RESTORING MUSIC

Audio restoration is the process of removing imperfections and noise in sound recordings.  Kog combine years of experience with a range of super fancy software to help get the cleanest and clearest audio possible.

 

Whether it be a restoration of an old vinyl records not currently available in digital format, old family tapes, field recordings for TV, or forensics work we have had our share of experience in bring stuff back to useable life.

 

Our biggest projects include the restoration of 40 of New Zealand's classic albums from the pre CD era that have previously been unavailable.  

Artists such as Shona Laing, Sharon O'Neill, Farmyard and The Mockers. Some of these records were covered in mould and mildew!

We did our best to capture these for the future.

 

This involves extensive cleaning and then sampling in the vinyl at HD quality, removing the clicks, the low frequency rumble and noise that may have been introduced during the lacquer cutting or pressing and finally laying up the vinyl in correct current format for CD, HD releases and of course 'Mastered for iTunes' release.
