I'm doing my best to assimilate all of the great posts on this forum! You guys are really great. I am looking to enhance my mastering setup by adding an 2-track tape machine, mostly for experimentation at this time. I want something that will eventually allow me to offer my clients a decent sounding tape saturation sound but I don't want to spend a fortune yet. I also don't want to dick around for hours trying to troubleshoot hardware. I currently have an opportunity to purchase an Otari MTR-10 1/4" (up to 30 IPS capable) machine in good shape for $2-300.00 from a local mastering dude. Any recommendations? Thanks!
