Digitised: yes Media: BASF LGS 35 RtoR 270m Audio Notes: Files A, B & C. -- Files A & B are 96kHz 24bit. -- File C is 48kHz 24bit. -- A) 3 3/4ips. Levels vary greatly & unexpectedly eg. 19.45 then 20.00 - tried to adjust gain during ingest until 14.30 - some minor Studer analogue peaking / noise floor hiss difficult to avoid, eg. at 30.00 mic pad appears to be switched off mid-sentence. Would benefit from volume graphing or compression (& dehiss). Poor treble response, some flutter eg. 25.35, 26.15. Tape was stored tail-out - good. -- B) 3 3/4ips. Levels vary. -- C) 15/16ips. Dropped to 48kHz & pitch-shifted -1octave - very poor sound quality. Quantisation noise / squeal at about 10kHz. Recorder motor hum. Levels vary. Some test material.
