To ensure we get the best possible recording of your vinyl records, we review and check for damage, dust and other debris. Depending on the condition of the record, it's cleaned using several of our exclusive Vinyl cleaning methods. We use a high-fidelity balanced pickup cartridge on our professional quartz-accurate weighted turntable, which is weighed and balanced for even playback. The audio signal is routed through a RIAA turntable preamp, then digitized using our professional-grade audio card. We store your vinyl (possibly permanently) in one of our anti-static & anti-scratch poly-lined record sleeves.
Once the audio is recorded, we start with our exclusive digital post processing that will add new life to your old records. We run specialized software that 'fixes' the audio by removing pops and clicks inherent to vinyl records. Click the image above to play a 70 second MP3 file demonstrating an example of the results of our digital remastering on an extremely scratched record album. We finish with any necessary compression and amplification before it's trimmed into individual tracks and burned onto a CD-R of top-rated media to ensure a high-caliber, long lasting and highly-compatible product.
Our audio engineers don't listen to every track on every album; there'd never be enough time. But they do recognize trouble spots and fix them automatically and seamlessly to produce outstanding auditory perfection. If we see/hear skips, or non-vinyl audio distortions (dirt in the grooves), we'll repair it as best possible, using all our tricks, even if that means spot-cleaning the vinyl all over again! Click on the image above to play a short 48 second MP3 audio clip of the before and after of a bad skip from an album we converted for a customer - you'll find the results to be nearly perfect!
