Faster Way To Copy Tape To Digital?

A reader had a question about converting VHS tape to digital files. “Do you have to play the video tape all the way through to the end  of the tape each time??? Or is there a way to speed dub?”

The answer is a simple “no.” VHS tapes are analog, which means they need to be played out in real time as you convert them to a digital format.  The same is true for converting other analog materials such as albums and cassette tapes.  One of the great advantages to a digital file is the ability to make high speed transfers.
