My Ipod is stuck on 3-3/4 speed and all of my 7-1/2 ips music sounds liiikkkeee thhiuuuusss geerrruhhhgggg whereerewhuuh. . .(We've gone old skewl in the studio this week!)

Or. . .my ipod is stuck on 78rpm. . .and all of my music sounds like ti-nkle-tinkie-tinkle-tinkie, ect! Ha! (I feel tremendously more intellegent for having typed out these sounds :)
Actually someone needed some reel to reel tapes dubbed, cleaned up and put on cd.  I haven't had my 1/4" reel to reel hooked up in a while.  Well. . .I set it up and tested it before they arrived and sadly I found out if was sick.  It only will playback at 3-3/4 ips.  I used to have three players and I got rid of the other two leaving me with one (yes admire my stellar mathuhmatikal abiliteez).  Now I remember why I had three.  It is not very often that i need 1/4" reel but when you do you do! (the inner depth of this logic is beyond the scope of most peoples ability to grasp and conjure) I may get an engineer friend to take a look at it.  He can probably get the wasp nests out while he's in there.  Hey maybe he can rig in a USB plug like these new record players. . . hmmm. . .
(I actually do have some 78rpm records in the studio. . .but only for decor :)

Happy weekend! I hope it goes at the correct speed! :)
