Prerecorded Tapes / Poll: what format would you prefer for new tapes?
« on: March 16, 2013, 10:10:53 PM »
In response to a question posed by one of the members of the Yahoo reeltoreel group, I've posted this poll. I thought the 3000 members of the group could provide useful information.

Input from members of this group would be appreciated as well.

Prerecorded Tapes / RCA FTC-2049 liner notes needed
« on: June 17, 2012, 07:50:29 AM »
Does anyone have a copy of the liner notes insert for RCA FTC-2049 Julian Bream Guitar Concertos? (This one contains the great Malcolm Arnold guitar concerto.) A xerox copy would be appreciated, and I would be happy to reciprocate with liner notes you might need. Thanks in advance. Michael

Prerecorded Tapes / The Shins revisited
« on: June 07, 2012, 06:24:25 PM »
A friend of mine heard the CD of Port of Morrow playing in a record store (he had previously heard my tape) and said the album sounded great. Out of curiosity, I hooked up my dbx II decoder and tried the tape. To my surprise, it sounded "normal," with full bass, clear highs, and wider dynamic range. The playback decoding control was set about 1/3 of the way up. Is it possible that this tape was duplicated from a dbx-encoded running master? Today, I heard "A Simple Song" from the CD on radio and it also sounded fine. So something was obviously screwed up in the duplication ... a member on another list thought the dynamic range of the tape was "about 5 db."
