Hollywood, CA (May 26, 2021)—United Archiving, a division of United Recording in Hollywood, has launched a video series on the preservation, management and income-generating potential of valuable audio assets.
With 35 years in the industry as a Grammy-nominated recording engineer and mixer, chief engineer Bill Smith is proficient in caring for, reviving, reconditioning and restoring audio assets, as well as computer-based data tape systems. In the introductory 3-minute episode, he explains, “Archiving is extremely important for many reasons. First off, you are preserving your music and recorded history and can be confident that you will never lose your assets due to degradation or aging.
“You can also take those assets and repurpose them into modern day usage for Dolby Atmos mixes, 5.1 mixes and stereo remixes with high-resolution delivery capability. Audio assets can additionally be utilized for sync licensing opportunities for film, television and commercial usage. Proper archiving opens up numerous possibilities for a wide array of potential income streams.”
Upcoming episodes in the United Archiving video series focus on the archiving process, technology, gear, analog machines, digital machines, noise reduction, Pro Tools, computers, digital convertors, synchronization, monitoring and tape baking.
Smith’s experience in archiving individual tape catalogs for such artists as Natalie Cole, preserving and organizing extensive record label libraries, as well as his depth of knowledge and hands-on approach are key to United Archiving’s reputation.
“We’ve been working here at United on archival projects for some of the most well-known names and artists in the music industry,” Smith adds. “However, we don’t only cater to major artists and record labels. Our facility is open to anyone who needs transfer or archival work done with the highest quality available, exceptional service and professionalism we are known for.”
