If you are considering adding an analog multitrack tape recorder to your facility, you might be wondering which one to buy, how much to pay, and what is required to get it running and keep it running. Or, if you are already using an analog multitrack, you might want to determine if it is performing at its peak and if you can improve its performance over stock configuration.
This workshop includes a presentation, panel discussion, and question-and-answer period designed to help you answer all of these questions and more. The moderator and panel of industry experts will share in-depth information based on their wealth of hands-on experience with analog tape machine selection, acquisition, restoration, maintenance, customization, and optimization over a wide variety of makes and models.
