Reading a few posts on here, I'm wondering whether it's worth some of the more tape experienced guys having a whole analogue tape machine discussion at a user level. I was going to post a load of this on the "TASCAM 32 Alignment in MA" thread, but it looks like Hasbeen is going to get a tech to do his machine. Bo looks like he's about to get into it on the "diy align / cal" on a budget. Sooo, is there anyone who wants this to happen, cos we could unite these two threads and get whole load of info up here. I volunteer to make an idiot of myself by posting first and letting the people who really know what they're doing correct me . But maybe it is unneccessary: in which case will someone please post something relating to Grandmothers and eggs. Matt.
