noise. Shifting all of your collection to digital memory will save a lot of storage space and halt further degradation of
the sound. Bring your laptop (with Windows 7, 8 or 10 only and mouse), turntable (or cassette player) and a
favourite recording. Our tutors will guide you, but you will need basic computer and file management skills! Tutors:
