This "Recording Tip" comes from Sye Mitchell, president of the Sye Mitchell Sound Company:
With everything today going to digital and Pro Tools, my clients tell me how much they miss the sound of analog. I tell them not to despair. They can get that great sound of analog and still use Pro Tools. How? All they need is a 24-track recorder and a Dolby XPSR rack -- that's right, Dolby SR. Did you know that if you record with SR, you can record at 15 ips, getting twice the recording time per reel and at 0 level, you get 96dB dynamic range. Fifteen ips tapes produce recordings with frequency response flat from 20 to 20k Hz with no cross talk or print through. As an added plus, you can then dump these recordings to Pro Tools and get the best sound of both worlds: digital and analog.
