|Mediocre sound is the enemy - and the enemy deserves NO MERCY!
|If you happened to visit the "My Music" page on this website, then you already know I write music and
have decades of professional recording experience. What you probably don't know is that I played all the
instruments and sang all the vocal parts on every song, and that the entire CD was produced on the exact
same equipment I'll be using to record YOUR music - yes, the equipment that helped earn these awards!
I have used and repaired sound equipment most of my life. Whereas most other companies simply run an
8 track player through a computer (thereby transferring the hiss and noise with the music), I have a full
recording studio with digital AND analog processing equipment. Many services have computer software
to reduce noise and enhance the music but, frankly, I never use it because outboard analog equipment
sounds so much better and preserves the original texture, flavor and ambiance of older music.
But the trick is knowing how to use and set up the recording equipment. Being a certified audio
technician and a former veteran Avionics technician, I worked on complex circuits and elaborate systems
every day on the job. Monday through Friday, I kept planes flying safely. Recently turned full time thanks
to YOU (!), I'm performing top notch work in the audio field, for customers and businesses nationwide.
My lifelong love for music and electronics combined with my very colorful professional background
enables me to deliver the very best PROVEN AND GUARANTEED recording quality, for roughly the same
price as you would pay a company with a home computer and an old JC Penney 8 track player. I can
transfer your cherished memories and favorite music to - or from - any of the following formats:
8 TRACK - CD - MP3 - WAV - VINYL - REEL TO REEL - CASSETTE
Prices: $30 per tape, or $20 each for 10 or more.
For transfer to cassette, please add $2 per tape.
|Long ago, the music industry didn't use computers.
I earn my living helping you find that sound again.
|The best sound of ANY
|"All right - what about radio jingles, do you do those too...hmm??"

|Rate of $30 per tape includes return shipping, paper CD sleeves, blank CD's/cassettes,
tape repair and return, and backup mp3's sent to your e-mail address ahead of shipment.
WE ACCEPT ALL CREDIT CARDS, CHECKS AND MONEY ORDERS (No PayPal, sorry)

My focus and expertise are in FANTASTIC SOUND, and FANTASTIC SOUND ONLY. We don't make labels, type out track listings,
transfer album art, provide jewel cases, etc. A true, professional sound engineer places all his emphasis and focus on the
sound of the music itself, and leaves the other stuff to other professionals - and that's what I do here. Your prized 8 track
material will be transferred to CD with the best possible audio quality - and with minimal digital processing, thereby preserving
that wonderful, warm analog sound. Ask other services about their knowedge, credentials and processing techniques!
|Rekindle your romance with the warm, analog sound without the hiss and noise, or
preserve your very important family memories with the service you can trust to recover
the original material safely and professionally - send your work to BARRY'S 8 TRACK REPAIR !
|Sure! Thanks to Eric at WSVN Radio in Chicago for inviting me to compose and produce their STATION
IDENTIFICATION jingle, which is still played on the station at least 3 times per hour.
|Samples of my transfer work
|Here are a couple short music clips. On both of them, the FIRST half is what you'll get from
other transfer services - then halfway through the clip, MY production takes over:
|On the left is my super -pro
Audio Technica "cassette recorder",
and on the right is the finest
stand-alone NOISE REDUCTION
unit ever made - literally called the
KENWOOD AUDIO DE-NOISER,
which provides adjustable levels
of noise reduction controlled by ME.

|This next sample is from a job I completed for a 60's band called the Hudson Bay Company, who released
6 sides (three 45's). I was asked to transfer their studio masters (recorded at Universal Studios) onto CD's.
After 40 years the masters have suffered somewhat, but you absolutely MUST hear this fantastic band!
|Ask other transfer services about their equipment, knowledge
of sound and methods of recording. I have recorded, mixed
and produced a CD which earned 5 Billboard awards !
|For the sake of your cherished memories, let a music
industry professional transfer your material to CD for
guaranteed best sound quality using THIS equipment:
