How We Do It

There are many steps involved in restoring and transferring a recording to CD:

Each incoming order is inventoried, added to the Order Tracking System, routed to the appropriate process and queued for studio time.

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, to provide you with the best possible sound restoration.

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 the customer.
