Marion Used conversion services for tape to CD? (9) Used conversion services for tape to CD? 20 Feb 07

Hi gang. I was wondering if anybody has used a commercial service for converting audio cassettes to CDs, and if so, if you were satisfied with the results.

One company that I'm looking at is here: Vintage Media.

(I know that there are plenty of threads on converting tapes to CDs, but as far as I could see, they were all about using software to do this at home, and I don't have a computer at home).

One concern that I have is this: this cassette four-track is what I do have at home (and microphone). I record onto type II cassettes, which allows me to use two tracks, but I don't seem to be able to use four tracks or to do any mixing with just this machine (so I have to balance the volume levels of the two tracks by how playing at the appropriate volumes).

Anyway, the tape that I sent in to be converted would be a type II with two unmixed tracks on it, which I doubt is the norm. Do you foresee a commercial service having any trouble with that?

Thanks, Marion
