SHAW SOUNDS - Professional Audio Restoration Service

There are often times when audio needs more than simply the enhancements of mastering.
An old analogue reel, for example, or an album of which only a few vinyl copies exist; vintage material from 78's or even earlier formats. SHAW SOUNDS  are superbly equipped to deal with such projects - we have sophisticated restoration systems available including Cedar Technology with de-crackle, de-hiss & de-click algorithms. We have a full complement of vintage equipment for playback through 24-bit A to D converters for optimal transfer quality; our quest for " Reproducing the Best Possible Quality of Sound " have made us a respected and successful facility for restoration of audio projects of all kinds, from classical & popular music through to dictaphone messages for legal purposes, and delicate historic archive material. We believe restoration requires great sensitivity on the part of the engineer - just because we can remove the hiss in a recording doesn't mean we should , for example - especially if the recording looses "life" or "air" as a result. Similarly, many restoration tools involve quite radical processing of the signal - de-click systems are a good example - and can at worst damage the original material. An intimate knowledge of our equipment and it's capabilities allows us to avoid the pitfalls of the process. An experienced engineer develops his own strategies and methods - tricks of the trade, if you like - which, along with an understanding of  the needs of the material, help us achieve the best possible result. I'm often asked the question - "don't you get fed up with listening to music every day" ? "Not really, in fact the variety is one of the things that makes the job so enjoyable - it keeps me fresh - and of course every recording is unique in it's own way." Whether the recording is new or old you have to make the same judgments, work out how the producer wanted it to sound on the domestic systems of the time, and make it sound the same way on the hi-fi systems of today. What makes the back-catalogue so enjoyable to work on is that some of those recordings have such a great sound; a depth and realness to them that people find difficult to achieve these days on a commercial CD !
