Re: Tape to digital transfers

It’s like little milliseconds of like a slight drop in db and it’s really audible to me. I can get an example up online but don’t want to post here publically

Tape to digital transfers

Hi all,

I’m going from 1/4 inch tape to digital to prep for mastering.

I’ve got some glitchy tape in parts and I’m freaking out. I’m wondering if it can be mended in mastering or not?

Thanks

Re: Mastering from tape to digital rig question

The signal chain would make sense if the A80 was a multitrack machine. Then mixed down to a B67. If the A77 is a standard high speed version then it should work fine with a pair of unbalanced phono to TS jack cables. This will give you the most accurate version of the sound on tape. Adding the Aval...

Re: Mastering from tape to digital rig question

So the revox is in perfect working order. And I have tested all the tapes. I recorded the mixes onto the 1/4 through a studer b67 from a studer a80. Everything was calibrated and I did check all of the tapes/ cleaned them in between mixes etc. I was going to go from the revox as a sound source to th...

Re: Mastering from tape to digital rig question

Yes, not surprised as they were more compact and much lighter than the Studer equivalents. I believe their much greater portability and general audio quality made them popular for location live to stereo concert recordings on 10.5" reels. Alfred Brendel used an A77 to listen back to his practi...

Re: Best Mastering Software For Ease of Use

Both Izotope and Wavelab are very good. I use the standard version of Izotope and I also have the Elements version of Wavelab. If you’re not planning to produce CDs, you don’t generally need to put metadata into the digital files and you can avoid the complexity of DDP authoring. For streaming serv...

Re: How long do speakers last, and are modern ones better ?

My main monitors are a pair of passive dual concentric front-ported Tannoy DMT 10s that are now 25 years old, in excellent condition, light home use only.

Okay so a level can come back and say that the quality isn’t high enough? I have used 16 bit dither and 16 bit on my pro tools bounce. I’m kind of Stuffed cuz I didn’t save my masters in a session. Only in the bounce, as I did several Master versions of each track and didn’t want to have to recreate...

Hey I have mastered some music in PT through a. Tc finalizer. I did all of my masters as a bounce to disk in 16bit quality. Is my resolution high enough or does it absolutely HAVE to be in 24 bit?

Re: CD recorder giving me a headache. Is there another way to burn my master?

Okay I did end up putting it through PT again but I bounced in 16bit instead of 24bit. Is this an issue or can I convert to 24 bit? I put it onto cd to archive.

Re: Mastering balance on tc finalizer express

Okay thanks. No it’s just because my finalizer was originally going to a cd recorder and my cd recorder is being wired
So had to put it back into pro tools to burn my master mixes

I thought it was maybe I was overlooking the tracks on the tc finalizer

Re: Mastering balance on tc finalizer express

So basically the issue is that when I play my master mix out of my normal speakers it sounds fine. But when I play it through crap speakers some of the sound doesn’t cut through. I.e. bass and drums

I’m getting quite a bit of gain reduction but I have everything set to 0db on the inputs and pretty much 0db on the outputs if the finalizer.
