Re: [ARSCLIST] Anyone used the Ion/Alesis USB Tape2PC Cassette decks?

Hi Richard:

I think this unit is too low-end. The bare minimum I'd go with would be a Tascam 2-head deck plugged right into the stock soundcard with the "consumer" $70 version of Soundforge for software. I think that gets you in the tent for under $500 if you already have a computer.

So, would you recommend it to a very-low-budget small archive to do preservation transfers of their drug-store-cassette-recorder-made tapes of irreplaceable oral traditions (i.e. the participants have died)?

Did you get any feedback from people you suggested it to?
