    Hello! Do you think it's possible to measure the FR of a connected 3-heads analog tape deck with REW? The returning audio would have a slight delay, is REW able to cope with this delay and present valid results? Thanks!

    I purchased a Pioneer Vintage CT-F6060 Cassette Tape deck at a garage sale today. Not sure if it works, but it powers up and the meters are bright. Only paid $10.00, but thought it looked interesting. Anyone know anything about this deck, or tell me where I might find some information on it...
  8. Dealing with a stretched tape

    Pro Audio
    Hi all, I was recently given an old cassette tape to digitize containing a "sentimental value" recording.
