Sussex University's Massive Collection of Bob Copper's Priceless English Folk Music

We were so proud to have been chosen by the University of Sussex to digitalise and convert their priceless collection of beautiful audio reel to reel magnetic recordings from Bob Copper. We’ve also scanned hundreds of images from Sir Richard Attenborough’s photo collection which he left to Sussex University. 

Bob Copper, who has died aged 89, was a leading member of the famous singing Copper family of Rottingdean, East Sussex, and an important collector of English folksongs. His earliest musical memories were of sitting around the fire singing with his father, Jim, and his grandfather James Copper, who was born in 1845.

Convert Cassette Tape to Digital With Supaphoto


We all have stories to tell and somewhere in the attic or at the back of a dark cupboard most families have ancient audio cassette tapes hidden away in dusty, old suitcases with precious and irreplaceable recordings of their family, friends and loved ones.

More often than not, these tapes, photos and videos are the only copies in the world – the only versions you’ve got to hang on to if you want to keep hearing those beloved voices from the past. But imagine if you were to lose them. Your treasured family memories would be gone forever! Have you ever wondered if time is running out and you need to digitalise from cassette to CD or cassette to USB?

These might be of a wedding, a christening or even a piano recital, all happy, joyous events family members love to recall. Or maybe someone was trying to put together a family history for future generations that included Grandma and Grandpa’s moving reminiscences of life during wartime or Dad’s crazy demo tape, unforgettable for many hilarious reasons, when he had big hair and used to be the singer in a heavy rock band. 

The trouble with ageing cassette tapes is they don’t last that long – 30 years if you’re extremely lucky and you’ve been keeping them in ideal conditions free of UV rays, excessive heat and humidity. Just like humans, cassette tapes get increasingly fragile and brittle with age, until it’s time to look for a better way of storing your memories. That time is now. We are here to help convert your cassette tape to digital formats.

Enhancements and Audio Restoration

If your tapes need an improvement to lift the quality of the sound, there are many options that we can offer. 

We can adjust the frequency balance of your audio using the an equalization effect to  improve overall clarity.

We can reduce background noise and hiss.

Compression can help control loud peaks and boost softer passages, resulting in a more balanced sound. Normalisation helps ensure that the overall volume is optimised without causing distortion.

If the volume is too low – we can amplify it too. This can be useful for bringing up the level of a quiet recording or adjusting specific sections.

It’s also possible to correct pitch issues or adjusting the speed of your recording.

Cassette Tape Repairs

Got tapes that need some love and attention? Cassette tapes can experience various issues over time, but there are several common repairs you can attempt to restore them. Keep in mind that cassette tape repairs require a delicate touch, and success may vary depending on the extent of the damage. Here are some common issues and potential repairs:

Tape Jam or Tangling:
We’ll gently open the cassette shell and manually untangle the tape. Be careful not to touch the tape with your fingers, as oils and dirt can damage it. Use a pencil or pen to turn the cassette reels and wind the tape back into the cassette.

Splice Repair:
If the tape is physically broken, we can repair it by splicing the broken ends together. We’d typically use a small piece of clear adhesive tape to join the broken ends, aligning the magnetic tape carefully. We also use cassette splicing kits available for more professional repairs.

Warped Cassette Shell:
Sometimes the cassette shell can become warped or damaged. If the shell is not severely damaged, we may be able to carefully reshape it. If it’s beyond repair, consider transferring the tape to a new cassette shell.

Dirty or Oxidized Heads and Rollers: 
Dust, dirt, and oxidation can affect the playback quality – in such cases we’d clean the tape heads, pinch rollers, and capstan with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab. We’d be gentle and avoid using excessive force.

Stretched Tape:
The tape may become stretched over time, affecting playback quality. Unfortunately, stretched tape is challenging to fix. We can try winding the tape back into the cassette carefully, but there’s no guaranteed solution.

Mould on Tape:
Issue: If the cassette has been exposed to moisture, mould may develop on the tape. We have a dedicated treatment for this If the mould is extensive, it may be challenging to salvage the recording. 

Whatever we do , we’d always handle cassette tapes carefully,
