24/44.1, I don't do video but if I did 24/48, very rarely double those if I am intending analysis or special processing... though all my plugins oversample (I *think* all...)

HaHa. Wouldn't use that speed 40 years ago! If you can't do at least
7.5ips why on earth would you use tape these days? Fixated on watching
the reels spin and can't afford more tape? :-)
Just bounce the digital to tape if you want those distortions, at least
then you get a choice of any or all tracks with added noise and distortion.

I *was* intrigued by 3.75/8 track. Never seen that format - apart from 8 track cartridge that is Or were you referring to 8 track on cassette? Some of those had used to use double speed, hadn't they? (Had to do something to get some s/n ratio!) I did have 4 track Portastudios, some of which had double speed recording...
My old commercial 8-track demo studio back when such things were viable used 8 track 1" 15/30ips and was really very good sounding... for the epoch, anyway. I've been trying to find someone with an 8 track 1" deck to transcribe some rare material off to DAW >:-)

You're right, it's a Tascam 238 and it takes standard type two cassettes. Tascam used to have a similar tape mechanism in a couple of their later portastudios, but they could only track 4 channels at once, whereas this can take all 8. I think all their standard 4 track portastudios use double speed as standard. It doesn't sound good by todays standards, or the standards of the time to be fair. It takes a hell of a lot less space than a standard reel to reel though, and space is a problem at the moment. In a perfect world I'd be working on 16 track 2" but unfortunately I've just got a regular 1/4" twin track... somewhere

I seem to remember they had to stagger the heads to get 8 track sim recording to work. As I recall, the different manufacturers used different stagger factors which meant tape interchangeability was null

My 4-track porta was a bit better for that, but the Yamaha used DBX and the others Dolby C so still did not interchange. Now there are plugins to get the 'encoded but not decoded Dolby-A' sound, as if it was intended. Hrrrrr.
