High-grade audio digitising from just about any legacy format, is another service we offer. Whether it’s from a standard audio cassette or reel to reel, Crystal Mastering houses one of Australia’s largest collections of audio playback equipment. All transfers are carried out on only the best studio grade machines, as well as being captured on archival grade converters.
The engineers at Crystal Mastering are well versed in the use of all analogue playback equipment and are thorough in the calibration and set up of all transfers. We operate to world’s best practice and adhere strictly to the IASA technical guidelines. Our technicians can also enrich digital assets by adding accurate and detailed metadata.
Not only can we digitize your audio assets, we can also improve the quality of the source material through digital restoration processes or full re-mastering. We are also happy to digitise multi-track recordings and organise the re-mixing and mastering.
We have tape machines that cater to all playback speeds; from 15/16 ips all the way to 30 ips. We also have a wide selection of track widths. From standard stereo playback, through to 1/4 track and mono.
