From the sound of the initial description it sounded as if two
programs (one forward and one reverse) were being picked up
simultaneously (by the same head track) on playback, one program
ended and the reverse program continued. I was suggesting that I
might have some luck separating the two programs that played together
because I had a custom-built head assembly made for just this purpose
(and a few others).
When I transfer two track mono tapes or four-track mono/stereo tapes
and they don't have any noise reduction, I transfer all tracks at
once and reverse the necessary ones in the computer. In fact, some
people suggested copying analog to analog backwards as being a hair
better, but given the choice, I prefer to monitor the ingest process.
