Help? Looking for 16 track A>D conversion in Nashville

Hey all. It's been so long since I've been on this board, but always found great info and help here in past years. So here's the deal: I've been out of the audio world for several years now but I still have an Otari 16 track 1" machine at my place and a bunch of tapes I'd like to convert to digital ...

Recommendations for Tape>Mixer>A/D>interface/software

So let me start off by saying I have been out of the audio world for several years now but when I was in it I always found great help on this board. I'm trying to get my setup back and going, to mix down some unfinished sessions on my MX70 1", basically to have digital 2 track mixes so I can look in...

Ok thanks for the info, it looked vaguely familiar but I've been out of that world for a while now. Let me know if anyone is interested in it. May try eBay next.

Old Patchbay Assembly

Thought I'd cross-post this here in case anyone in the Nashville area was interested. I MAY be willing to ship but not sure it would be worth the costs to anyone considering the weight. Open to offers/suggestions. Thanks,

So it was brought to my attention that I way overshot my guess on what this is worth. Really couldn't remember what it was worth. I'd be happy to part with it locally for $30.

EMTEC 900 Studio Master 2" Reel asking $80 OBO

OK Tape Op people. I've been out of the game for a bit (3 kids, meager career, house, blah blah) and I'm clearing a few items that I have little use for. First up is a reel of 2 inch EMTEC Studio Master 900. I bought it used back in 2008 for a project reel when I had somewhat frequent access to a 2"...

Roberts 770X Questions

So after looking here and searching google, I can't seem to figure out if the Roberts 770x has 3 tape heads. What about vari-speed? I've been looking at these and wanted to use it for tape echo...and take advantage of the preamps when I'm not using it for echo. Any other thoughts on this machine?

reamp options

How much better is a reamp v2/radial Xamp (200ish) compared to the radial proRMP (100ish..anyone using this?). I'm on a tight, non-pro budget and the reamp seems to be in manufacturing limbo, so I'm tempted to grab the 100 dollar option, but wondering if I'll regret it later. I'm assuming the main d...

WTB: Reamp

I never see these for sale used.

Must be the kind of thing you never get rid of. Anyone want to sell one?

Apparently the Echo has spdif out (via some weird midi cable adapter) as well, so that seems to be a great option as I can still use pt7 and my mbox2 and only spend 200. Is the RME really 4x better? It costs that much more and I'm trying to make sure I don't want to save up OR just get the echo now....

IF I went the RME route, what are the best ways to get the digital signal into protools (with 9 as an option, since I might upgrade from 7)? I have an mbox2 with spdif, but is that butchering the signal from the RME somehow? Once its digital, its digital right? Is the AES via XLR better quality? CLE...

Thanks for the input, that helps. Anyone else have any good or bad experiences with Echo? Any feedback on RME A/D? Again, I'm mixing out of the box and need very simple "true" line-in conversion for my 2track mix that's not 2k. ...The more I look into this, the more I want to just mix to tape...but ...

I actually just noticed the Audiofire2 after my post and that sounds very close to what I'm looking for.

I'm on a Mac so the duet is also an option.

Anyone out there using either of these with pt 9? I suppose the RME via spidf would be close to the cost of the audiofire2 + pt9 update.

2 Channel A/D for mixing

SO I'm mixing from 16 track tape, through a series II soundcraft. Other than that, I have very minimal gear due to having a family and not recording professionally. I'm in the beginning stages of looking for a decent 2 Channel A/D to mix down to using Protools (I would also probably update to Protoo...
