Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: Not Necessarily

The iPod is what was usually used on long drives. Last week a Sony Walkman was used instead. My initial comparison was one of iPod (memory) and tape being used at the time.

Source for the cassette used was vinyl played on a Dual 704, Shure V15III cartridge, so that tape was analogue from source to recorder.

Files saved to the iPod are sourced from vinyl. saved to my computer as .wave files on GoldWave audio editing program, the loaded to the iPod.

The .we you were looking for is a typo.

The entire experience was one of comparing digital to analogue after finding that an .wave file digitized didn't sound as good as tape played on an old Walkman. I used a CD to see if there was a difference between a commercially created source, expecting to find there wasn't much difference.

I felt there was a noticeable difference in favor of the tape.

I apologize for my lack of clarity.
