So, is there any modern audio interfaces that can handle 12 bit/32 kHz?

How do you guys transfer your long play tapes?

Sam at Rebooted Electronics. He's local to me in Kansas but is possibly willing to take in shipped work.

His specialty is cassette decks, turntables and vintage amps but he did a great job on two Tascam DA30s and two Nak MR2 cassette decks for me.

Doesn't cost anything to open up a dialog about what you want done.

I don't have any LP tapes and have never had to transfer anyone else's but I do have a Fostex D5 DAT deck that supports LP mode. I play DATs digital out to a Sound Devices USB Pre and use it as my soundcard to record in Wavelab. WL has 32kHz as an option for sampling frequency but if for some reason it didn't work I'd have to go analog out and use the USB Pre as A>D converter.

if anyone wants to send me a LP tape to test I'll be happy to.

Thanks for that!

Is this lineage possible?

DAT-tape (LP mode, 12 bit/32 kHz) > DAT-recorder (with LP mode) > SPDIF > Tascam DR-100MKII

Seems like the DR-100MKII has SPDIF input and can do 32 kHz recordings. But what about 12 bits? What am I going to do with that?

Are there any issues converting 32 kHz to 44,1 or 48 kHz in post?

you can resample to any sample rate in software, there are no restrictions

this link suggests the 12-bit is a non-linear format, so im unsure what sonic differences, if any, would result by dumping it into a 16-bit LPCM file

So, as long as  the DR-100MKII can handle 32 kHz I will be fine?
