Transfering Records in reverse

I was given a 78 to transfer. When I transfer something one of a kind I do 3 passes. The first is dry, dusted as the client delivered.

The second is wet (Ultrasonic bath if possible)

The third is in reverse. I find it cuts the pops and skips differently. EX: if you have a scratch in one direction it MAY not show up in the reversed transfer. Edit together and whadaya get… bitty bopity boo.

  • Here is the same scratch forward (top) and transfered in reversed and reversed in PT (Bottom)

  • I use a Stanton STR8-100 with a SPDIF out. It has a button that simply reverses the direction of playing, it is rock solid. It’s got the direct drive faults, but non the less sounds great.
