Don't let your tape collection be ravaged by the hands of time -- convert your tapes with the Ion Audio Tape Express cassette-to-MP3 player! From the original mass productions of the 1960s to the boom of releases during the 1980s golden age of Walkman, cassettes were once an industry standard. Admit it -- you've got a backpack full of them collecting dust in a closet right now. Your favorite tapes are all prone to degradation -- dust, dirt, moisture, and even normal playback degrades your recordings with every listen and every year. Archive your analog cassettes by converting them to digital files with the Ion Audio Tape Express and rediscover your old stash!
Powerful Simplicity: It's Easy to Convert Your Old Tapes
The Tape Express has a user-friendly interface to make dubbing easy and bulletproof -- there's no need to be an audio pro. Built and housed in an authentically retro case, it functions much like the portable tape players of yesteryear. Portable, durable design makes taking it on the go simple -- enabling you to play and transfer anywhere with ease! Simply insert your favorite tape (an old band rehearsal? A favorite album you forgot about?), connect to your computer via USB, fire up the included EZ Tape Converter software and play as usual.
EZ Tape Converter Software Included
Ion's bundled software guides you in transferring your recordings, and encodes your music to digital MP3s with iTunes integration, allowing you to tag and categorize an entire collection in…
a breeze. Hit play and walk away -- the software automatically detects and catalogs the end of each track while the automatic reverse feature switches playback direction at the end of the first side, making the archival process truly foolproof. EZ Tape Converter rips your recordings through hiss reduction technology, subtly cleaning up distractions in fidelity.
Power via USB or AA BatteriesThe Ion Tape Express is powered via mini-USB when in use by a computer, or by 2 AA batteries when you're out and about. Basic transport and gain controls are located conveniently at the top of the unit. Or, forgo transferring entirely and use the included audio output jack to listen on your stereo, headphones or other speaker systems just like a regular cassette player. Support for both Chrome and Normal cassette types are included by using the onboard selector switch.
An incredibly easy and wonderfully painless way to convert your old cassettes, the Ion Tape Express transforms an otherwise arduous backup process into a speedy transfer. Its no-frills design in both recording and playback makes this analog-to-digital dubber a fantastic choice for its price point.
