Each recording is individually analyzed by a skilled audio engineer, and only corrections that act on the noise (not the music) are applied. If you are concerned about preserving the high frequency content of your recording, make us aware of this when you place your order. If your tapes, records or LP has absolutely no noise of any kind, use the "Transfer Only" service.
