Digitize audio tapes

1/4 inch audio tapes were very popular for recording audio in the 1950s and 1980s.

These audio tapes can be neatly transferred (made digitally) so that without a tape recorder you can still listen to the recordings and also prevent deterioration of the quality.

By default, we transfer every sound carrier supplied by you to a computer file in .MP3 format on USB stick / hard disk. The entire tape is transferred.


All prices include 21% VAT and are subjective to change.

The prices include:

  • Transferring files onto data carrier (USB/hard disk)
  • Downloading it via the internet (via a personal link)

Make available via internet

You will receive a personalized link with which you can download the digitized files. We keep the files on our servers for 2 months. They will be deleted after this period.

Put on CD

We can transferyour audio carrier into CD. You can indicate in which order you want your cariers to be put on CD and if you want more than one carrier on a CD or we can put each of your carriers on a separate CD. There is a maximum of 70 minutes of video on one CD.

Other codec

We can convert your audio recordings for all modern audio formats. We deliver your digitized tapes in the format: .mp3 by default. We can also deliver other formats if required, of course. For example, WAV, FLAC, OGG and AIFF.

Our process

Your material will be digitized in the best quality possible. By default we’ll be normalizing the audio level (for example audio that is recorded very soft will be brought to the right level of sound).

We digitize with professional AD converters and audio equipment in our own studio. The result is excellent quality.

Optional: after digitizing we can edit your audio. This could entail: removal of scratches and noise and/or making separate tracks.

Finally, the digital material will be put onto a storage medium like a USB stick or CD.

Frequently Asked Questions – Digitize Audio Tapes

Could I request a sample scan?

Yes, that is possible. You can request your free sample scan here.

When copying large files I get an error message

The problem when a large video file cannot be copied is usually that the file system of the hard disk or USB stick is still in FAT32 format. Files larger than 4GB cannot be stored on a FAT32 volume. Formatting the flash drive in the exFAT or NTFS file system will solve this problem.
