If you have old audio recordings, you may be thinking about converting them to a digital format. There are numerous great reasons why you may still have your old audio recordings around, such as the nostalgic feelings surrounding these old recordings, or you may simply love listening to things in their original format. At the same time, you also need to take steps to preserve these audio recordings. Here at ARS Video, we can help you preserve your precious memories, and we specialize in helping people convert their audio cassettes to a digital format for easy storage. There are several key reasons why you should convert your audio recordings sooner rather than later.
Why Convert Your Audio Cassettes?
Your original audio recording is always going to be special to you, so there are several reasons why you should convert your audio cassettes as soon as you can. Some of the main reasons can include:
Potential Disasters Nobody wants to think about a tragedy that could strike their home. Unfortunately, there are several disasters that could happen without warning. This could include something as large scale as fires, tornadoes, or even as singular as a rodent infestation in your home. Your pet could even decide that your old audio recordings are great chew toys. If you only have the one copy, you are leaving that memory at risk.
Shareability Do you want to be able to share your audio recordings with other people? If so, then your best option will be to convert them to a digital format. Sure, you can always play the original recording for background at your home or office; however, this is going to limit the number of people who can hear it. If you are able to convert this recording to a digital format, then you quickly increase the number of people who can listen to it, and possess their own copy. Please note that this only applies to your own personal recordings, and does apply to recorded music or other audio that you have purchased, as it is illegal to share copies of those types of audio.
Planning for Obsolescence All physical media will age and deteriorate over time. All you need to do is take a look at old photos and compare them to new prints to see the toll years can take. The same is true for your audio recordings, and they are not going to last forever in their current format. If you want to make sure the recording is successfully preserved, you should convert it to a digital format.
Convenience Finally, if you choose to convert your audio recording to a digital format, it will typically end up being a more convenient option for playback. Playing a record or cassette tape is a process, which can certainly be enjoyed when you are taking the time to savor the experience, but other times we need to be able to quickly play back a piece of audio. In these instances, it can become frustrating to work with the machinery to hear the audio in question, and at that time a digital recording can be a great help.
