Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

I can think of no logical reason for that.

I'm not saying it isn't happening, but it shouldn't be possible. The erase head on your deck (if it's working properly) wipes out whatever is in it's path when you record, including any residual noise leftover after you bulk erase. The noise on a bulk-erased tape should be much lower than the previous signal recorded on the tape.

I'm wondering if your deck might have a head alignment issue. That could be the culprit.

I have a Radio Shack eraser that works great. I always bulk my tapes before re-recording.

Cheers & good luck!
