Compact Audio Cassette

A format of the early 1960s, the compact audio cassette was hugely popular due to its highly portable nature. Consequently, there remains a great deal of content that still exists in this format today.

Thankfully, TownsWeb Archiving’s compact audio cassette digitisation service uses experienced technicians who are experts in restoring and converting all variations of cassette tapes to digital, converting files into digital formats such as .mp3 or any other industry standard you require. Turning your cassettes to digital is a prudent step, protecting your material from permanent loss or damage and making it quickly accessible.

TownsWeb Archiving also offers an automatic audio transcription service, ideal for cassette digitisation. These files can be turned into typed text to make them searchable by keywords.

Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

As standard we can provide:

  • 24-bit/96kHz Broadcast WAV files (high resolution master preservation copy)
  • MP3 files (lower resolution access copy, ideal for use on the web)
  • Most other industry standard formats you may require.

All content is captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.
