I charge 20$ an hour for large volume analog reel transfers. Cassettes are 15$ an hour. The cost for one or two tapes is much higher. This gives you one AVI file at 24 bits and one mp3 file. You need to provide an external hard drive for the files. Burning a cd is possible but costs 10$ each and usually requires splitting files due to 80 minute limit. BTW if you burn CDs try to avoid filling them up so that you have less errors. I am against optical media for long term storage.
