Ampex 200 orsós (szalagos) magnó – “1” – es gyári számmal


A negyvenes években forradalmasította a hangrögzítést. A fotók és az idézet a híres mastering engineer, Steve Hoffman fórumáról valók.

“The Ampex 200 was a wonderful sounding machine. Decca (thanks to Bing Crosby) had one of the first ones as did Capitol Records, Melrose. By May of 1949 most major recording studios had one. By June, 1950, NBC, CBS, Mutual, Dumont, etc. had at least one. ABC Radio of course had the first one for Bing back in 1948 and bought 6 others with Bing advancing the money.. Les Paul used his Ampex 200 (modified) to make his amazing records with Mary Ford.. Originals were “B” wind with tape going up and around, inside out.

What does the machine sound like? “(We’re Gonna) ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK” was recorded on an Ampex 200-A as were Nat King Cole’s “MONA LISA”, “UNFORGETTABLE”, Mario Lanza’s “BE MY LOVE”, Frank Sinatra’s “YOUNG AT HEART”, Tennessee Ernie Ford’s “SIXTEEN TONS”, etc. Awesome sound at 30 IPS.”
