Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: How about a listing of the tape decks we've owned?

Owned or lived with:
Revox A-77 Mk 3
Otari MX5050 B2-II
Braun TG-1000 (best transport ever? It used 3/4-mil green-backed BASF tape on 8.5" reels)
Akai M8

Used when I was a studio assistant:
Studer A80 Mk III 1/2" half-track
Studer B67 1/4" half-track
Studer A800 Mk IV 2" 24-track - a 900-lb jewel. I got pretty good at setting the 96 adjusting screws on the cards at the bottom. The smell of 2" tape is amazing.
