    For all of the analog guys and gals out there, Quantegy is back in business with new capital and a much better financial outlook. The story just came out in the April 27 issue of Radio world!

    YEEEHAAAAAA!!!!!

    Now back to your previously scheduled 24 track 2" recording.

    :D

    YEEEEEEEEE HA HOO!

    I still love recording to my Fostex G24S 1". Was really worried
    about the lack of tape!

    According to Pro Audio Review, Emtec is going to be reborn with all of the BASF machines, and I think ATR is getting into it as well.

    Unfortunately, there have been no new 2 inch tape machines made in 5 years...

    Maybe all the panic in the streets of audioville hipped the manufacturers up to the fact that this stuff still sounds better than digital.

    I've definitely been on pins and needles since Dec when after
    taking delivery of my Otari 1" 8 track machine I read about the
    layoff/shutdown over at www.TAPE-OP.com.

    I was throuroughly disgusted dejected and panicky .

    What was I going to do now with my 200 lb doorstop ?

    So, I bought a few used 1" reels from Les and said my nightly prayers
    that somebody would pick up the ball and keep rolling .

    I really didn't _want_ to go digital to do my tracking at home--something
    about the romance of analog tape.

    I'd rather watch the reels spinning when tracking and mixing
    then pointing a mouse and going thru menus, dealing with plug-ins, etc. to get the tried and true sound of tape .

    Anyway I'm happy ... and my Otari is veerrrry happy .
