only available in 1/4" format and looks to be +3db bias tape. i've seen some hifi guys comment on it, but haven't heard any pros check it out. priced reasonably too.

i think it's manufactured by either Pyral or Mulann in France under the direction of the Splicit peoples.

Anyone try this yet?

Pretty wild to see someone else in the tape market besides RMGI and ATR.

Well the 930 looks like LPR35, so probably appropriate for 388 use...a few bucks cheaper too.

I have to assume that this is just white labeled from someone else, probably Pyral/Mulann, as you suggested. I would be surprised if it's a special formula made for them, regardless of what their marketing text says.. But either way, I would be willing to try it out if they want to send me a reel to demo...

it's not, i just searched online. Apparently same company that used to make Zonal, but making this tape to Splicit specs. So it's not re-branded.
