Hi,can anyone give me any info on a Melos Tape Echo.I know it has an 8 track cartridge in it but thats all i know.I have just bought it on Ebay but not yet delivered.In the 60's i used a Dynacord for recording and for the last 20 years have had a Roland RE 501 that now has a motor problem.I bought an Akai Headrush to replace it but i cant play the same without the sound on sound
i've just got a melos echo chamber from a friend, with a (defective) cartridge - so i'm looking for those as well. <BR> <BR>if it helps, the defective cartridge is (indeed) an apollon "recording tape", type "HD 5000".
I have a melos tape cart. It's brand new and I've been trying to buy a melos echo to put it in for years. I used one years back and it was nice but then I'd never heard a space echo back then! Joy division used one to process their Arp Omni. Would anyone wnat to sell the unit to me?
I also am looking for a spare cartridge , but mine is for a univox 80 . There is a dictaphone cartridge that is very simialar that was used in another unit and I have heard it works in a univox ,so maybe that would work in the melos , but those also are about impossible to find
Can anyone help me with a schematic for a Melos tape echo.Mechanicals and heads are OK but no echo signal coming back.Probably a simple problem on the circuit board.If anyone has a schematic please email to me at <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a> <BR>Many thanks,Karl May
Hi. Anything about Melos echo chamber tapes? I have a Melos with a tape also but the tape broke somehow and i couldnt work out how to re thead it. either some help with rethreading or somewhere to get a new tape would be awesome. thanks.
I have a Melos too with a worn out apollon cartridge. The problem with this cartridge is not the tape itself, but the two pieces of foam beneath the felt strips in the cassette on the head locations. The foam desintegrated due to age, thus not pressing the tape on the heads. <BR> <BR>I refurbished the two foam pieces but I did not manage to get the tape back in correctly. <BR>Somehow the tape does not peel the bottom part <BR>from the carrier inside and got stuck. <BR> <BR>I'll try again with a clean fresh piece of tape <BR> <BR>I also pulled the PCB because I thought it was an electronic problem, and put it on scanner and did a partial redraw of the schematics. <BR> <BR> <BR>After some measurements I found that it was working correctly. The tape not passing correctly along the heads was the real problem.
