After looking @ the owner's manual online, I can see why you're confused. Man! It shouldn't that tough. You can always tell when the Chinese translate anything into English. If look you closely enough on pages 18 & 19, whenever the directions refer to "manual recording" one of functions that they don't specify is the recording of 1 tape onto another. The way that this manual was written the writer apparently didn't envision that anyone would want to do tape-to-tape (dubbing) recording.

On pg 18 it says to load a recordable (blank) tape into the B side deck. Easy enough. Next comes the tough to discern part.
In section 2 where it mentions "For Manual Recording and Sound Mixing:" Select the desired source to record or mix. In your case that would be the A deck. Here is where they needed to take a little time and explain that tape-to-tape recording is one of those possibilities. Notice that you'll need to place the B deck in standby. Then select the REC PAUSE/START to start the B deck & then (this is another place where they needed to be more clear) you'll need to simultaneously start (press the play button) the A deck which would be the recording source. In the future just remember that the A deck is the source and the B deck is the destination.

Good luck.

That is a fantastic post. You explained it beautifully right up to the point where you explain how to do it. You're right, they did not explain specifically how to do tape to tape dubbing. But I did not understand what you meant by putting the B deck on standby. It turns out that when the REC PAUSE/START button is press once it is in pause mode (standby). So it must be pressed twice before recording can be started. No need to press anything simultaneously. Once the record button has been put into start mode, play may be pressed at any time to start recording.

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.

Sony TC-WR670 how to copy my old cassettes to new tape on bay B?


I can't fing my manuals either. I have the same one. I think you put the originalin one side and the blank in the other. Rewind both to starting point. Press play and pause on original. Press the red record button on the copy tape. Then press pause and press the high speed dub button. If nothing happens hit the pause button on each side. Just trying to remember. May not be right.

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.

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.

Unable to to dub from the radio, phono,or cd


As far as I know, you need to press Record button to record from external source. If you press Dub, it will start Dubbing from Tape-A to Tape-B. You might be need to press Record and later press Pause or Play to start recording.
