Question about Tape Decks

Recording from audio tape to laptop

Hello,
I have a TEAC stereo cassette deck R-H100.
I have got an audio tape I would like to transfer to my DELL Inspiron 6400 laptop.
What is the procedure?
In particular, are there limitations in terms of R-H100 line out vs. laptop microphone line in voltage specifications?
I couldn't find these specifications for any of the 2 products.

Thanks for your help!

Best;
Vincent

Hi Vincent.

Just use the play out connections on the back ot the deck, and connect them straight to the line in socket on the lappy. Use a RCA stereo to 3.5mm stereo jack connection, levels will be fine. Try audacity as a decent freeware recording program. Woks well, and you can use half decent plugins to tweak the audio. :)

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.

Record button wont press down


Hi,

Record button can be pressed down only if you placed a cassette into the deck and if this cassette was not protected against recording. This protection is mechanical, and can be found at the top of the cassette. One for the A-side and another one for B-side.
Thanks,

I can't find the manual to my Technics RS-TR272 Stereo Cassette Deck. How do you tape something on one cassette to another?


Place the tape you want to record into the left deck, Then the blank tape into the right deck. Press play on the left deck and record on the right deck.

It may be opposite depending on which side your recording deck is on.

Which ever deck has record, place blank cassette into that one and the cassette you want to copy into the other deck.

Hope this helps and please rate thanks

Can I use this machine (telex copyette 123)to cancel old cassettes by copying a blank cassette onto three cassettes??


You should be able to do that with it, but note that this is a mono copying machine rather than stereo, so it may not entirely write over the existing recording if it is in stereo and the heads are in a slightly different position, but that would be the same for a stereo recorder too.
I think it will work, but really for decent recordings, I wouldn't recommend 'recycling' tapes in this way, they deteriorate fairly quickly.

My Sony dual tape deck does not record in stereo anymore.


Oxide deposits on heads can restrict audio transfer to tape. You may need to do a deep cleaning of record head. Depending on how much deposits are on heads may need no more than alchohol and Q-tip. Be sure to clean erase head and drive roller. Afterwards, try recording, then use headphones in jack on recorder to check for recording on both channels. If this works, problem is not in rest of equipment set up. If you still need help, email me

Teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...


very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.
