    this book?


    If so, is it good? There are very few reviews on it so I thought I'd see what you all thought.

    Yes, I bought it when it first came out. There is some reference to it on

    it first came out. There is some reference to it on this site somewhere. Overall, I think it is great. He does mention that you can use a 38 for stereo mastering, but some folks here say "not so". It has great interviews and comes with a CD. I say it's a great read for those sitting on the analog fence!

    Now, why wouldn't one be able to use a 38 (Tascam 38, I assume) for stereo mastering?

    I suppose you could use a 38, which would be the same track width as a 1/4 track stereo deck.

    I noticed it comes with a CD. What's on it. I was browsing and it looks like it might be things like "this is tape saturation" or whatever. Is that about right? I'm not on the fence, but I'm not very educated yet. So I wonder if it would be a good addition to my library. Thanks for the feedback.

    For 26.00 I'd hope it would be a good book.

    Looks like you can get a new copy for less than 6 bucks shipped so hey, what have you got to lose? (other than six bucks I guess )

    Not a bad book overall. It has a few mistakes in it. The main one I remember is the author thinking two separate tracks together were equal to one track of the same width as far as being able to push levels.

    Just ignore that part in the book and the rest isn't too bad. Very basic for many of us, but it's supposed to be.

    This isn't right, is it?

    A 1/4" stereo deck will give you 1/8" per track.

    But the 38, which is a 1/2" 8-track deck, will only give you 1/16" per track.

    Right?

    Right?
    That math seems right to me. Here's a dumb question though. Don't most heads have a slight gap between each track? If so wouldn't this diminish (if only slightly) the track width? But yes, 1/8 of 1/2 is 1/16.
