Life is a Compilation made on a Microcassette recorder

Remember when mixtapes were a thing? Before the world went completely digital and record collections became playlists? At Supaphoto we’re still living for that past even if we’re making use of today’s cutting edge technology.

We know the importance of the objects that we collect during our lives. The old box of micro cassettes with handwritten labels on. Labels which say things like ‘Gareth’s Dance Mix ‘87’ or ‘Wedding Vows’ or ‘First Words’. Our team truly believes that life is one big mixtape that we’re all collecting as we go along. The box of old micro cassettes in your attic are part of this. They contain memories which contribute to the greatest hits collection of our lives.

The problem is, the technology to safely play these recordings is becoming less reliable with every passing year. The cassette players become more likely to jam and the tapes themselves become increasingly fragile as they age. We believe that the best solution to this is to get digital copies of your old cassette player recordings. 

Micro cassettes are an audio storage format first introduced by Olympus in 1969. As their name suggests, the difference between micro cassettes and regular cassettes lies in their compact design. The compact cassette made it a popular choice for many smaller appliances including voice recorders, dictation machines, and answering machines.

Microcassette Conversion to avoid Degradation?

It’s a sad fact that many older cassette recorders become less reliable as they become older. This means that they are more likely to damage any cassettes that are played on them. This could leave precious memories trapped on old cassettes with no way to safely play them.

We believe that the best answer to this is to transfer your old micro cassettes into digital formats. By doing this you can be sure that your old recordings won’t be lost by an accidentally tangled tape in an old cassette machine.

The process is pretty simple. Once you’ve given us your mini cassettes our team of technicians will convert the tape recordings into digital music files (typically mp3 files). We think that this gives you the best of both worlds. You get to keep your old cassettes and the memories attached to them and you also get the ability to play their recordings without the danger of them becoming damaged.

Your Happiness Matters

If you are not satisfied with the results, nor are we. 
That’s the Supaphoto way

Here at Supaphoto we always keep one foot firmly in the past. We know that there is something special about hitting the play button on an old microcassette recorder and hearing the crackle it makes. Digital technology has smoothed most of these imperfections away in a move towards cd quality sound. Our micro cassette to mp3 conversion service isn’t about replacing the old with the new, but making sure that our memories are kept as safe as possible. 

Storage as you like it:

Not everyone’s needs are the same. Perhaps you’re wanting to digitally archive a large number of audio tapes as part of a historical conservation project. Or, perhaps you want a physical gift to send your loved ones for a special occasion. Whatever your needs, we’re confident our service can meet them.

Once we have transferred digital copies of your recordings we can offer them in a number of data storage formats. Popular options include CDs and external storage disk drives. Both these options allow for easy access to the digitised recording through most modern media players including PC, Mac, and DVD player.

Our service can also be combined with our photo printing packages to produce a truly personalised gift for the special people in your life.
