Audio restoration / transfer / archive sub forum?

Hi there, can I request a sub forum for the following topics which are not actually mastering but related and in some cases entirely different:

Transfer
Restoration
Archival

Especially as archival (library, media archival in general, longevity) are often quite different disciplines.

I for one am especially interested in scouting some audio/media archive folks onto here to chuck words of wisdom and links at us and I don't think its really related enough to normal modern mastering practices.

Majority of the audiovisual restoration and archival specialists and organisations are on Twitter, members keep in touch via email and share knowledge at the various conferences.

Almost no one sits on forums, even the dedicated listservs and forums created by the various archival organisations are pretty much dead quiet, with posts months apart and usually posts are announcements (which are also cross-posted to Twitter).

Feel free to PM me, if you want some Twitter follow mentions.

I transferred 60 reels last week, doing a bunch this week and more next week. Transferring (and restoring clipped DAT transfers from the nineties as we speak) so yes it would be worth a try.
Let's see what the bosses think about it.

I too would like to have that type of forum. We are doing a whole lot of transfer work and restoration. Just finished 20+ concert tapes from the 60s and 70s. Audio tape transfers and mastering. Fun work and there is lots to do. Hope the Moderators will think about it.

Another one to support this sub-forum. My day gig is at New York Public Library's audio preservation labs. We've got virtually every audio format imaginable for the past 120 years.

Would be also interested, as I'm doing many Restoration/Mastering projects.

I've also been doing quite a bit of transfer and restoration work over the last few years so would be very interested in a sensible forum for discussions about this.

Here we go!

transfers, restoration, archiving with a bit of tables, cartridges, cutting reel to reeling for good measure. No heated debates or silly bickering allowed.

Hi Jeff, now this forum is live I'd love to know (in a new thread) about some of the Wire Recording work you've done if you would share?
