I Need DBX Type 1 NR decoding!
« on: April 25, 2009, 11:54:15 AM »

OK, here's a tough one. I have no idea where the best place is to ask this question, so I'm starting here. Maybe you guys can steer me right.

I have a 2 inch 24 track tape from around 1977, tracked on an MCI (JH-114, I think) at 15 ips that I need to transfer to digital. Here's the rub: It was encoded with DBX Type 1 noise reduction. The type 911 rack modules, I believe.

Does anyone know a studio that may still have a rack full of these things? Of course they'd have to have a 2-inch with a 24 track stack, and 24 channels of good conversion.

Am I dreaming?

I wonder if anyone's written some DBX DSP code so it could be restored digitally? That would make this simpler.

The DBX NR units are available and extremely cheap on evilbay.  It would be faster, cheaper and simpler to have someone already set up to transfer the tape for you.  Besides purchasing the units you'd have to have cable, connectors, and properly calibrate them.
