Transfer Your Digital Audio Tapes (DAT) to CD
Back when audio cassettes were cool, DATs ruled the recording studio. Providing 48k of pure audio sampling bliss, they were the mastering format of choice for many a project. And while the sound quality was incredible, it's often hard to find a way to play back these high quality masters. But the solution is close at hand. Transfer them to CD.
CDs provide several advantages. They make it easier to jump to a particular song when you are listening to them and you can play them literally anywhere, which is more than can be said for those old DATs. Granted, you'll have to suffer with the CDs lower 44k sampling rate, but could you really tell the difference anyway?
