I recently came across a Sony 320 Tapecorder. It's a 1970s vintage domestic 1/4 inch reel to reel with built in amplification and speakers. The speakers have got those retro oval speaker cones and for mastering and listening to dub it cannot be beaten. By recording at 3 3/4 IPS with the VU meters rattling the tape soaks up the bass like a sponge. Its old enough to drive the cones fairly hard without blowing anything and the old school treble n bass EQ are great for dinky, bright snares and hi hats and for making the bass fart like a whale. My advice to fellow dubheads? Save your hard earned cash. Trawl junkshops for the oldest domestic hi-fi kit you can find. Overload your tape and remember, its that rich, warm analogue character, not crisp, cold digital definition that makes healthy, wholesome dub.

proffessional studio use digital device
you can own (if you search) old 2inch tape recorder for 1/40 his old price (I ve
bought a 3m m79 16tracks 2i. for only 1300euro)
you can make the vu meters mad, the sound
will be better for dub
your will hear your EQand effects has you 've never heard before ,the only problem is the weigth(250kg) aleph from france

Yes ,a 30 mm(38cm/s) tape is 215euro or$
aiiii!
Its about 4or5x more expensive than a 24b/96hz
recording on a hard disk and u can t over record
more than 4 or5 time....
but the sound...
Ì've saved 7 song from a digital foxtexd2424
and even if the sound was digitalised before
going in it , the songs are really more warmy
whith the same dynamic(is that english?(:-))
24 track machines are in the same 2"format
i don't think larger tape exist.

yes just to expensive them tapes. If you want that tape saturation.... just get a revox 1/2 inch mastering recorder to record your final mix.
