Convert Reel to Reel Audio Tape to CD or MP3
Audio tape degrades over time from environmental conditions as well as from wear and tear each time the tape is actually played. Digitizing your audio tapes and reels now is the only way to ensure that your recordings last for a lifetime at the best quality possible. At PhotoSource, we convert your analog tapes and reels to digital files, which can be delivered as either a playable audio CD or as MP3 files. Tapes are played on professional decks with noise reduction applied (to remove common background-level hiss and static) and are then digitized on a DAW (digital audio workstation). Simple audio restoration filters can be applied to bring low-level audio up to normalized levels and to remove unusable or silent sections of audio tape. All of this is done without damaging your original audio tapes.
Reel to Reel Audio Tape Conversion Pricing
Please note: We currently convert only 1/4" Stereo or Mono Audio Tapes on reels. To confirm the size of your tape, look at your reel's packaging or measure the width of the tape. We do NOT convert wider tapes or multi-track cassettes such as 8-tracks at this time.

Digitized audio tapes are deliverable either as playable audio CDs or as MP3 files burned to CD or transferred to a USB drive (sold separately). Duplicate CDs are available for an additional $4.95/ea at the time of service.
