Dude, another chummer who does the tapedubbin' thing with a male-to-male 0.5mm, a studio tape deck with a stereo jack and his motherboard's Line-in to Audacity! Made my day, bro'. ^_^
A lot of the time I digi-dub cassette tapes to see what different correction (hiss/treble pass) methods work well with tapes of various age. A good friend and neighbour left me almost all of his tapes when he moved out of the house across the street from me several years ago, and very few were more recent than 1970s vintage (although in excellent shape in most cases); others I've drummed up from yard sales and thrift stores; the always-nice thing is that unless you really dig tapes for music playback, you can get huge batches of them for a pittance and telling him their musical fate, they'll probably be happy to know they'll have a good home. Some tapes I have are barely ten years old, although I admit they're in the minority in my library.
BTW, the specs I've included in my profile are for my new custom rig, which is built as of last post from the company doing the deed, and tomorrow it'll start on its way here (predictive arrival date is Friday the 8th). I'm happy to post the specs of my current/old rig, although it'll be a backup for emergencies (part of the reason it's going into redundancy, and the getting of the new rig, is that half its system RAM died a month ago; it only had 1GB to start with before that). Currently typing on it, I mean, which is why it might be relevant to other bodies.
