Re: [ARSCLIST] Cassette project

I would also recommend making an analog copy. As I'm sure everyone here knows, 1st & 2nd generation 1600/1610/1630 tapes are falling apart, and drives, while convenient, are tiny little gadgets spinning 7k rpm in some cases. If digital only, make as many copies as possible, on flash drives, outboard hard drives, etc. And a solid state drive copy would also be nice.

Redundancy, redundancy, redundancy.

Just to add to Richard's excellent suggestion, you can also use the Zoom connected by its USB cable to go directly into the computer - or to download from its internal SD card. That way you don't need a card reader if you don't have one already. And, I found a 4G SDHC card that came with a reader too, in a drug store of all places... in the camera department.

However, the generic sound card on a generic computer may or may not be adequate to the task. A much simpler solution is to obtain a device like a Zoom H2 and let it create the files, and then use a card reader to take the files off the SDHC card and put them into your storage system. It even comes with the dual RCA-> mini cable. A cassette deck with an output level control is highly recommended as do not use the Zooms line input level control to go below 100, all you do is move down the clipping point (what can you expect for $250C, $160US).
