Hi @Mark_Neilson, I just noticed your answer via e-mail, we currently don’t support that.
Thanks for posing me the tape and chip.
Have you guys ever adjusted the matching of the pb/rec amp to a head?
The manual specifies that it’s factory jigged to match head to board. I notice there are waveforms that you can observe through an oscilloscope. I have done CD player eye pattern alignments in the past.
Is it a reasonably straight forward procedure?
Also if I find that the head is in fact failed do you guys have spares?
It should be fine however - I suspect I got the chip too hot with my heat gun and that’s what killed it.
Matching heads to boards is about write current and has nothing to do with waveforms. @drdcc is currently making a video about that.
I don’t know which recorder and chip(s) you are talking about, could you explain in more detail?
