Audio Cassette Tape to CD and MP3 files

Convert Cassette Tapes to Digital Formats & CDs

Audio cassettes were one of the most popular audio formats a few decades ago. But no matter how much effort people put into a cassette tape comeback, it never seems to happen.

Two Squares provides the next best thing to a cassette comeback: audio cassette to digital conversions. Two Squares provides cassette tape to digital transfers for cassettes. Your audio can be converted to CD or MP3 format.

We use an extensive cassette-to-CD conversion process to preserve your music, speeches, sermons, wedding music, or other audio for many years to come. And after we transfer your audio from cassette to CD or MP3 formats, you’ll have a safe format to share and store your converted audio files.

How We Transfer Cassette Tapes to Digital Formats

Audio cassette tapes serve many purposes beyond the music albums on cassettes you or your parents used to buy. People used home cassette tape recorders to capture precious memories such as music and vocal recitals, wedding audio, speeches, interviews, sermons, or lectures.

Companies used to preserve cassette audio by dubbing tapes (copying one tape to another one). But there are two big problems with dubbing:

  1. The audio quality goes down a little every time you copy it.
  2. The new cassette tape will also start to degrade over time.

Transferring cassettes to digital formats helps you avoid damaging, misplacing, or losing your original recordings. And converting cassettes to digital formats ensures no lost audio quality, even if you make second, third, or further-generation copies.

Sample – No Digital Post-Processing or Digital Noise Reduction

This is an example of a voice recording taken from a 30-year-old audio cassette. It demonstrates a very low noise floor achieved through pre-process baking, a studio-grade deck, proper system grounding, power conditioning, shielded cabling, and other precautions.

We applied no digital noise reduction or any other digital post-processing to this example.

Sample – Digital Post-Processing and Noise Reduction

This example is instrumental music that was recorded off the radio 40 years ago to an audio cassette. It demonstrates the effects of our post-processing and digital noise reduction techniques. Please use high-grade speakers or headphones to best hear the difference.
