Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] Application method for LAST Tape Preservative

I think you are right!That was meant to read "5 to 7 Ips". There was originally a hyphen between the numbers that I suspect was stripped by the Listserv because it is still there in the Word document I used to compose the message.But hey, 57 Ips ain't so bad. You just have to carefully calculate the EQ time constants.;-)Cheers!CoreyAt 01:17 AM 12/18/2009, you wrote:> I THINK YOU ERRORED IN YOUR SPEED SETTING HERE.>PAUL>>>>>>>Paul Turney>CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This email message (including any attachments)>is for the sole use of the intended recipient and may contain>confidential and privileged information>>Sirensound Digital UK>Somerford House>22 Somerford Road>Cirencester> ++44 (0) 1285 642289>Sirensound Digital UK>>-----Original Message----->From: Corey Bailey [mailto:[log in to unmask]]>Sent: Friday, December 18, 2009 07:42 AM>To: [log in to unmask]>Subject: [ARSCLIST] Application method for LAST Tape Preservative>>Quoting "Richard L.
