Why we recommend Audio CD over MP3 files?
Because Audio CD gives you the very best quality from your analog tape
than any other compressed digital audio formats.

You can keep the audio CD as the original sound source, and if you need to,
you can change to whatever a format you want (such as MP3, AAC or WAV) by your self.

However, for your convenience, we are offering MP3 conversion with the same price for audio CD.
You have a choice of either audio CD or MP3 with the same price.
If you want both audio CD and MP3, there is $5.00 extra charge.
If you want us to write the MP3 files on a flash drive, there is a $9.95 charge for a brand new USB flash drive.

 

4.

The file format on the audio CD is .cda, which is a shortcut of CD Audio.
Audio CD(.CDA) is an uncompressed digital audio file.
Compared to other compressed digital file such as MP3,
audio CD is the very best digital audio quality possible converted from analog tape.

 

5.

If you want to Edit the file, like cut tracks, you can do so with many free digital audio editor.
Audacity is one of the very popular ones.

Micro cassette tape is used for phone answering machine, dictating machine and mini voice recorder.


Price

Our price is very simple and straightforward. All inclusive except tax.
No Scanning fee or Transfer fee or Output fee nor Media fee or etc.

Charge will be made based on Actual Recording Time of a Micro cassette tape.
A Micro cassette tape with actual recording time is shorter than 60 minutes: $15.95
A Micro cassette tape with actual recording time is longer than 61 minutes: $15.95 per an hour.

Note: Micro cassette tape recorded in LP mode
Micro cassette tape can be recorded in LP mode which makes its recording time double the time of what is
written on the tape.
ex. MC-90 tape can be 1.5 hour recording (SP mode) or 3 hour recording (LP mode).

No quantity discounts due to intensive handling care for Micro cassette tapes.


Note:
1.

Micro cassette has two recording speeds.
SP mode: Standard audio quality
LP mode: Low quality, long play mode.

they were developed for phone answering machine tape or dictating machine, not for music,
Therefore, generally speaking, the sound quality is not as good as regular cassettes.

When the music CD is inserted, iTunes will automatically open and start playing.

You can import the songs to iTunes library and synchronize it with your iPad, iPod and iPhone.

 

Can you put a cassette tape in to my iPod, iPad or iPhone?

Unfortunately we can't, because it has to be done through your iTunes on your computer.
Apple treats iPod(or iPad, iPhone) as a player, not an archive device.

However, once your cassette tape is converted to an audio CD, transferring it to iPod is very easy thing to do.
Here is how to do it:
Put an audio CD into your computer (PC or Mac) > open iTunes > import disc > synchronize iTunes with your iPod, iPad or iPhone.

To learn more about transferring an audio CD through iTunes, please go to Apple's tutorial site.

No.
There is no charge for a blank tape.

 

What format of music file am I getting on the CD?

.cda file, which is a music audio CD format.
Music CD(.cda) is huge in file size but comes with much better sound quality, compared to compressed MP3 or AAC.

You can easily turn it into MP3 or AAC file by a drag and drop into iTunes.

More details, please read here.

 

Why do you recommend Audio CD, not MP3 files?

Because Audio CD is much better quality than MP3 files.
Please read here for the reason.

 

Can you transfer a longer than 1 hour cassette tape to a single audio CD?

No we can not.
Theoretically a regular audio CD cannot record longer than 70 minutes, because
Audio CD format (.CDA) is an uncompressed, 44.1k, 16 bit stereo audio format,
there is no room for compression.

There is a trick called "Over-buring" which enables to burn(= make) a longer than regular CD,
but the CD created with this trick is not a standard CD anymore.
It might or might not work on your system.

There are some longer than 80 minutes commercial music CDs in the market.
They are using a different type of CD(larger capacity CD) which is not available for burning.

 

How long cassette tape can be transferred to a single audio CD?

60 minutes (practically up to 70 minutes).
A longer than 60 minutes tape will be converted to two audio CDs (side A and side B).
The price is still $15.95 for a set of 2 CDs, same as a 60 minutes tape.

iTunes shows weird CD title when I insert the audio CD in.

Depends on your iTunes preference setting, you might see a strange music CD title pops up when you insert an audio CD.

You might see a music album title that has nothing to do with your original audio CD.
For instance, iTunes will give a Heavy Metal Music title to my grandparent's interview CD, and
next you insert the same audio CD, iTunes will give you a totally different music title.

We all know this is a annoying function for a private made CD.
There is nothing we can do to prevent it.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the audio CD we made, either.

This happens only when your iTunes' s "Automatically retrieve music name from internet" option is checked.

To solve this problem -
You simply disable this function by going Edit > Preference > General > un-check this option.

 

 

Transcription service - Can you make "print" from cassette tape?

Unfortunately we are not offering transcription services.
Please Google search with "Transcription service, your area"
