re: CT-M6R

Does anybody know if there's a way to to turn off the music search feature on this unit so that it could play straight without issue? We've attempted to use these units to transfer multiple tapes to the computer without little user intervention, but the music search feature will ruin our recordings as it fast-forwards or rewinds whenever the recording is not up to par. It thinks there's silence and starts searching in the middle of our transfer.

Do you have any suggestions or perhaps an alternative high quality multi-tape deck that does not have this feature?

I forgot to mention the obvious. Have you tried cleaning and _Demagnetizing_ the head? (If so, then see my original reply).

re: CT-M6R

If the tape deck detects any longer than 15 seconds of silence, it will "skip" ahead until it finds a signal. This feature is not something that can be "turned on and off." It is part of the way the "Relay" playback feature works. You make reference to the recording being "not up to par." Are you sure the the unit itself doesn't need a playback level adjustment? See the Service Manual for the "Playback Level Adjustment." If it is set too low, that condition would _definitely_ cause your problem.
