I called Jamie at Plangent about a microcassette with speed fluctuations I had with a microcassette. I had re-shelled it to a cassette and transferred it at 24/96. He said he could handle it. I sent his link to the customer, but I don't know if he ever followed up. John, I suggest you call Jamie and talk to him. He may be able to help you. But that help comes at a hefty price..(p) 845 652 0277 (e) [log in to unmask]

If there's 60Hz hum on the tape, might Capstan be able to lock onto that?
