Open 1/4 inch audio reels to CD or MP3

We transfer your 1/4 inch open audio reels to CD or USB

4 Track Audio Reel to CD
We digitally capture and restore your magnetic audio reels, then transfer them to CD. If your reels are torn or mould damaged, we can even repair most of them FREE of charge.

Reel-to-reel or open-reel audio tape recording is the form of magnetic tape audio recording in which the recording medium is held on a reel (rather than being securely contained within a cassette). In use, the supply reel or feed reel containing the tape is mounted on a spindle; the end of the tape is manually pulled out of the reel, threaded through mechanical guides and a tape head assembly, and attached by friction to the hub of a second, initially empty take-up reel.

Please let us know if you would prefer an MP3 conversion – there is no extra charge for this.

Placing an order
To place an order, visit our Gravesend office, drop your tapes in to one of our drop-off points (MaidstoneTonbridgeAshford, Folkestone, or Ramsgate), or post your tapes to Media Transfer, The Maltings, 56 Bath Street, Gravesend, Kent DA11 0DF. Return postage is FREE if you only require the CDs or USB returned. Otherwise, see our list of return postage costs here.

If you have 10+ reels and live in the DA, ME, Kent TN, BR, and some RH postcode areas, we now offer free personal collection AND delivery of your reels. Just give us a call on 01474 569 390 to arrange a collection.

Please call us on 01474 569 390 if you require more information on any of our services.

History
