You might want to check the prices of tape as well as the machines. The Tascam 38 uses 1/2" tape at 15IPS. A single reel of RTM900, 10.5" reel is €118 or about $150. That will give you 30 minutes of recording time. The days of grabbing a reel of tape for $25 are long gone.
You are right.
I really don´t need 8 tracks.
Is there any unit reel to reel you would sugest that could be good for a studio, I mean more pro, 15 ips for example, instead the Akais..,
The man here that have the Akais has a Revox A77 15 ips.
I could stay with 2 tracks, with a unit that would worth passing the audio through it better than a UAD tape plugin..., not sure if that exist, or if I should need to buy a real Studer A800?
