Great Shout Of Thanks From BattleshipPretension Guys And Guest


As I mentioned in my previous blog about helping out the guys at BattleshipPretension, and they very kindly given me a great shout as a really satisfied customer.

The fixed1t 'Shout' is between 4 - 9 minutes but the entire program is really great and well worth a listen as Tyler Smith, David Bax and special guest  Actor Pat Healy get into some really interesting ;-) discussions.  Be aware there is adult humour and content.

Thanks fixed1t

fixed1t Audio File Recovery Service

All of us are using more and more digital audio recorders to record music, conversations, conferences, podcasts to name but a few.

We've also transferred our treasured analogue tape to digital format.

In the old days of tape machines, if there was a problem with a part of the recording you could literally cut it out and glue the bits back together so only the damaged section was lost.

But as an increasing number of people are discovering, if there is digital damage or processing damaged to a digital file, then it effects not only the few seconds, but possibly the entire file can corrupted making it unusable and the recording can be lost.

For those of you using Garageband who have discovered that Garageband randomly corrupts your recording on the Mac such that the iPad, Iphone or iPod touch won't open it, I created the 8-bit fixer:

However, since creating the 8-bit fixer I have been contacted by an increasing number of Mac and PC users who have stumble into the digital audio quagmire at crucial times in their projects and scheduling and I've provided help.  So I decided to create a new blog to advertise this service.

For those of you with damage beyond the scope of the 8-bit fixer, fixed1t has the tools, knowledge and experience to recover that which can be saved and if it can't be fixed then if agreed up front, I won't charge.

For those of you who have made and important recording and discovered that the background noise or tape noise make it almost incomprehensible or too quiet to listen too, help is at hand I can clean up and make the files more comprehensible.

For small jobs, I operate a 'Donate What You Feel Is Reasonable' scheme, when the file is recovered.  It's simple, you decide how valuable the service has been and how much time, effort and angst you would have gone through trying to recover the file, and make a simple donation or multiple small donations if you'd like.

In doing this I put trust in you.

If the job is larger I will happily look at the file(s) an give you an estimate of the work required and the costs.

So if you have a damaged digital audio file that refuses to open, or a digital recording of an old tape you would like enhancing then email:
