Hard Disk Recorder File Recovery

24 track Hard Disk RecorderFrom the late 90s to the mid 2000s (1996 to around 2005) all of the major pro audio manufacturers offered several standalone hardware multitrack digital audio recorders. Some had a mixing console "portastudio" form factor while others were rackmount units with more comprehensive I/O and internal removable hard drives. These were produced just after the peak of digital multitrack tape formats like the Alesis ADAT and Tascam DA88. Many systems used the popular and accepted SCSI standard, which was at the very end of its lifespan at the time. By the late 2000s many units would incorporate USB for transferring using standard file formats like .wav and .aif, and to the present day where these types of machines record on SD Cards. All of these machines predate technology such as USB and SD Cards.

We recover the audio files and digitally transfer multitrack audio from 24 track hard disk recorders including the Alesis HD24, Mackie HDR24/96, SDR24/96, MDR24/96 and Tascam MX-2424. The files are converted and delivered as individual .wav files so they can be remixed in any modern DAW. All hard drive (HD) file recovery/conversion is done in the digital domain, with no added analog/digital conversion for perfect 1:1 digital copies of your projects.
