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.

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.

This takes a couple hours to upload a 45 minute tape to ITunes, is this normal? If so it will take the rest of my life to record my cassette collection. Is there a way to bypass ITunes & just use...


Welcome to analog sound. It hardly matters what you have upstream, the slowest link in the chain will determine the fastest speed. A cassette deck's high-end frequency response is dismal at normal speed. It only loses MORE high frequencies if you increase it, say, to dub cassettes. Playing out to the usb is at normal speed. Block out some time. That's the way it is.

Recording Speed


the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.

Do I have to watch the whole VHS???


Hi

It hasn't got a function called high speed dubbing or recording like a tape player unfortunatly cause the VCR needs to be able to read the VHS and if it had high speed then it would be like fast forwarding the whole time and would look really bad.

If you have any questions please dont hesutate to ask
