Why should I digitise my microcassettes?

The sooner you transfer your microcasssettes to digital and CD the better. Transferring your Microcassettes to digital and CD protects your cherished music and audio recordings that are encased in your fading Microcassettes.

As well as making loads of storage space, you can put your trust in a format that will never degrade and won’t put your cherished memories at risk.

Converting Microcassettes to digital and CD also allows you to relive your old music or recordings on your computer, laptop or your mobile, so you can take your memories with you wherever you go.

The best way to convert microcassettes 

Converting microcassettes domestically is tricky because it requires specialist equipment and know-how.

Not only does EachMoment use the highest resolution conversion equipment, far surpassing the low-quality conversions you get with often expensive consumer-grade equipment, we will also clean your microcassettes. This ensures they are restored for improved playback in your Microcassette player – that is if you still own one!

If you have any microcassette tapes or any old video, photo or audio formats that you’d like preserved on CD or digital which are accessible on your smartphone, TV and computer, we will collect them from your doorstep, convert them to digital and return them to you in one of our Memory Boxes, ready to be gifted or kept personally for years to come.

Why wait? Convert your microcassettes to digital now!

Once these steps are complete, your Microcassette is fully converted to digital and CD, giving your audio a new lease of life. It’s now time to relive your newly restored audio memories. Preserving your precious memories and gifting an EachMoment Memory Box to a friend or family member is an especially touching way to remind those closest to you how much you care about them. Whether it be a birthday, Valentine’s Day or Mother’s or Father’s Day, the memories enclosed in an EachMoment Memory Box always make the most thoughtful gift.

A Brief History of Microcassettes
microcassette and recorderThe Microcassette is an audio format developed by Olympus in 1969. Although they use the same width of tape as their predecessor, the compact cassette, a Microcassette is half the size but offers similar recording time.

Although Microcassettes were mainly used in dictation and answering machines, they were also used in the recording of music and were popular amongst concert and festival goers as they offered a more discrete method of recording compared to bulkier compact cassettes.

Olympus tried to cash in on the emerging Walkman market with their SR-11 microcassette player but failed to effectively rival the hugely popular Phillips cassette Walkman and were slowly phased out. Microcassettes, however, are still used in underground and experimental music circles because of their lo-fi quality and are still produced worldwide by a handful of manufacturers.
