[ARSCLIST] 30 vs 15 IPS EQ - was One Inch, two track master tapes- 15 or 30 IPS

I doubt our friend makes recordings, he just want to play back on it. Sad, as there are people who could make records with it!

By the way, I have been trying to find a chart or diagram of the record/play curves for 30 vs 15IPS - can anyone here point me to one online?

I have a client who wants to do half speed transfers at home…

An ATR-100 series 15/30 ips 1" 2-track is the Rolls Royce of all mastering decks. The heads may need lapping and I would make sure the thing is biased correctly if you plan on recording with it but that baby is insane. I would say the Studer may have it beat on machining of parts but from a sonic standpoint that is just about the finest solid-state beast ever made. Others may disagree but no one will question its place in the pantheon of audio history.

I mated the ATR transport with the legendary MR-70 electronics for a one-of-a-kind Frankenstein that was imho even better, but for a stock machine, unbeatable.

I have had a lot of strange machine made in the past but never a 1" 2trk You might want to look up John French and see what he has to say.
