hi, 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. thanx ronnie P.S: 2" inch tape...the one they found is 456 and I think a couple 499.
