Ellis Entertainment also offers the following media services:
If you've ever wanted to revive your treasured record collection, you can now enjoy your
favorite LPs again and again without any further degradation caused by analog
playback. As a professional DJ, it's only natural that I take great pride in my music.
I have many analog recordings that have been reborn through the process of digital
conversion. I can do the same for your collection as well.
Listen to these audio sample sets of before and after excerpts taken from LPs that were recorded and processed for CD burning:
The rates for this service are very reasonable and the turnaround time is 1-3 days
on average, depending on the quantity of the job. There is a minimum charge of
$15.00. This covers up to the first 30 minutes of total audio play time. A rate
of $0.40/minute is applied thereafter. As a reference, the rate to convert 1
standard LP at a total play time of 35 minutes is $17.00 [$15.00 minimum + $2.00
(5 minutes @ $0.40/min)] One burned CD is included. Additional copies are $1.50.
Each CD will come in a
paper envelope with a clear window. Affixed labeling is not included with this
service. The bulk rate of $0.25 per minute (after the $15.00 minimum is met)
will apply to quantities of 5 or more LPs.
The process of conversion involves several steps and here is a simplified breakdown of how it all works: First your original analog media is played in real time and recorded onto the pc. [Vinyl records are physically cleaned]. Next the recorded audio is trimmed of the inaudible segments or lead-in/out noise. It's then passed through digital filters to remove imperfections such as pop & crackle or hiss & white noise. Manual detection of unwanted bits or other errors are also removed or corrected. The volume of the recording is boosted to a standard level and the stereo channels are balanced as well. The audio is now ready for CD creation. Track points are marked and the CD is burned. Now you have your analog audio preserved in a convenient CD audio format! Rip it as MP3 into your pc jukebox or transfer to your digital music player and enjoy everywhere you go.
Audio restoration and enhancement of poorly recorded audio or damaged media
This is specialized and
requires additional time. The cost of these jobs will be determined upon
listening to the original source.
