Description & Specs

The TEAC A-6100 was one of the first tape machines ever made for the sole purpose of mastering. During the development, we interviewed the original product designer who explained how TEAC engineered the A-6100 in 1973 to be the most reliable and best-sounding mastering deck possible.

And so the TEAC A-6100 was born. Indestructible and without compromise on any components, it was a huge success. In fact, the A-6100 with its admirable sound and Simul-Sync® technology was the core unit that evolved into the famous 80-8 multi-track. And now this officially certified digital version is here to add its unique sonic textures to your music.

Intuitive, easy-to-use controls
The T-RackS TEAC A-6100 puts all the controls from the original at your disposal, along with some additional features to help you create just the sound you're looking for. You can calibrate the record and playback heads, or choose from 2 tape speeds and 4 tape formulas for a wide variety of tape-machine effects. We've also included a number of presets and you can easily save your own.

To each its own sound
The TEAC A-6100 MKII mastering recorder is still highly sought-after today, thanks to both its robust design and incredible sound. Featuring controls to fine-tune your sound, including record and playback EQ settings, the A-6100 MKII is the one to add tape warmth and color to your master bus and more.

Re-creating the magic
Analog tape audio recorders are complex systems. They impart magic to the audio material, lifting the art within to a higher level. They add musicality to music.

What a tape machine adds to audio is the result of a number of interactions amongst several interdependent factors. More than just saturation, compression, or EQ alone, these factors work together, one affecting each other with the dynamics of music, adding a “movement” that goes into the soul of what we perceive.

Decades of music produced on these pieces of artful human engineering have tailored the way we think music should sound. It’s imprinted in our DNA.

From TASCAM DNA to IK DSP
For the T-RackS TASCAM Tape collection, each machine was chosen specifically by TASCAM and TEAC themselves, recommending particularly sought-after models from their history and helping IK source the best-sounding units. Each machine then went through a complete restoration to bring them perfectly back “to spec” before the scientific modelling process started.

IK’s DSP engineering team then took each stage apart, analyzed them in-depth, and produced a model of the entire magnetic tape-recording process. This model works in symbiosis with a powerful dynamic convolution engine to capture the essence of the real machines, faithfully bringing the complete picture of these complex analog engineering marvels to the digital realm.

Comprehensive Controls
All TASCAM Tape Collection plug-ins share the same set of controls to enhance the ease of use and allow for quick A-B comparisons among them. "

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
