Can you record on ADAT/Hi-8/DAT/analog
Or do conversions from any of those formats?
What about video?
There were two competing digital tape products on the market back in the 90's. The first one, and probably the more popular of the two, was the Alesis ADAT machine. It used standard VHS tape to record multi-track audio. The second format was the Tascam DA-88/38 machines which used the smaller Hi-8 version video tape.
There was also a simpler stereo tape
format called DAT. It was loosely based on the same prinicple as video tape but
was designed only for two-track stereo audio recording. Usually used for final
mix-down/mastering or playback in stereo DAT decks.
I don't have this equipment here but I have a couple local sources that (supposedly) have working machines that might be able to help.
Reel-Reel analog tape
There are a number of studios still using analog reel-to-reel machines (but not me). As above I might know some local guys that still have working tape decks. The problem here are the multitude of formats and the machines needed to play them. Reel tape came in many shapes and sizes. From quarter inch up to two inch wide with who knows what sort of noise reduction technology being used (Dolby was probably the more popular method but dbx also had a completing technology).
