Re: Looking for someone to convert audio tapes!!!!!

I am not great at sound quality engineering but if you are just looking for somebody with a tapedeck and time to burn on uncirculated stuff that's been hoarded, shoot me a PM.

With all due respect, I see you want Audioarchivist to send you a bunch of VHS tapes, indicated in this thread.

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...=127761&page=2

That would also certainly take time, which you indicate not having. What's the difference?

Just curious...

A three-hour video tape takes three hours to transfer.

I can do three C60 audio cassettes in that time

Honestly, can't you just share a list of artists on these audio tapes, to let folks see if there's anything they're willing or able to deal with? You said in PM you could send pics of them, and I sent you my e-mail addy by PM two weeks ago. What's the difficulty here? Don't you want to communicate with those who offer to help?

Assuming you're talking to me, I'd riposte with "Why are you so, so slow to respond?"

It's now 18 days since you asked for help, and I/we still have NO idea what material you have to be transferred.

However, I note you've amended the OP, so the matter is closed.

Re: Looking for someone to convert audio tapes!!!!!

Kind of scary that someone can miss the point so completely when they're asked a simple and totally logical question, hey?

I'm glad that I'm not in a big hurry to get rid of all those VHS tapes. I'm trying to figure out where they should go and who ought to get what of them. I guess this thread helped me figure out a little bit of that!

If you're asking for help, you should be specific. If you want someone to work on music, you should make sure that they're actually a fan, so they'll do a good job because they care about it. Are you hoping to just get a fan of technology who just enjoys doing tape transfers for free?

A properly authored DVD takes time. Even doing a "good" standalone transfer takes some time. I've done standalone transfers and going in and making proper track markers for each song and finalizing the editing takes some extra time. Then again, mastering a cassette properly takes me at least half a work week to do right. What's the big rush on doing transfers? Slow down and do them properly...

Why wouldn't you just disclose what you were looking to have done? It doesn't encourage me to trust you...

Apparently, he's a bit of a jerk, too... He posted a nice message in my VHS giveaway thread...

maybe all the shit he's leeching is eating up so much of his bandwidth that he can only make it back to this thread once or twice a week. This can't be the only site he's doing it on. With this in mind I'm deducing that he got cut off from DIME or a similarly ratio-restrictive site for being an uber-leecher, and now he needs to up original content in order to be reinstated as a downloader, but is possibly too lazy to learn how to do this himself or not willing to spend the money to buy a tape deck or quality cable to transfer from there to his sound card.

having all that been said, however, depending on which bands he's got, I'm still game for transferring some stuff

Good luck with that, I've been trying, here and in PM, to tease that ('which bands') out of him for a fortnight, with no results.

Looks like we really screwed the pooch on this one ... I guess now the lucky folks at planet rock will have a chance to enjoy these uncirculated nickelback masters while the rest of us will have to spend many a sleepless night wondering what coulda been...
