Have had an unbelievable experience with Creative Audio Works. Bringing a dead project from 2003 roaring back to life in 2020! Amazing! Thank you, Stewart!...Craig S,  Bi Janus

Any musician with analog tape and wants them converted to wav files, "Creative Audio Works" is the place to go. Highly Recommended! Terrific Job... Joe R.




Stewart and CAW were personal, responsive, and the turnaround was fantastic. The resulting files were easily transferred to me and payment was quick and easy. Couldn't recommend CAW more - and that's great to be able to support our Massachusetts businesses. Mike Ladd

Reviews of our Audio Transfer, Restoration and Mastering Services

Anne T.

Stewart has just completed two projects for me. He transferred a moldy and scratched 1940s 78 record to CD, and transferred a collection of eleven 1940s 78 jazz records to CD for me. I am delighted with the results- Stewart carefully cleaned the records, eliminated the scratches and background noise, and the CDs all sound fantastic. Stewart even designed CD labels that echo the original record labels. It is amazing and wonderful to enjoy the beauty of this music after all these years. Stewart is a true professional and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. I highly recommend his services.

The McCormack Family

Thanks so much for the quick turn-around transferring my Mother’s 50 something-year-old audiotapes. The sound quality of the CDs was terrific. We now have a family treasure we can share with all those family and friends who loved my Mother and miss her singing. The joy these CDs have brought us is immeasurable. We’re so glad we found you. Best wishes,

Steve T.

Stewart has been a part of our team for many years. We have worked together for almost 20 years for both our local and location production sound. In recent years, Stewart has been of service as an audio expert for creating enhancements, restoration, and conversions of audio that is less than optimal. He is a professional with a personality that understands the needs of our clients and reflects the quality that is expected from any RAMPION team member. He is fully equipped for any sound or audio challenge.

I would highly recommend creative audio works to preserve your old reel recordings.  From shipping to communication to the flawless finished product, they were a pleasure to deal with.  Good price. Fast turnaround too!  I just got back a little of my youth.  Thank you!
