This is an outtake from the film I’m making right now for film scoring class. As you can see from the picture, it’s a Teac A-2340RS 4-track quadraphonic machine that uses 7″ reels of 1/4″ tape, running at either 7.5ips or 3.75ips. This is the machine I recorded my first album on, and these days I don’t get a whole lot of use out of it, but I did get to drag it out of storage and record some dialog with the old beast. I’m currently recording on Ampex 642, one of my favorite tape stocks.
I actually really like this shot, I just don’t think I have a use for it in my film.
