Sampling should be fine, especially with a Vic tape which probably doesn’t have any turbo-loader thingie built-in (those tapes can be pretty tricky).


Just make sure you sample in MONO! On some tapes you get better results by doing an 8-bit sample by the way, you might want to try that too. 8 bits, less room for “nuances” -> less possible errors. At least the theory is sound. ;)

To what medium did you copy it? WAV file or another tape?

Another tape.

Mmm. Not the best (although that's already a very good thing). Since you're not going to sell your original copy (I hope!), it's not a hurry, but do you think you would have the necessary hardware/software to digitalize your original tape? I think any recent Sound Blaster or equivalent should be enough, with some sampling software (some software included in Windows may be enough), and an audio cable from a tape player to your sound card.

Trix (or anyone else), do you have any idea of how to *really* correctly preserve tapes? I'm more on the floppy disk side of things, so I may be wrong about the tape quality preservation...
