Does anyone have a well-working Portastudio rig? I have a small group of 4-track cassette tapes made
on both Tascam and Yamaha iterations of this format in the early 1980s that I'd like transferred to
WAV tracks that I can then port into Harrison Mixbus software. The tapes are both 3.75IPS and 1 7/8
IPS. Most are dbxII NR, although I think some are no NR (they are all marked). This is a private
project for a friend, so I can't pay much if anything for the transfer. I have an original
Portastudio in sorta-working condition, and have not gotten satisfactory results playing the tapes.
I'm hoping someone has one that's got better mechanics and hopefully slightly less bad sounding
Please ping off-list if you can help.
