    Hey Guys,

    Whose 1/4" tape is the best product on the market for mixdown? (Cost is not an issue).

    And............... do you prefer studio quality or master quality?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Sincerely,

    Rod

    Not seems, not at all. I've had a bunch of blank reels, not so many now that i've taken a look. Now my analog machines are worth less than they were before. I guess if I hold on to them for another 20 years, maybe they'll be back in vogue. I'm really bumbed about quantegy, just as i was starting to see an increase in projects printing to tape.
