Quick question...I recently stumbled upon a company that is offering master tapes (Analogy Records) in many formats. One such is a 7" reel of 1/4" tape at 7.5ips in 1/4 track config for most consumer machines such as my Teac A-4300SX. However, they do not utilize both sides of the tape, they record only on ONE side!
What I was wondering...is there a sonic advantage to recording only on one side of a tape when using a 1/4 track configuration? I would think not having material on the reverse tracks has some benefit...but just wondering if anyone has a technical answer to that?
