New photos at Sonicraft
« on: June 17, 2011, 09:24:58 AM »
  Steve Puntolillo updated the Gear/Tech Info page at his Sonicraft A2DX website, including some new photos of his amazing machines. Definitely worth a look.

Very cool Tj!

The dedicated "cleaning machines" and the use of battery power throughout the studio is super interesting.
Thanks for posting this.

Wow!
That is the coolest collection of machines I have seen. Are they used for making original recordings as well as transfers? Pity if they are only used to play old tapes...

   I believe the main focus at Sonicraft is tape to digital transfers; I've had the opportunity to observe a few sessions and all were playback and digital capture. Steve is a perfectionist and his lab, as well as the machines, are as clean & tight as they appear in the photographs.

  You should see 'Phatzilla' in person....it's one heck of a rig........
