Andy Jackson Rescuing old analogue tapes (1/4 inch) (40) RE: Rescuing old analogue tapes (1/4 inch) 20 Jan 11


An interesting bit of inside info....
Any reasonable lengths of tape were joined up and sent back to reclamation unit. There they checked the tape and joined the lengths together with some sort of welding technique. These were then re-issued as "Rehearsal Quality". Occasionally the testing procedure failed and the odd length of leader in the middle was not unknown.

Suggest a new thread on "memories while we still have them"???
