    tape baking
    Kyle P. Snyder 08/03/11 08:35 AM, 8 Comments
    In late 2008 I was called out by a friend to repair a Studer tape deck; an A827, which I had never used before. While I was very fortunate that the studio owned both the original alignment tape and tentelometer, the original (rather aged and unused) tape shed like crazy because of its storage conditions, and our inability to bake the tape before use. Baking has gotten myself and many a colleague out of a sticky (ha ha) situation. However,… View this post

I’ve given this a lot of thought and have come up with what I think are the reasons, but be aware, they’re not all exactly what the popular wisdom assumes. So let’s begin with the six reasons why the album format has,… View this post
