the history goes like this. BASF sold the tape devision to Emtec who
later sold it to RMGI. I don't know if it's the same plant or a
different one that was copied exactly or just a totally new plant that
makes tapes according to the old formulas. There is a big difference in
the approaches. If it's the same plant and just a re brand you're in
good hands. If it's a different plant that copies the work flow exactly
you should be fine, but it it's a totally new plant that only uses the
old formulas then it's a good question to ask how are these tapes
compared to the old BASF ones. I have never used RMGI so I can't tell
you, but the old BASF and EMtec tapes were great. ATR tapes are made by
one extremely talented and devoted man named Mike Spitz. He is the only
person still maintaining the Ampex ATR-100 machine (I have 3 of them and
he is a great guy). The tapes are yet to be proven on longevity simply
because they are that old.
