DAT Audio Tapes

When analog just can’t cut it…

When only the highest quality would work for your band, digital audio tapes were there to help. Now that DAT machines are hard to find, LA Video Transfer can help convert all your most important jam band sessions to CD or digital file!

DAT audio tapes were created by Sony in 1987 to replace those old, analog audio cassettes with a new, digital audio solution.

DATs were a popular, professional format which enabled higher quality recordings than CDs. Studios and independent bands began using the format as a high-quality master before sending them to CD distribution.

Once MP3 and iPods exploded on to the market, music lovers found themselves gravitating towards tiny, portable audio players rather than the inconvenient tape format. DAT machines were completely discontinued in 2005 and the countdown to the end of DAT audio tapes had begun.

Los Angeles Video Transfer Service knows ones and zeroes like an 80’s computer geek. Whether on a hard drive or magnetic tape, you can be assured we will transfer all your treasured high-quality tapes to uncompressed audio files or CD. We use professional grade audio equipment to provide the best fidelity possible.
