I have acquired an extensive collection of recorders and players over my career that enable me to recover and enhance historical recordings. I have recovered material from old tape recordings sent home from europe by world war ii veterans. I recaptured my father"s dental lecture from 1950. I have transferred music recorded by 60"s and 70"s era bands in basements and studios, recitals of childhood performances. I can playback nearly anything that was captured on Â¼" tape in any format or speed. Svs&m can retrieve audio from cassettes and even video from vhs or beta tapes and transfer to cd or dvd. This is not waxman"s film to video transfer, it is a critical service for select people who need to restore important personal memories. Think about saving valuable historical sound material before it disintegrates.
