Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

Meters everywhere...

This deck is playback only, so no need for meters. Normally, in studios, the machines would be calibrated to standard levels, and all the level control then done from the console, so those would not need meters either.

I have plenty of different meters in my system - some of my machines have them, most don't, but I use scopes as meters, that is the best way to see what is happening there. I set the scopes in XY mode and put cursors to limit the excursion, then you can clearly see the levels.

I also have external meter boxes, of which the Dorrough is the best, it gives you both the average and peak readings at the same time.

The music comes from the sampler tape from the Italian company Analogy Records, I can get more info later.
