Title: tape to Cd or USB.
Post by: Hector on April 27, 2019, 11:40:55 AM
I have just come across an old reel to reel audio tape that I would like to transfer to a USB drive  (or maybe a CD.  Either way I would like to have the content to hand).  I have a small device to transfer compact tapes, but not a reel to reel one at a recorded speed of 7.5 ips.  Anyone got any ideas?

Hector - there is surely someone in the UK that could do this ? How heavy is it ? I've seen record decks for sale that transfer the sound to a stick - maybe unlikely you can get the same for the long gone reel to reel function . . . ATB

Looks like it can be done.

There are a number of companies that can do this in the UK, and on balance you might be better served by packaging it and posting it to the UK for transfer (what you lose in postage costs may well balance against the exchange rate difference!), see http://www.audioreunited.co.uk/r2r.htm?gclid=CjwKCAjwnMTqBRAzEiwAEF3ndiyrBga_ZWFBIwAu0ZgOrGZElyneczdXkZJv9bKJaitbfaJ-OLsHDRoCXdoQAvD_BwE (http://www.audioreunited.co.uk/r2r.htm?gclid=CjwKCAjwnMTqBRAzEiwAEF3ndiyrBga_ZWFBIwAu0ZgOrGZElyneczdXkZJv9bKJaitbfaJ-OLsHDRoCXdoQAvD_BwE) for example.

Many thanks all, I'll have a look.
