ABSTRACT
Most of the time, recording on hard drive is a simple pleasure of engineering life. The article author admits to feeling a certain degree of engineering emasculation from no longer needing to dean the shiny tape heads, or lovingly care for a machine that could tear his arm off during a high-speed rewind. There was a time when he wasn't a computer geek. He remembers himself as an audio surgeon, armed only with a non-conductive screwdriver for aligning the tape deck, a wacky looking fish scale for calibrating tension, and an all-powerful razor blade for making extraordinarily crude edits on the flimsy tape.
