Re: William Pierce of WCRB

I have a bunch of blank 8-tracks for occasional use in my studio. If I need
a continuous sound effect/whatever in the background (thunder, rain, crowd
noise, etc.), where less than professional or broadcast quality is
acceptable, 8T's work fine. The sound from my units is more than adequate
and that's great when you don't have the bucks for the equipment the pro's
