Re: dat transfers

One last thing I forgot to mention concerns sample rates. Record in the program you are using the same sample rate as what the dat tape was recorded at; i.e. dat tape @48000kHz, record to wav/aiff at 48000 kHz. There is an important reason for this; depending on the software/soundcard setup if you record at one sample rate while the playback is at a different sample rate and there is no resample process in the middle, the wav file speed and pitch on the audio will be off. You can correct it afterwards but it is easier to not have to and just do a proper resample to the end sample rate you want to use.
