I just saw a video today of a Mr. Tape USSR DJ, that was doing it with two R2R tape machines. It was a fun performance!

Most of my stuff is backed up to TDK Type II.
There's a small problem rewinding...
I've got a few Type II's, but finding them unopened these days is a tall order. :lol:

You got a pencil handy?!?
No, but I have a pen ...

(I wonder how the apple and pineapple fit into all of this, but I remember the Reason add with the pineapple shaker :mrgreen:).

I still have a Nagra IV with crystal sync that works but currently serves as a decoration and a reminder of times passed... Have a few older low grade reel to reel recorders that work( also decoration)... my cassette 4 track I did 1000's of songs still works but the wow, flutter, and tape stretch issues of some of those recordings, take a bit of work to make them functional... The ones I chose to repair digitally were worth the effort though. Done my fair share of splicing tape on old Steinbeck film editing machines. I don't miss the process but it was all we had...
Limitations can cause one to be more creative in my experience. :thumbs_up:

Great, I have MANY boxes of old tapes I’ve not heard for about 40 years that I’ll get right out to you! ;)
