I have recently acquired a TEAC A-2050 tape player.
From what I know, its a pretty standard, consumer level, 1/4" tape recorder.
I have a stash of Ampex 406 Audio Mastering Tapes which I attempted to use in this player.
When record enabled, the audio path and VU meters lead me to believe I am recording. However, when I playback what I tried to record, I hear it VERY faintly.
First of all, am I using the right kind of tape?
Can anybody shed some light on tape types and formats?
