saving raw dubs
This is something I've been thinking about as OTRR volunteers work through all these reels that we have purchased over the last year. In fact, Joe Webb and I were just talking about it a couple days ago. While we are currently saving the raw recordings while also making copies to clean, that does become a huge storage issue over time, an issue we really haven't come to a definite conclusion about. Not only are our files becoming larger in general as we migrate to lossless formats, trying to save a raw copy as well as a "clean" copy that most listeners prefer gobbles up space like crazy!

One aspect of digitizing historic media is the necessity to always preserve the originals as well as possible in case, in the future, better digitization may be possible. Although I certainly appreciate all the effort people have made doing this, there ae some digitizations which a so bad it is pretty obvious they could have been done better. One example is the us of noise reduction. As an audio producer for broadcast over my career I have learned that noise reduction is both science and art such that the same software in different hands can yield extremely different results.
It is also true that the process of retrieving audio from less than perfect media is lso science and art.
I urge anyone doing digital transfers to also preserve the originals for possible future restoration.

Something to consider for that - for long-term archival storage, anyway - is something like Amazon S3. Amazon S3 Simple Storage Service Pricing - Amazon Web Services
I'm in the process of backing up my OTR collection to S3 Glacier Deep Archive (in part because one of the drives in that NAS is failing, and finding a compatible replacement for a reasonable price is proving to be a bit of a challenge). The 1.6 TB that I have will end up costing about $1.60 a month.
