order is inventoried, added to the Order Tracking
System, routed to the appropriate process and queued for studio
Each record is thoroughly cleaned. We try to get the dust
and dirt out from inside the grooves. We do not use harsh
substances that can damage the chemical balance of the record.
The best playback equipment and adjustments are determined
for each individual record. The records are then played and
digitized (recorded in digital format). We use only audiophile-grade
equipment and cables.
Each digital recording is analyzed by an experienced sound
engineer. Since this critical phase of the restoration process
requires a great deal of experience.
Each recording is restored individually, considering many
factors, such as the physical condition of the record, the
sound of the record, the type of material that is recorded,
and many other elements.
The recording is processed by powerful computers. We use only
the most advanced techniques (the same ones utilized in professional
restoration projects), as well as our own proprietary methods
and techniques. Even with powerful computers processing can
take much longer than the actual recording. Your new CD will
come with song index and CD label."
The restored recording is checked by the sound engineer. He
listens for how effective the restoration process has been.
If needed, the recording is further processed.
Before the recording can be put on a CD it must be mastered
for CD. This is the same process that is billed at a much
higher rate for the production of commercial CD releases.
The CD master goes on to the CD-R recording station. The CD
is created and labeled.
The CD (and the order) is then quality checked.
Each outgoing order is inventoried again, updated on the Order
Tracking System, carefully packed and ready to ship back to
