Also Bruce Brown will have a tape deck there in the Blue Light audio room (definitely a must hear room for tape heads as Bruce always has some tasty tunes rolling!).

Thanks Myles...   The Blue Light Audio room will have an ATR-102 and the Usher/JPS room will have a modified Studer A80RC MkII

Just wondering: couldn't it have been EQ'd out during mastering of the Tape Project release?

Yes, most of the time it can be without affecting the the frequencies around it too much.

Bag?? or do you mean bake? No, you should not bake acetate tapes.

You might want to check these forums. They seem to claim it's a -10db instead of a +4db mixer. As they say, XLR does not guarantee +4.

Also like the above post suggests... pin 3 hot.

I called them about the new decks and for a mear 6K I can have a new reel. I'll stick with my Tascam 38

For that price, you can pick up a mint Studer!

Miles Davis:  Sketches of Spain
Dave Brubeck:  Time Out
Pink Floyd:  Dark Side of the Moon
Pink Floyd:  The Wall
Led Zeppelin:  first album (to hear "Babe, I'm gonna leave you" on tape would blow my mind!)
Norah Jones:  Come away with me
Tori Amos:  Little Earthquakes
Patrica Barber:  Cafe Blue
Pearl Jam:  Vitalogy
R.E.M.:  Automatic for the people

I've remastered a few of these titles and all of my friends have been chomping at the bit to get copies. Unfortunately I can't sell them, but with great ears and equipment, have proven it is possible to attain sonics above an beyond what is currently available.

Ki...  you would be apalled at what passes for mastering studios these days.

There are people here in Seattle (that actually work for labels) that "master" in their bedrooms with computer speakers.

This has been an endless fight in online mastering forums. I think the best mastering rooms are from Gateway and Sterling...  The key ingredient in mastering rooms (besides the engineer's ears) are the room's acoustics. We spent a ton of money on our acoustics. Rooms are PRICEY$$ and not as sexy as rack of Neve equipment or a Studer A820 in the corner.

Does look like it has a great vibe! I wouldn't use it as a mastering studio until I made some changes. You don't usually see 16-24 track machines in a mastering room

Anytime Ki..  my door is always open! Make sure you bring some good tunes!
