Going back and forth from recording to dubbing tapes

We 99% of the time record tapes, but on occasion we have to make copies of the tapes we record. When going from recording tapes to dubbing tapes and then going back to recording tapes, all of a sudden the tapes aren't recording. any insight on what we're doing incorrectly when we try to go back into recording tapes

If there is a switch (either a mechanical switch or a relay) that changes the recording mode (something like normal/dub or record/dub), it might have oxydized contacts and this may be the cause of the problem. Cleaning the contacts inside the switch/relay or replacing the switch/relay will probably solve this.

You may want to check the switch prior to removing it. You can do it with a continuity tester (possibly with the kind that gives a sound signal when the continuity is good).

Otherwise, if the switch can be disassembled in a simple way, see if the contacts inside the switch are brownish/oxydized, if so, you need to clean them, but you also need to clean the clips that connect the contacts. Some fine sandpaper will do the trick, but be careful when you disassemble and reassemble the switch, some parts can easily get damaged.

Why won't deck A play when deck B is in record mode?


If you are recording from another source, then deck A is cut off. As you can't listen and record at the same time.
If you are recording from A to B then there will be a dub button, pressing that you should be able to hear deck A, as B records it.

How do you dub cassette to cassette


Hi
If you have a dual cassette deck, then one deck will only play cassettes,whilst the other will have a record facility as well.
Basically you need to place the original cassette in the play only deck and the target cassette in the record/play deck.
Start the playback in the play only deck and immediately press the record and play buttons together on the record deck. Some decks have high speed dubbing but this varies so much that you will need to consult your manual for this.
Cheers

How do I dub using the onyx double cassette deck?


There should be a button or switch that will select the recording deck and the dubbing deck. You put a blank tape into the recording deck and the pre-recorded one into the play deck. Pressing the record button on the dubbing deck, on some models should start the play deck running. If not press play on that deck.

Kenwood KX-79 CW dual cassette hook up?


Just connect the deck via tape 1 the out of the deck going to the in of the amp. While the out of the amp goes to the in of the deck.


The tape deck itself will automatically choose the player that plays the cassette. One will play the other will be on pause (if you press both play buttons) till the tape stops then the other will play. For recording from tape to tape one deck will be the copy and the other the copier. There should be a dubbing button which you press to record tape to tape. Some models have a high speed dub also. For recording from the amp unless both decks have record buttons you will only be able to record with one deck. Make certain the dub button is not set.

Ho do i use the high speed dubbing feature to quickly transfer tapes to my pc using the alesis Dual-Cassette Tape Digital Archiver?


What's your hurry? You copy a tape once but listen to it forever in real-time without fear of it wearing out or degrading. Shouldn't it be as faithful a copy as you can get?

A little advice.... if you have any desire to transfer the higher frequencies from your cassettes to your digitized copies, do it at normal speed. The hi-end response of the deck is ok at normal speed but doubling it will double the playback frequencies, making incapable of reproduction with any fidelity.


Frequency Response

(-20dB recording)

Chrome tape 40-15000Hz (±3dB)

Normal tape 40-14000Hz (±3dB)

(0dB recording)

Chrome tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)

Normal tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)

Imagine what its response at, say, 30000Hz might be. That's what doubling the playback speed would demand from the head and electronics. It ain't hi-fi anymore.

Just bought a used Sony TCWR610, to reproduce some valued cassettes. Cannot get the B deck to record. There is a little red light that comes on that says REC, but deck does not turn as I start the tape...


I have the same tape deck. To do a copy on this machine you first press the normal speed button below synchro dubbing, then hit the pause button on the recording side to start the copy. It will automatically start both decks.

And to stop the recording hit either of the stop buttons.

What are the steps to dubbing off the other tape?


You need a set of RCA AV dubbing cables (available at fine electronics stores everywhere), and a couple VCRs. Plug the cables into the "A/V Out" jacks on the back of the VCR that will be playing, and into the "A/V In" jacks on the VCR that will record.

Also on the recording VCR, use a regular coaxial cable to attach it to a television.

Now, set the TV to 3, fire up the VCR's, and set the recording VCR's TV/VCR toggle to VCR. Also on the one that is recording, set the channel to "INPUT" or "AUX" or something like that. (You're telling it to record what it sees coming from the jacks you plugged the cables into.) Then hit Play on the other machine. You should be able to see your tape playing back. If you do, you have followed these directions correctly, and you're ready to make your dub.

HINT: The first few feet of tape are often prone to dropout and generally sucking. Record a minute of black before making your dub. Mark this on the tape or tell them when you turn it in. They will be impressed.

How do I dub casette to casette? I lost the manual.


There should be a DUB button. After you push the DUB button, you will have another button that will allow you to select Dub form 1-2 or 2-1. If not there will only be one deck that will play while the other records and plays. Put the tape to be coppied in the play deck and the blank tape in the record deck push record and it should work.
