The audio restoration process

1. Digitising material

We’re used to dealing with audio on a range of formats, many of which are nearing obsolescence. The first stage is geting the audio digitised in the highest-quality possible.

If you haven’t yet done this, we can assist with getting your analogue media digitised in to a format suitable for restoration.

Whether it’s optical or magnetic sound on film, or various video formats, we can help.

2. Conforming & checking sync

Ensuring accurate sound synchronization in older recordings is a primary focus, given that discrepancies frequently arise from varying playback speeds and formats used in historical audio equipment.

With our extensive experience at detecting and rectifying these synchronization issues, we guarantee that your sound has the original timing, with no synchronization errors.

3. De-clicking, de-crackling & noise reduction

In audio restoration, eliminating clicks, crackles, hiss, and pops is crucial for enhancing old recordings. Using the latest technology and advanced methods to declick, decrackle, and reduce unwanted noise, restoring clarity while maintaining the original character of your audio.

4. Review & delivery

Once the work is complete, you’ll receive a link to review the results, as well as make comments for any alterations.
