What kind of info? If memory serves, they were 1/2'' 16-tracks, which is really not enough track width - lots of crosstalk, print-through, all kinds of problems. On the other hand, 1/2'' tape is cheaper and easier to aquire, considering there is no more 2'' or 1'' tape being manufactured. I still wouldn't recommend it - current digital, problematic as it is, is head and shoulders above what the F-16 will give you.
i have tapes from an unfinished project that i want to complete. it was recorded on a fostex 16 track machine. i was looking for tech info on the E16 and the B16 as i think it was one of those two machines. and then i want to try and locate one.
thanks Gary. i saw that one on ebay. i've seen a couple of E16's on there as well. i'll keep looking. no one in my area has one. can that head alignment be adjusted if my tapes don't playback properly?
