Advances in technology have pushed to make all things digital in recent years. However, at Wired Masters we are able to accommodate for a number of legacy production formats. These include ¼” and ½” analogue tape (along with a tape baking oven), 1630 Umatic, DAT, vinyl and even the trusty cassette of yesteryear. Our Studer A820 tape machine, in pristine condition, is regularly serviced and has been utilised to re-master hundreds of classic albums over the years including works by Black Sabbath, Free and Thin Lizzy.
At the start of our vinyl restoration service we employ a Lorimar vinyl cleaner, universally acknowledged by audiophiles as the leading mechanical vinyl cleaner. Once the vinyl is clean we can transfer the audio either flat, or through a combination of the studio’s outboard processors and be captured at up to 24 bit / 96 kHz. Each of the three studios are equipped with the latest restoration / no noise software, including Cedar and iZotope RX, to ensure the captured audio is devoid of any clicks, crackle, thumps and surface noise.
