Recommend Tape to Pro Tools Transfer in LA?

I may be working on a project that will require transferring original 2" masters to Pro Tools in the upcoming week or two. Does anyone have a recommendation for a place in LA that has a good reputation? My normal guy isn't available right now unfortunately.

These are old tapes and I'm not sure of how they were archived so the tapes may also need baking...it would be nice if it could all be done at the same place but I'm open to suggestions there as well.

Thank you!

Hi Steve

I can bake and transfer 2" 16/24T tapes. I'm in Orange County, about an hour from LA.

Multitrack Analog to Digital Transfers

Only problem is that I'll be out of the country until 14th July.

David, thank you for your reply, I actually saw your excellent site when I was researching. July 14 may be too late but if it comes up after I'll let you know.

Geoff at Tim Jordan will do a wonderful job on the transfer. They're now located in West Hills rather than N. Hollywood but the contact info still works. Does great work.

We do lots of baking and transfers here at Capitol. Give Paula or Mark a call and they can give you rates.

Penguin Studios in Glendale (i believe) did a transfer for me few years back .. old Alice Cooper Concert Recording to go along with 35mm transfer to Digibeta ... great job, 2nd would be Tim Jordan - geoff helped me over the phone to Align an Ampex machine .. really great guys ...

Capitol would be a fun experience ... a friend was getting his mastering done there ... you cannot go wrong with any of these .. just your budget ..

cheers and happy transfers john

Thanks Steve, I was at Capitol a couple years ago. My buddy, David Iscove, was doing archiving and he took me through there and introduced me to Paula. We all know the history of Capitol but aside from the obvious everyone there was incredibly cool.

Throwing our 2" reel into the ring so to speak.....

Why not do your transfers where all the Beach Boys tapes including Smile and Pet Sounds were archived (and mixed), Your Place Or Mine Recording in Glendale.
