Do you deal with analog reel-to-reel tape? This hands-on workshop will get you rolling on best practices related to audiotape handling, identification and playback. A lecture on the history and principles of magnetic recording will cover the theoretical basis, and a hands on session with experienced engineers will show you how to identify and play back audio tape on the beautiful Studer decks at The MediaPreserve. New this year: advanced techniques in our "experts' room". Whether you want to understand your materials better or want to deepen your understanding of magnetic media, come to this workshop to learn, ask questions, and interact with experts in the field. All participants will receive a bibliography and resource list. Limited to 16 participants.

A free bus from the Westin Hotel to The MediaPreserve will depart at 12:30 sharp, and a return bus will leave at 4 PM from The MediaPreserve.
