Workshop: W19 - "Help! I Have a Tape Recorder!"—Restoration and Rebuilding Analog Tape Machines

A new generation of engineers, musicians, and audiophiles are discovering how the analog recorders from the “good old days” are helping them get a better sound or get that “analog sound” into their recordings. At the same time at the other end, archivists, preservationists, remastering engineers, and high end audiophiles need to know what’s involved in taking care of these machines. This workshop will discuss the various options for these folks when they look for purchasing, maintaining, restoring, and using these recorders. During the workshop discussion, we hope to show examples of tape recorder repairs and restoration and have a running Q&A session.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Archiving Restoration and Digital Libraries
