arsclist resource, BLC Studio

The following is a description of the BLC Recording Studio being sent in response to an email sent by Richard Hess. I hope this may be of value. In particular, the studio has done much archiving, mastering, recording and preservation of languages from around the world, many of which are rarely spoken today. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions. Thanks.

Once again, sorry for the cross posting.

I'm trying to create a Web site that is of use to people while also letting people know my media restoration capabilities.

As always, I like discussing your projects with you. They always present interesting challenges whether or not I actually do any of it.

I have made a substantial update to my resources page trying to create a referral service of who to check for specialty transfers. There are obviously omissions in it. I hope there are no errors.

If you provide a resource and wish to be added, please let me know.

If there's a format you would like to know about transferring and don't see a link to it, please ask. I may know some people who can do this.

The resources page offers substantial detail in the area of reel-to-reel tapes as there are literally hundreds of possible combination of tape width, track configuration, noise processing, speed and equalization. I haven't even tabulated speed--most people can do the most common speeds. Many machines have wide-range varispeed as well.

I hope you find it useful!
