About Audio-Rescue

Every job is focused on archive and library needs: audio presentations in the academic environment and faith organizations.

We process audiotape only: audio cassettes, reel-to-reel, and digital audio tape (DAT).

We adhere to standard concepts of digitizing original audio for archive use. We supply these digital elements:

    • WAV file (CD Quality) unprocessed, as your preservation copy
    • WAV file (CD Quality) processed for best listening
    • MP3 file of the processed program
    • Metadata for your preservation and catalog use.


Sample Rescued Audio

In a special program with theological schools and archives, we have digitized and preserved more than 1,000 programs that can be heard on the site: SoundTheology.org. You are invited to visit that site and listen to the MP3s. Each of these programs was also saved as a WAV file for the originating institution, and sometimes also delivered as an audio CD. You can also hear some examples on our Sample Audio page.
