Mike, given the quality of the originals, I think your proposal sounds

Subject: [bct] Archiving very old cassette recordings

I have many cassette tapes that are over thirty years old, and I want to

digitally archive them.  Since I only want to archive them for now and
the postprocessing work later, I am wondering what people would
in terms of format, sampling rate, etc.  Most of the recordings were
on an old Sony monaural recorder.  Some of the recordings of radio
were done using a patchcord, but still monaural.  Could I get buy with 
recording everything in MP3, perhaps at 192 KBPS and 32kHz mono 
sampling?  Like I said, the originals aren't high quality, but I'd still

like to enjoy the digitized copies of them for years to come.  I will
the archives on DVDs.

Thanks for any thoughts, Mike
