IMPORTANT NOTES

WE COPY AND TRANSFER THE DATA YOU GIVE US, PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT THAT MEDIA RECORDED MANY YEARS AGO WILL SOUND LIKE THAT RECORDED BY THE HIGH QUALITY AUDIO EQUIPMENT OF TODAY - THE DIFFERENCE CAN BE CONSIDERABLE.

WE DO NOT DIGITALLY REMASTER, EDIT OR RESTORE THE AUDIO WITH A STRAIGHT TRANSFER, PLEASE ASK IF YOU NEED THIS EXTRA SERVICE.  IF THE SOUND HAS BEEN RECORED AS ONE LONG TRACK THEN THE COPY WILL SOUND THE SAME, THE TRACK EDIT COST (£1.00 PER TRACK) INVOLVES PUTTING THE TRACKS IN THE CORRECT ORDER AND TRANSFERING TO CD WITH THE USUAL PAUSE BETWEEN SONGS,

IF THE MEDIA HAS BEEN DAMAGED IN SOME WAY THIS MAY NOT ALWAYS BE APPARENT.  IF POSSIBLE, WE WILL TRY AND IDENTIFY THESE ISSUES AND SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT IT FIRST.  FOR OBVIOUSLY DAMAGED OR FOR BLANK MEDIA, WE WILL RETURN THE TAPE AT NO CHARGE.

 

*Audio Tapes are magnetic media, which after many years is liable to degrade if it is not stored well, particularly if it comes in contact with moisture or has been stored near hi-fi speakers. 

If it is possible to take copies from your media we will, but we can not be held responsible if any damage has occurred and the audio does not play quite as expected, e.g. fluttering or glitches in sound. If it sounds to us as though there has been obvious damage to the media, TechnoVisual don't carry out any tape restoration and so in this case we prefer to hand the media back with no charge.

If you prefer to hear an MP3 of the audio first before we transfer to a CD, please let us know.

** Very short run tapes may be charged according to the time taken to process them, generally we charge a minimum of £10.00 per tape.  We will consider discounted prices for larger quantities.

***By accepting our terms you are stating that you own or have permission to copy the material provided, and indemnify TechnoVisual against any action including copyright infringement.
