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 Mini Disc to Digital Audio

Minidisc is a digital audio recording format developed by Sony in the early 1990s. The format features a minidisc recording disk (imagine a tiny Compact Disk). This is permanently housed in a square cartridge similar to a computer floppy disk.
The minidisk allowed for the digital recording, compression, and re-recording of audio information. It found wide scale popularity in Japan during the early to mid 1990s. 

Minidisc players allowed for basic recording and editing of audio information on portable devices. Minidiscs came in both recordable and pre-recorded formats which meant that they served as both a method of consuming audio and producing original audio recordings. The format was later discontinued by Sony in 2013.  View our full range of disc services which includes DVDs, Mini DVDs, CDs and even disc repair services.  

The Importance of Minidisc Transfer

Like many old recording technologies, minidisc formats become increasingly unstable and liable to decay as they age. This is particularly true for the minidisc due to its method of recording. This makes it susceptible to magnetic decay where contact with magnetic elements will severely damage or entirely erase the original recording. A great reason to not wait a second longer to convert mini disc to digital audio. 

The fact that minidisc players have been discontinued since 2013 means that finding working technology to use minidiscs is becoming ever more difficult. Add to this the fact that many older machines are also likely to have become damaged. These are likely to damage any disks played on them.

Safeguarding your Minidisc Recordings

The factors explained above mean that the digital convert mini disc to digital audio recordings made onto minidiscs is necessary to ensure the safety and playability of these recordings. At its high point, the format of player was considered to be a market contender to CD players, but unfortunately, minidiscs never became as popular.
