MCI JH24Published on 02/16/11 at 16:17
The MCI JH24 is a 24 channel analog tape machine. The studio I work at has one of these in our main room, although it only gets used maybe about once a month. I recently did another session with it after only having used it a handful of times. Let me start by saying that tape really does sound awesome! While not necessary for everything, I like to use it to at least record drums and bass when feasible. Of course tracking to tape will add length to your sessions, but that's for another day. I'm not an expert at all when it comes to tape machines, as the JH24 is really the only one that I've used to do my own sessions on. However, the machine is still very stable and works great...…

The MCI JH24 is a 24 channel analog tape machine. The studio I work at has one of these in our main room, although it only gets used maybe about once a month. I recently did another session with it after only having used it a handful of times. Let me start by saying that tape really does sound awesome! While not necessary for everything, I like to use it to at least record drums and bass when feasible. Of course tracking to tape will add length to your sessions, but that's for another day. I'm not an expert at all when it comes to tape machines, as the JH24 is really the only one that I've used to do my own sessions on. However, the machine is still very stable and works great after years of use. I don't know exactly what years the JH24 was made, nor what year the one we've got is from. The JH24 we've got does have a remote control, the AutoLocater III, which is necessary to have for us so I can run both the tape machine and Pro Tools (for monitoring in Pro Tools as well). The tapes we use with the MCI JH24 are Quantegy GP9 2" tapes, which we've got a few of on hand. I really love the way this tape machine sounds, but it's also the one I'm most familiar with and have done the most work on my own with. I've got experience with other machines as well, but not where I'm doing the bulk of operations. I really don't know what it would cost or how hard it would be to get a JH24, I'm just glad we've got one for use at the studio. Tracking to tape is a really fun process and you'll definitely notice a difference in timbre when compared to stuff not done on tape. The JH24 seems to me to be as good as any 24 track tape machine that's still around...

One of the most widespread in the world with Studer and Otari machines. I started working with Dice 1986. The one I just bought in 1988. This machine offers an incredible dynamic bandwidth ... and equally amazing .. approx. 30-30 kHz to -1 dB. Better than many current machines on hard disc. Moreover it is to leave the world of hard disc I bought this machine. Parts are still fairly easy to find especially in the USA. His weakness? Transportation, less stable than on a Studer, fairly common problems web tension ... and torque end of the tape. Some annoying to find components .. round eg ICs. Transport less silent on a Studer also ... Autolocator uneventful ... simple and effective ...
