There is still a headstrong band of analog purists and professionals who insist that analog tape recorders are superior over digital equipment, if not unbeatable. Guess..., they may be right. Whatever the truth, professional open reel tape recorders are masterpieces of audio engineering.

Thanks for tuning in. If you are searching the worldwide web for information about analog tape recording, you may find some of it here. Did you ever think of organising your audio archive close to perfection? You can do this and enhance your recording sessions to a new level by using Reel to Reel 2006 ©. It is a handy database application to build archives for Record collections and Audio Tape recordings. The database originates from my passion to record Jazz and Blues classics on analog audio tape, and my aim for appropriate documentation of carefully arranged tape recordings. Reel to Reel 2006 © is FREEWARE developed by using Microsoft ® Access software. Reel to Reel 2006 © effectively helps those who believe in analog audio to organise and stay in tune with their valuable tapes. The database provides also archives for vinyl Records and Compact Discs, and it has powerful tools for searching through the archives as well as features for stylish presentation of your arrangements on tape.

Well, possibly I am 40 years or more too late with this audio tape archive thing. But still, it's fun to join "the old" with "the new". You never know …, in 40 years from now there may be no more computers with impractical database systems in our homes, but still some of these wonderful tape machines, well maintained and looked after by us.
