Re: Tape looping/sequencing

Not as bad as you might think considering the tape was probably running at
least 15 ips- 2 inches would be a fraction of a second- and there is no
chance the tape will "crash". I am digital myself but still love the whole
analog system- I am often driven to madness by software problems- a fresh
all-audio box will be in the works for me...

..the moral is- clean your herb RIGHT the first time!
