do your digitizing with JC Recording? If you have looked around
this sight you have probably noticed that my primary business
is offering professional audio production services. I began doing
digitizing work for a project of restoring and remastering old
recordings from tape for a long time recording client. While I
am not able to offer as fast a turnaround with bulk quantities
that a business specializing in digitizing can, what I do offer
is the prospective and skill of an experienced mastering engineer.
Each album is individually analyzed and processed with the same
industry standard mastering tools I use on commercial albums.
If you are looking for someone to quickly turn a big stack of
albums into something you can listen to on your mp3 player at
a bargain price, there are many companies out there who do a fine

buzzes, and clicks. However,
I can also repair sounds from microphone clipping, sneezes, coughs,

CD – I work with both area and national CD duplicators to
be sure you can buy CDs for your project that will fit any budget
and desired number of copies. There are NO minimum orders for
professionally printed CDs. I will facilitate the duplication
and will mail either a CD master or upload a DDP image to the
manufacturers. CDs will then be sent directly to you upon completion.
This service is offered at no additional cost, you pay only the
duplication cost directly to the manufacturer.
Music Label – For recordings distributed by a record label,
I will work with them to be sure the material is delivered to
them in their desired format. Please provide the contact information
for your rep as well as project name. This service is offered
at no additional cost.
Digital/Online Distribution – Any file type (Mp3, FLAC,
ACC, etc.) and specification can be created and delivered to you
via download. I use professional encoding tools to ensure your
compressed files are of the highest quality and do not clip or
distort your material. I will also work with you to deliver your
music to online distributors such as iTunes and CD-Baby. See Intro
to Mastering for more information. This service is offered
at no additional cost.
For projects to be mastered by a dedicated mastering house, please
provide their information prior to beginning the project to be
sure the materials delivered to them meets their desired specs.
You are responsible for securing the mechanical licenses for materials
to be duplicated that are not public domain or your personal composition
and ensuring that you comply with copyrights. Even if you are
not selling the CDs or are a school or non-profit, you will still
need to obtain mechanical licenses when making multiple copies.
For digital transfers - Fair use allows you to make a digital
copy of your analog albums
provided that they are not currently sold in the format, you own
them, and they are for your
own personal use and are not to be sold or distributed.
If you have questions on copyright issues please contact
me, I have access to copyright attorneys
and would be happy to assist you.
