Rate Overview

There are a lot of variables involved. 

  • What kind of source and what condition it is in. 

  • Whether you want one set of digital files provided or to have me burn/load the files on multiple CDs/data disks/devices.

  • One file per side of your record/tape or all the tracks separated into individual files to make them individually selectable in your player. 

  • Whether you just want the files or a raw CD with hand written information on it in envelope or you want printed label(s), printed informational insert(s) and/or jewel case(s).

Those are just main possibilities.  Every job is unique and some prove to be "uniquer" than others.. 

$25 per hour for:

  • Conversion time from source to digital files, providing the files via the client’s preferred method (ie burned on a CD, loaded on a data disk or a device, emailed as attachments, etc.).

  • Burning/loading additional CDs/data disks/devices

  • Designing labels and/or printed informational materials

  • Printing and applying/inserting labels/info materials

Material costs vary with quantity for:

  • CDs or data disks

  • Labels and/or printed material

Minimum invoice $15 for time (material costs not included)

To discuss the art of the possible please contact me via either: admin@intentionalcommunityprojects.com or 250-920-4160 (9 to 9 weekdays)

"My success is measured by your satisfaction"

In general the conversion of a single cassette or record will cost between $15 and $30 for the first set of digital files, or first CD, depending on what we agree to and any unexpected challenges that come up in the process. 

Converting from multiple original sources on any one job will, of course, reduce the setup and post-conversion time investment and, therefore reduce the cost somewhat for the first sets of files or the first CDs.

Once you have a set of digital files you can, of course, create as many copies of them as you want for yourself and if you can burn/copy CDs you can make as many copies of them as you want.  If, however, you want me to burn the files to CD(s) for you each copy after the first have an additional cost depending on quantity.

Recommendation

If the tape or record you want converted was a commercially issued one I recommend that you google the title and/or artist to see if it has been re-issued on CD before you contact me. If it has buy that version.

My conversion will result in a digital file or CD that is at as good as the sound on your analog source and perhaps, in some cases, a little better. A company re-issuing a tape or record as a CD in the expectation of selling a reasonable number of copies will, on the other hand, be able to bring sufficient time, expertise, high-end equipment and financial resources to the project to be able provide you with a substantially better reproduction at a lower cost. 

If you can't find a suitable commercial alternative I will happily do your conversion for you.
