Welcome to Analog Audio Inc

About Us

A Little History...

  “A Passion For Analog” is much more than just a slogan. 


It is more of a way of life. 


We have nothing against digital recording. It has its place and properly  handled, it is a fabulous medium. 


But, it is NOT what WE do.  


As far as we are concerned, there is NOTHING like the sound of analog, especially sound that is recorded on tape!


You have to go back to 1965, when Analog Audio Inc President/Owner, Leslie Brooks  purchased his first audio tape recorder, and discovered his life-long  passion for analog sound. 


In particular music recorded at 15ips on 1/4" tape, considered the ultimate medium for the reproduction of recorded sound.


At Analog Audio Inc., our goal is to be

Safety Mastering - Protect Your Valuable Tapes

 Anyone who owns a computer knows the importance of “backing up”  their data. One false move and you can lose all your important files,  photos, etc. 

It is no different in the world of analog tapes. Engineers  have known this since the earliest days of magnetic tape. The accidental  slip of a finger with the “Safety” off on a tape deck can wipe out  valuable recorded material. 

A malfunctioning machine can stretch or snap  tape in an instant. To ensure the availability of recorded sound, high  quality dubs of important tapes were made to guarantee that if something  happened to an original, a back-up copy would be available.


A properly made safety copy is virtually indistinguishable from the  original. We use STRICTLY professional gear. Our MCI JH-110s  are the same machines on which tens of thousands of masters  were made back in the 1980s and 1990s. Our machines have been rebuilt  from the ground up. All audio circuits have been rebuilt to meet and exceed original factory specifications. This assures you the most audibly "perfect" copy that can be made.


Our services include the following to guarantee the best possible transfer:


  • Tape Reconditioning (Replacing old loose splices and damaged leader prior to dubbing)
  • De-hydrating (Commonly known as “baking” for certain tapes prior to dubbing)
  • Safety Mastering (Straight 1:1 high quality dubbing)


An Important Note!

Problem tapes like Ampex/Quantegy 406, 407,  456 & 457, Scotch 226 & 250 and similar formulations must be “baked” before ever putting them on a reel to reel machine. Running Ampex 406 before properly de-hydrating it can cause PERMANENT damage in the form of catastrophic shedding!


The cost for this safety mastering service varies based on several  factors including: the amount of reconditioning needed (if any), the  length of the original recording, the type of reel for the Safety Master  (metal or plastic), etc.
