DAT Drives for Audio Extraction and Backups
We have several options for extracting audio from Digital Audio Tape drives.
These are the much heralded audio capable DAT drive that audiophiles
love! You can use these to dump the data from your Sony DATman(and
others) recordings faster than real-time(2x on DDS2 and DDS3 drives). This drive will
work on a PC(using DAT2WAV, VDAT, DODAT, and others
others), on an SGI(using bundled multimedia software). These drives make the Digital Audio Extraction process MUCH simpler. Check out this EDN article(link broken).
