Ratings and Reviews
I love this app. It saves me tons of time and money. I can now quickly and accurately align my analog tape machine in half the time it use to take me. It also has been a great teaching tool as the more I use the app the more I understand how my tape machines works and how to best align
It. In addition, the importance of keeping my tape machine properly aligned, to improve the fidelity of my recordings, cannot be overstated. The app does just that. A must for anyone who has a tape machine who wants a return on their investment.
Great Record / Repro Level Calibration Procedure Reference
The Mara Tape Cal app is an easy quick reference for calibrating MCI and other pro analog tape machines. I use it to calibrate the correct input and output record levels for recording at 30ips on ATR Mastering Tape. This app provides clear step by step instruction on the analog tape record and playback level calibration procedure for pro tape machines.
This is a Huge Help
I am still somewhat new to the world of tape machines and this app make the process so much easier. It walks you through each step and includes pictures and videos of actions need to get your machine calibrated.
