Half Inch 8-track reel-to-reel transfers to WAV files.
Creative Audio Works offers an audio tape transfer service that enables the transfer of ½” analog eight-track reel-to-reel tape to high-resolution digital audio files, with or without DBX noise reduction. You will receive eight separate wav files at 96K/24bit resolution, one for each track. Our process utilizes a custom head arrangement, which was expertly crafted by John French of JRF Magnetics. This unique setup replaces the erase and record heads with rollers, resulting in reduced drag and pitch fluctuations, specifically wow and flutter. Our transfer service is available for 1/2 inch Tascam 80-8, 38-8, 48-8, 58-8, and Otari 8 track formats.
