  Cassette to Digital 

     Audio Cassette to Digital


Shaw Sounds  transfer all lengths of cassette tape to digital -

They usually come in 5 tape lengths: C30, C60,  C90, C100 & C120 (please see price list for details)

Where the playing time of an audio cassette exceeds the CD duration (80min), a 2nd CD is produced together with a dual CD case.                        f

Any of these lengths of cassette tape can be transferred to CD taking out any hiss and noise during conversion.Sometimes audio cassettes are prone to tangling within the tape case - these can be repaired and spliced prior to copying.Cassettes that are severely damaged and have suffered from deterioration over the years, can be baked, spliced, edited and restored. This procedure takes a little longer to complete, therefore a separate price of £25.00 per hour is observed.

Audio cassettes are played on industry standard Studer / Revox A721 & A710 tape decks to maintain the highest possible quality.

Azimuth allignment can be adjusted to suit your compact cassettes for maximum output quality.These machines can accommodate Dolby B, C and S formats. Digital noise reduction can also be introduced and further sound enhancement techniques can be applied as required. 



The Compact Cassette, often referred to as audio cassette, cassette tape, cassette, or simply tape, is a magnetic tape sound recording format. It was designed originally for dictation, but improvements in fidelity led the Compact Cassette to supplant the Stereo 8-track cartridge and reel-to-reel tape recording in most non-professional applications. Its uses ranged from portable audio to home recording to data storage for early microcomputers. Between the early 1970s and the late 1990s, the cassette was one of the two most common formats for prerecorded music, first alongside the LP record and later the Compact Disc.

Compact Cassettes consist of two miniature spools, between which a magnetically coated plastic tape is passed and wound. These spools and their attendant parts are held inside a protective plastic shell. Two stereo pairs of tracks (four total) or two monaural analog audio tracks are available on the tape; one stereo pair or one monophonic track is played or recorded when the tape is moving in one direction and the second pair when moving in the other direction. This reversal is achieved either by manually flipping the cassette or by having the machine itself change the direction of tape movement ("auto-reverse").
