Machine had fault were 50 V fuse kept blowing. I think that was loose reel turntable causing the Reel drive to crossbar the supply, whenever it got out of step. That sorted, but now unable to align the Audio.
Unable to get any change in adjustment parameters in Level, hf for Repro Sync and record. All speed, All eq.
BUT can control bias level.
It was storing tape position. ( Latest test, seem to indicate that no that is not happening, but unsure about the reliability of this test).
My fear is that it a faulty MCM2802. eeprom chip.
Does any one have Bin likes for Studer A807 mk 1, current version installed was 40/87, but can change to later version if available.
I dug my B77 half track out of the closet this morning.
All is well. I spun an old 2 track master on it this afternoon and to my ears, everything sounded fine, although I might give her a going over for bias and alignment this weekend, just to be sure.
(what I found funny and was pleased with is that all my edit points held. That tape is probably 25+ years old, and all the cuts held up.) (y)
The UAD Studer A800 has seen a lot of hype in the last few months and I thought I'd make it easier for people to evaluate its sound by offering a comprehensive set of sound clips. Please listen to 96 sound clips here:
anyone rated the Studer A800 tape machine PLUG IN from universal audio? i know it more than likely never sounds like the real thing...but at least a rating? thanks.
I spent the morning playing with the demo of the http://www.uaudio.c…"]UAD-2 Studer A800 plugin [/]="http://www.uaudio.c…"]UAD-2 Studer A800 plugin [/]. For those who don't know, UAD-2 plugging s require you to purchase a UAD-2 card to run them. They use the DSP power on the card and therefore don't tax your computer's CPU.
Hi! Anybody knows the quality of these amps? Are they real Schoeps CMC 5?
I just have an used (but in good shape) Studer A807.
Today I have recorded some music to test it and I was very surprised to hear how good and different the sound was!
I did an CD audio extract of a song in Sounforge, then recorded the same track into the Studer through my cheap Tascam M30(without any EQ) and sent the tape into Soudforge.
Then I created a project in Cubase SX and listened to the 2 versions.
The difference was enormous, maybe because the studer had the benefit to have a mixer in front of it?
I have a Studer A807 and I need to replace the pinch roller because the old one just "melted" and thick sticky rubber ran down the front of the machine whilst it was in storage.
Can anyone explain this?
I haven't put chemicals on it and its just a mystery to me.
