What Memories Are You Missing Out On?
"Back In The Day" reel to reel audio was used to record special events, especially because movie film rarely captured sound and most often silent film. Audio reels were used to record milestone events such as weddings, birthdays, holidays... whatever was important at the time. Odds are, you are not in possession of player capable of playing those reels, so those memories are locked away. Thankfully you can have your audio reels transferred to digital and share the past with your friends and family.
How Much Audio Do You Have?
Determining how long the records on your reel to reel audio can be a bit tricky. There are two factors that determine the length of the audio files, the speed the reels were recorded at & the size of the reel. The larger your reel is, the more feet of audio tape you have.
Reel to Reel audio can be recorded in using 3 different speeds, slow (1 7/8 inch per second), medium (3 3/4 inch per second) or fast (7 1/2 inch per second). The faster the speed when the reels were recorded, the higher the quality of the recording and the shorter the audio file will be. If a reel was recorded using the slowest speed, the quality will be lower and the audio file will be longer.
Reel to Reel audio reels come sized between 3-10.5 inches.

Like Audio Casette tapes, Reel to Reel audio can be recorded on both sides of the film. So even if you reel says that it is 100 feet, when recorded on both sides, you might have 200 feet.
Once converted we will edit the audio files to edit out static in the background and edit the beginning & end of each audio file.
Each side of the reel will be saved as 1 audio file.
