This is the classic "no frills" production workhorse. For musicians and production studios, this two-head cost-effective cassette deck is ideal for mastering and mixdown. The direct-drive transport provides optimal tape speed stability, which keeps the wow and flutter problems found on other cassette decks to a minimum. The gear and clutch input controls make level adjustments easy by allowing you to lock the controls together, or use independently. The 112mkII also features a parallel port for external control and an optional balanced connector kit, making it flexible enough to integrate into any production studio.
