    Save on NEW short MRL Test Tapes

      Here is the full description of our short MRL Tapes for analog recorder alignment:

      They are 2 minutes 47 seconds long. We are an authorized MRL dealer and sell all tapes in the MRL line, but the full length tapes are so expensive, we worked with them to develop a comprehensive set of tones on a short tape. As an example, in full length, a two inch test tape costs over $1000 but our short version is $339. The big different is that these tapes have a 20 to 20kHz sweep, where the full length tape has an announcement followed by a tone, repeating for each frequency throughout the spectrum. This takes lots of time, but it is easy to check frequency response by running our sweep. It's actually faster to do, since most machines only have one EQ adjustment centering at 10kHz on each channel, so you can adjust it, then run the sweep. If it isn't quite right, it's quick to make a slight change and run the sweep again, and when it's flat, check the 10k tone again. If it is -1/4 dB (for example) instead of right at 0 vu for flattest high end, then subsequent channels can be set at -1/4 first, then checked against the sweep. They are recorded +6 above 185nWb/m, which is 355nWb but we can supply any level if you prefer (special order takes a few days longer and costs a bit more). With a 355 nWb tape, the machine can be set up for +6, +9 or +3 operation. Tones are 50 Hz (10 sec), 100 (15 sec), 1kHz (25 sec), 10k (35 sec), 16k (20 sec), white noise for phase adjust (25 sec) and a 20-20k sweep to check response. We added the 16 kHz, since some people prefer it over white noise for the fine azimuth and phase adjustment. They are recorded full track so they work for any track configuration. Prices are for any speed: two inch $339, one inch $279, half inch $199, and quarter inch $119. Discounts apply for multiple purchases, such as two speeds, if ordered at the same time.

      HAN-D-MAG studio demagnetizers, best in the world $89 (NEW) 115 and 220 volts available, as are kits with magnetometers.
