The point I was trying to make is that back in the day, recording studios such as Capitol Records in Los Angeles and Columbia's 30th Street usually would run four tape decks at once.

(A) to avoid generational loss on the backups; and

(B) have a "Native" mono set of tapes from which to cut mono LPs.

I have the utmost respect for Mr. Sax. We got along famously on a personal level, and the project I was running where he cut the lacquers is legendary, with the 2-LP set having sold for as much as $600 on eBay.

ciao,

john
