Reference Laboratory calibration tapes
which are simply the best around. Every studio should have these tapes
to make sure the decks are aligned to international standards and are
operating at the best possible performance levels. If you're unsure
what operating level you're actually recording at or if you're
questioning if your deck is really tweaked to perfection or not, you
these tapes. There's no other reliable way to do it.
