    1 : I got a guy that comes in to use my equipment 2 days a week...we have an RC-848 for the da-88's/38's. This guy NEVER uses rewind, fast forward or locat, instead he shuttles back and forth using the shuttle wheel...
    I am SURE this is not healthy for the machines...am I paranoid?

    2: is it possible to change the sample rate of these machines if there is NOT a tape in them ? I use my 88/38's as converters, so need to switcvh between 44k and 48 k often...thanks guys !

    #1. He's causing head wear.

    #2. Keep a 44.1 and a 48k tape handy. Just pop the appropriate one in and out before your session. This will have minimal head wear impact.

    Exactly what Bill said.

    Is this guy trying to destroy (sp?) your studio?
    The remote has some nice locatorpoints. He shall use 'em or stay out of the room.
