  • * Transfer into 16bit/44.1kHz wav files.
    * The biggest challenge was getting the bata tapes to playback without dropouts.
    * The best process was doing a full fast forward/rewind to repack the tape.
    * Then play about 10 minutes of the PCM tape and tweak the tracking for the strongest playback envelope.
    * Next Mike ran the transfer of the entire set and write down the time position of any dropouts.
    * If any dropouts occured he replayed the same section to new wav files for a complete no drop out transfer
    * Usually the second or third pass works.
    * Using a Wavelab montage Mike edited the patch to line up to the exact sample and use no cross fade.
