Badgeholders, This is the opening announcement for the Page & Plant, Ames, IA - 10/12/95 CDR Tree. This is a Leaf signup only, the Branch structure is already complete! The tree will be relatively small by tape tree standards with only 6 branches supporting a total of 32 leafs. As soon as I have enough leafs the tree will be closed! (hint, hint) Branch Structure: 4 USA, 1 Canada, 1 Europe CDR - Compact Disc recordable. These discs are playable on any quality CD player. I say quality because there are some low quality players available on the market. Some low end boom boxes or no-name cd walkmans may have trouble with cdr's (cheap optics). Any Sony, JVC, Yamaha or like player should handle these discs fine! Note: for those of you with some CDR knowledge who may be curious, the discs are recorded in Disc-At-Once mode with the pregap set to Zero. Thus, when the discs are played there is No gap between tracks. I have advised the branches of this and they have assured me the recording mode will remain the same down through the leaf copies. Leafs: You will be required to send two (2) blank CDR's to your branch along with return postage. There is no substitute for good quality media. If the media fails it's a total loss, unlike tape you cannot record over it. Stick to Kodak (infoguard), TDK, Mitsui, or 3M (Imation). Typical pricing is about $3/disc. If you do not have a source for media I suggest you consider these two web sites, both are reliable and provide excellent service. http//www.necx.com/ http//www.tape.com/ --------------- To sign up as a leaf respond to this e-mail with the following as your SUBJECT: Iowa Include your location in the body of the message: USA/Canada/Europe When the structure is complete I will post it to the list. --------------- I mastered this show roughly two years ago, around the time the P&P tour was making it's way to Japan. It's a very good show and a nice warm-up to the Chicago affair of the following night. This was my first real attempt at mastering a CDR from tape, I am quite pleased with the results. Why Ames, IA?
