What brand/type of tape are the TP releases on???
« on: July 10, 2008, 06:09:20 PM »
I don't see this mentioned anywhere.  Just curious as to what type they feel to be the "best" at quarter inch that is still "obtainium" today.....

The TP tapes are recorded onto RMGI 468.  Here's the blurb from US Recording Media;

This was the original response to this inquiry:

Craig,

We will be duplicating on RMGI 468, at least to start.

It would be prohibitively expensive to make a subscriber's tapes on any tape stock other than the one we're set up for. But we aim to please. If someone prefers a different stock and is willing to pay the premium...
