New Cassettes Made in Germany
While you can only buy new old stock diskettes, tapes are still being produced and sold. You might know the two videos on Youtube by Bloomberg and Big Great Story about National Audio, USA, being the last producer of tapes. Well, they're not alone. There is a company in Germany that also still produces tapes alongside with new vinyl records. You can read more about them in next issue's cover story. I bought a bunch of tapes (IEC-I) to test, and they work like a charm. Isn't it somewhat astounding that floppy disks are gone but tapes are here to stay?
