Alongside its pioneering work in developing professional recording media for new disc and card formats, HHB is ensuring that the many users of existing tape-based multi-track formats have continued access to the latest developments in dependable, high-performance recording media.
At a time when every other professional audio media manufacturer has abandoned the market, HHB's latest DA60DC and DA113DC double coated DTRS tapes provide users of the Tascam 8 channel recording system with the latest metal particle tape formulation to deliver high output and carrier to noise ratio, along with the low block error rates essential for use in high resolution digital audio recording applications.
A non-magnetic layer beneath the recording layer contains a lubricant for smooth running of the tape, while the tape substrate itself is designed to minimise friction during high speed shuttling. The binder is specially formulated to minimise the shedding of the metal particle recording layer, even after repeated use over many years.
Approved by Tascam for all DTRS recording applications and now the only double coated DTRS tapes available on the market, both the 60 and 113 minute tapes are packaged in professional library cases and are supplied with labelling formatted specifically for professional audio use.
Commenting on the launch, HHB Managing Director Ian Jones says, "The HHB Professional Recording Media Products range includes the latest disc and card formats, but we know that there are many users out there still getting great service from their Tascam DTRS multitracks, and indeed other tape-based formats such as DAT and ADAT which we also continue to support. As the only media manufacturer focussed primarily on the needs of the audio professional, HHB will continue to innovate new media products wherever there is a need.
