used analog tape
thanx to who replied to my question about different analog tapes.
I have a couple band coming in short after the machine will be installe, and they would liek to use used tapes. They have found them at an pro-audio dealer, and they have been told there there are no edits on the tapes.
I don't really know nothing at all about used tapes. I just don't knwo how much you can reuse a tape (even teorichally).
What I have to do. Please....they claim that brand new tapes would be too expansive for'em.
P.S: 2" inch tape...the one they found is 456 and I think a couple 499.
BTW, the machien is a Lyrec TR532 mkII and will be calibrated for 456.
I have one reel of 499 staring at me for a couple years now. Where are you located?
