I am working with two libraries to digitize their audio content. The audio
is now in quarter inch tape format for the most part.
I understand that, for spoken word recordings where absolute top quality is
not a requirement but digitization is, that there are 1/4" machines that play
at higher than normal speed, making the process of transferring a great many
tapes more cost-effective and less time-consuming. Could anyone recommend
what these machines might be and how much time they save.
I would also love help and a recommendation regarding the best organizations
to work with if I have to outsource much of this work.
