If you can make it fun, then do it. It was fun to use the 238 recently and I get it. Between Tape Op and Pro Tools I’m sick of computers.

Re: An Analog Setup for My Needs (Tape Machine Talk)

I'm with Eric. I've been through the valley of overbias. I own 3 or more tape decks right now, and the reason the main 3 are Otari is that they are like Toyotas and keep running.

Re: Adding Center Detent Pan Pots to a TEAC Model 1 Line Mixer?

That's so true about center detent never being "true". I've talked to people like Dan Kennedy at Great River about this in depth. The only way to get true center is to hardwire a "pan cutoff" like I have on my RND 5088 console, but removing the pan bumps the ch level up 3 dB!

Re: Sytek no longer making the MPX 4aii?

Re: Dear larry

Dear Nathan,
I forgot we let that go. Yeah, I'm a total fucking jerk now. All my friends have stopped calling or coming by and I hang out with a bunch of angry biker/pirates and we steal candy from small kids while shaming them on social media.
