    I'll record a friend next weekend and just found out that there is no 456 anymore in town, I'll have to use GP9 or cancel the session cause I can't get my machine rebiased (a fostex g24s, 1")

    What will happen if i'm using the wrong tape? I'm recording something noisy, ambient, so I don't need super clean sterile sounds

    any advices? thanks

    Go ahead and do the session .... btw you will be able to hit the tape a little harder ...

    I doubt you will notice any problems. Technically spaking, it would be better to re bias and calibrate the machine, but not doing so will not cause the end of the world.
