Our audio transfer services in Minneapolis will have you saying "No way did that sound come from that old recording!"At Immure Records, we focus on the removal of imperfections (such as hiss, crackle, static, unwanted background noise, and buzz) from sound recordings while keeping the integrity of the original sound source intact.
For converting cassettes to CDs, our Minneapolis team uses modern audio restoration techniques performed by digitizing an audio source from analogue media, such as vinyl recordings, optical sources and magnetic tape.
When it comes to archiving and restoring vinyl we use the best analog to digital converters, perfect sounding preamps, and every vinyl is matched to one of our many different cartridges and stylus for the best possible capture. This part is very important that many people just do not do. We never use one "general purpose" needle for all records. Our cartridges come from many manufacturers from Shure to Clearaudio. This may seem trivial to some, but this step is one of many that makes people come back with more records.
Once in the digital realm, recordings can be restored and cleaned using dedicated, digital processing units such as declickers, decracklers, dehissers and dialogue noise suppressors. We use state-of-the-art hardware and software, along with years of experience, to remove all unwanted noise from your recordings and bring back the dynamics and feel to the sound you expect. Whether you want a CD or you want to transfer your cassette to MP3, our Minneapolis team can handle it.
Here at Immure Records we do not believe in "straight transfers" of recorded audio. Every piece of audio gets full attention to preserving the details and dynamics. If your audio was recorded in 1916 or 2016, the end result is your recordings will sound amazing. This is why we do not have confusing pricing or different packages. We want all audio coming into our facility to leave sounding the best it possibly can.
We restore a wide variety of analogue recordings from vinyl records (33 1/3, 45 and 78 r.p.m.), cassette tape, microcassette tapes, 8 track and 1/4 inch reel to reel (3, 5, 7 or 10 inch reels).
All transferred audio includes:
Yes, you read that right. Some tapes may deteriorate because of a breakdown in the binder (the glue) that holds the oxide particles on the tape. That binder contained polyurethane that soaks up water and causes the urethane to rise to the tape's surface.
The surface of the tape has become gummy, and it sticks to the heads and fixed guides of the tape transport, squealing, jerking, and, in extreme cases, slowing down or stopping the tape transport.
This problem is known as the "sticky-shed syndrome." Baking the tape temporarily restores the tape by driving the water molecules from the binder so that it can be safely transferred.
We have baked hundreds of tapes over the years, so no need to be concerned. We have the laboratory oven and experience to get the job done correctly. Our cassette tape to CD Minneapolis transfer service will leave your audio sounding like the first time you listened to the tape.
We have mastered songs and albums for many artists and bands including: Bill Lordan (Gyspy, Robin Trower Band and Sly and the Family Stone), Tony Sandler, Leave the Universe, Sandler and Young, Pamala Stanley and many others.Mastering is an essential step in the production of any professional song or album. A properly mastered album will sound good on whatever sound system you are listening through. Mastering a CD before it is pressed insures that the music will sound consistent with other commercial music.
No matter where you live in the world, Immure Records can master your project(s) over the Internet or through the mail.
