Audio Archiving and Restoration Services

Audio archival and restoration service is the process of removing or correcting imperfections (hissing, crackling, buzzing, etc.) from sound recordings. Over time, analog and digital audio mediums degrade, causing small defects to the medium. Audio archival and restoration includes everything from physically cleaning the audio medium to digital intervention.

The Process

At Creative Audio Works, we are experts in audio archival and restoration services, including the migration, and restoration, of analog audio to digital formats. We have a wide range of vintage and modern machines for the transfer of records (16, 33.3, 45, and 78 rpm), Audograph discs, micro-cassette, cassette, DAT, ADAT, mono, 2-track, 4-track 1/4″ reel-to-reel tape formats.

Whether you have one family recording that you’d like to hear on CD or a library of recordings that need restoring, your audio will be treated with the same one-on-one approach. Every audio artifact is unique and deserves the respect and attention of a skilled audio archival engineer.
