 Micro cassette to CD 

 

Micro and Mini cassettes can be transferred to CD with appropriate track points. Usually the quality of these recordings were poor due to the small dictaphone microphone and slow tape speed.

Shaw Sounds can transcribe these tapes to digital format enhancing the overall sound.

A Microcassette or Minicassette is an audio storage medium introduced by Philips and Olympus in the 1960's. It uses the same width of magnetic tape as the Compact Cassette but in a much smaller container. By using thinner tape and half or a quarter the tape speed, microcassettes can offer comparable recording time to the compact cassette. The original standard microcassette, the MC60, gives 30 minutes recording per side at its standard speed of 2.4 cm/s, and double that duration at 1.2 cm/s; an MC90, giving 45 minutes per side @ 2.4 cm/s, is also available from a few manufacturers. Unlike the Compact Cassette, a choice of recording speeds was provided on the original recorders and many others; the tape also spools in the opposite direction, from right to left. For transcription purposes, continuously variable speed was provided on many players.
