Non-vinyl audio sources for RTR
« on: January 26, 2007, 06:59:29 PM »
As a newbie, I've been looking for non-vinyl sources of audio to capture with my reel to reels and am interested in learning what other folks are capturing.

Other then pre-recorded rtrs', the only other sources I've found so far are Wolfgang's Vault (http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/) and KEXP (http://www.kexp.org).  I'm not sure exactly what format Wolfgang's streaming is, but I don't think its' MP3 and KEXP has streaming, uncompressed audio.  Granted, their digital, but they sound great when "calmed-down" by the tape medium...
Studer A810 and Otari MTR-15...Klipsch CWIII's, KG2's & RF7's

Truth is a kind of error, so vaporize it to find your way to heaven, or at least to a smile...

There is a long tradition of home r2r enthusiasts recording live broadcasts from FM radio. Some cities had high quality FM broadcasts live from the concert hall or ballroom, or occasionally from a recording studio. Sorry, I don't know of any currently being broadcast in the SF Bay Area. KCSM does have a show on Suday evenings called Sunday Night Suites that broadcasts location recordings of jazz made specifically for that show. They're good, but they are still recordings, not direct live feeds.
