    Welcome!

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you'll need to use RMGI LPR35. Most tape recorders of that era (mid-late 1970s to early 1980s) are spec'd for 1.0mil tape. Other varieties of commercially-available tape today are thicker, and will be too thick for your deck to handle.

    I personally recommend US Recording Media as my tape vendor of choice. Check them out here

    I think you are correct. I'm not sure if the reel motors in the 707 are as beefy as the one in a 909. I guess in the near future I'll find out for myself.
    The interface said to use "Windows XP or higher"...

    ... I used tape...

    You can use either 1.5 or 1.0 thick tapes.

    To use "old" tapes, go for Maxell UD or XLI, TDK Audua or Basf LP35.

    Slap some Maxell 35-90 or UDXL 35-90 on it. Shoule be good to go to get started.
