No, machine issues, because I have hundreds of thousands of albums on various drives.

when you say "space issues", do you mean on your own machine, or are they more like band width issues?

I kinda have to do them in 320k-bit as a broadcaster dealing with space issues.

I prefer to use .flac for recordings, then make an mp3 version of them for use on things like a phone or other portable device.

The only thing I don't like about transfering tapes to 320 k-bit mp3 is having to mess with the azimuth adjustment.

personally, I like the aphex in2:
http://www.aphex.com/products/in2
as it has individual level controls on each channel, plus a rather useful optical compressor, which comes in handy if you have to crank things up a bit for some quieter parts of a recording, but don't want to over do things on the louder parts.
as far as tape decks go, I personally use a marantz cp430, as it has the biost adjustment, and is a 3head machine. plus as a portable machine, it doesn't take up a lot of space when being used, and can easily be stored away, when not in use.
when I had my full studio, I did used to have a really super teac deck, which had just about any sort of adjustment one could think of, plus a wired remote. it could also work at double the normal tape speed, for making better quality recordings. but unfortunately I didn't keep a record of it's model number.

Could this be accomplished with an audio interface? If so, which one would you recommend? Also, which tape deck would you recommend?

I would agree with the below.
as whilst yes there are tape machines with USB connections, from those I have seen, the actual decks do tend to be of rather poor quality.

hi there if u want to transfer your tapes on to your pc
i would invest if u can in a good quality tape machine
that has controls for alining the play and record heads,
as different tapes r recorded with different head positions.
if your soundcard has a 3.5 jack socket,
then plug a mixer in to the line in socket,
and plug your tape machine in to one of your faiders,/line ins on the mixer.
hope this helps.

Hi,

Is there such thing as a tape deck that can be connected to a computer through USB?
