What Do You Use For "Channel Strip Tape"?
« on: June 09, 2012, 06:58:50 pm »

I've always used Scotch white plastic tape as it leaves virtually no residue, is easy to write on & easy to see. However, it seems to be getting hard to find out here. What do you use?

We have a brand here in Aus called Nitto that I use. It comes off easy and is bright white so pen shows up well.

No tape anymore.... type it in on the computer and it's picked up on the iPad.   I don't look at the actual mixer much ...

I don't like electrical tape or any kind of paper tape for console labels. My hands sweat when I work and the ink smears something fierce with those shiny surface tapes.

I use 1" white gaffer tape. It doesn't leave any residue unless you bake it for a month, and it smears much less. If I was going to do labels that had to survive for a long time I might use printed Avery labels on top of e-tape or gaff, with clear Scotch tape over them for protection.

I use 1" white gaff, too, but I've been seeing a lot of flourescent gaff on consoles these days if that's what floats your boat.

I normally use white nitto tape or white gaff however I did some work with a local church and they had like fridge magnets with different channel inputs labeled on each piece which you then just place on each channel. Made it a hell of a lot easier to read however it took you a bit to find what you were looking for.
