The transmission of playback techniques to younger practitioners has become increasingly difficult in the often isolated archive environments. This is addressed in Recommendation 1.8 of the NRPP: “Documentation of Legacy Technologies: Research, collect, document, and preserve information on legacy recording practices and technologies,” which specifically recommends to “initiate a program to videotape interviews and demonstrations by senior audio engineers.” The Association of Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) Technical Committee will introduce its efforts in this regard, initiated through support from the National Recording Preservation Plan and others.
