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

Hi Richard:I have always used old Sony cassette decks...which usually have mike-in
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.

Note that ceramic-cartridge outputs are essentially "line-level" signals (1
give/take) as are the "Line Out" outputs of cassette-decks...a fact I used
to record my old 78's...!
