Ready your ears for something special! From Acoustic Sounds, Inc., the world leader in audiophile music sales, comes the highest quality analog reel-to-reel tape album reissues — Analogue Productions Ultra Tape
! Twelve masterpiece titles are featured in this new reissue series, each a 15 ips, ¼-inch 2-track (½ track) analog tape copy (IEC equalization
) sourced from a copy of the original analog master tape. Transferred real-time, using an ATR-modified Ampex Tape Machine with flux magnetic heads. Each copy is housed in a custom slipcase cover.
The first two titles — Janis Ian's Breaking Silence
and Ben Webster's Gentle Ben
— are slated to be released before 2016 ends. Analogue Productions is the vinyl, SACD and now audio tape reissue label owned by Acoustic Sounds.
The entire series is available by subscription. Subscribers will get the first copies produced. This can be important because making these tapes is a very time consuming process, and we usually can only release them in batches. So, subscribers would get those first copies whereas other consumers may have to wait.
Acoustic Sounds has enlisted Gus Skinas, of the Super Audio Center in Boulder, Colo., to handle the tape transfers, which are made using the Ampex Tape Machines in the control room at Blue Heaven Studios, here in Salina.
For more than a year, at every trade show and on more and more phone calls and emails, our customers have hammered away with the same request: “When are you going to start selling tape?!”
You spoke, we listened. We know tape's advantages: greater dynamic range, especially at frequency extremes; minimal signal processing; and unsurpassed richness and realism — it's the closest to hearing the master tape. You're going to be blown away when you experience playback of our Ultra Tape reissues from Analogue Productions
