Real Time or High Speed?

What is the difference between Real Time and High Speed Duplication?: (realtime vs highspeed)

  • Real-time:

    Real-time duplication is suitable for high-fidelity music reproduction with the lowest tape noise and best fidelity from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Tapes are loaded to the exact length needed and then recorded in real-time, both sides at the same time. Duplication is done directly from your audio files. Every tape is checked on the A-side to ensure the quality is good. We can copy from 24-bit masters giving a resolution better than CD. We can also copy directly from a cassette master.

  • Pro High Speed: 

    Your master is reviewed and loaded into a digital bin. Duplication is done at high speed directly onto large tape pancakes. The pancakes are then loaded into the cassettes and cut to the exact length thanks to a low frequency cue tone recorded between copies. This method gives a good consistent result with flat frequency response from 20 Hz to 16 kHz. About 1 tape out of 50 is checked to ensure the quality is correct.
