Transfer Audio Tape, Minicassette, Microcassette to CD or MP3

Transfer your old audio tapes to CD or MP3 digital format.  Like all magnetized tape formats audio tapes will begin to fade over continued use.  Cassette tape decks are becoming harder and harder to find so transfer your audio tapes to CD before it's too late.

I have used your services many times and I just wanted to say thanks. I recommend Chroma Services to everybody that I meet.

Sending us your Tapes

When sending us your audio tapes please make sure to properly package them in a box in bubble wrap and try to avoid using packing popcorn. Also shipping using a tracking number is highly advisable. Please do not use UPS ground as their Rates for Customs Clearance into Canada are excessive compared to other couriers. If you can, please use the United States Postal Service's ground shipping as their rates are the most reasonable. To make processing your order easier please label your tapes and include detailed instructions on what services are being performed on which tapes. Turnaround time is about 1 week from the time we receive your tapes but larger orders may take longer .  Once the conversions have been finished we will notify you and provide a return tracking number.  Rush orders are also available but are subject to a 15% fee.  If you have any questions at all do not hesitate to Contact Us .

So why CDs?

  • No rewinding!
  • There is no magnetic coating that can wear away with each use, which is the case with tapes.
  • Track points (bookmarks) allow you to skip to certain audio tracks instantly.
  • Quick forward/backward scanning and searching.
  • CDs take up less space than audio cassette tapes.
  • Since a CD is digital, any copies are exactly the same as the original with no loss of quality!
  • If handled properly (like a DVD), a CD can last over 100 years!
  • For the reasons above and many more, CDs are becoming the mainstream, and audio cassette tapes are becoming obsolete.

Don’t let your memories slip away. Transfer audio cassette tape to CD or audio tape to MP3 and have them preserved for a lifetime!
