DAT (Digital Audio Tape) Transfer to CD Service
We offer a high-quality DAT also known as Digital Audio Tape transfer service to CD, we never transfer and convert straight to CD or files as this can produce poor results. We use a Sony DTC-750 D.A.T recorder, the signal is passed to our computer using the optical digital out connection to offer the best transfer possible. Once we have your DAT tape captured, we will use the latest restoration software to reduce any background noise that can make your DAT tapes sound annoying. Although DAT tapes don’t produce analogue noise when being recorded, however, if you have transferred audio from Record or cassette then this will contain noise.
As standard, we will provide a single track for the DAT tape, we do offer an optional track splitting service. Before transferring your DAT tapes we will inspect them for any damage that may cause issues when transferring.
Once we have converted the transferred audio we will convert it to the required audio file format of your choice, if you have requested a CD we will export it as WAV files before creating your CD to ensure your CD is the highest quality possible. As standard, we will capture your audio at 16 bit 44.1 kHz as this is normal CD quality and will cause no issues with loss of quality when transferring to CD.
As standard our CDs come in a slimline jewel case with a title printed on your CD, we offer a few upgrade options such as track splitting, track listing inlays as well as additional editing services if required. The cost for track splitting is £5.00 per DAT tape, track splitting is possible as long as there is a gap between tracks.
If you would like us to create an inlay showing artist/band, title and track listing we will be happy to create this for you at a cost of £5.00 per DAT tape, when choosing a digital file option your tracks will be named with title and track name. We can also offer more advanced audio editing starting from £30.00 editing can include but is not limited to levelling audio, de-Essing, De-Clipping, De-Rustle, De-Hum, De-Wind and general editing such as cutting out parts of the audio.
