Dubbing off old multi-tracks
I'm sure many here have done this, just wondered if there were any particular tips, procedures, or plugins to make it easier. In my case, I have a lot of old 4-tracks (and the original machine) with three tracks of audio and one SMTP track. I'm assuming the SMTP track should just be recorded hot and dry in Ardour.
Aside from cleaning the tape machine, and buzzing them over, are there any techniques, or JAMIN processes that can help?
