AKAI CS-F9- how 2 calibrate SPEED with 1500HZ tone tape

AKAI CS-F9- how 2 calibrate SPEED with 1500HZ tone tape

The Akai CS-F9 is a solid single side cassette player
with excellent specs and runs quiet and strong.
Very powerful fast foward and rewind mechanism with sleek design
makes this a real diamond in the rough.


To find the screw you need to turn to adjust the motor speed
you have to remove the faceplate on the tape door.

It simply requires gripping both sides of the door and pulling up and toward

If it takes "too much" to remove, stop for a second and readjust you don't
want to break the door off.

The speed on my deck (I'm unknown if it was ever serviced before I
obtained this item) was pretty close to being perfect as these things
can get. For demonstration in the video I deliberately offset the screw to
an extreme speed difference.  These voltage controlled motor speeds
are near impossible to get a perfect phase with the test tone but to come close
you need finess it and learn the 'tone'.  LIke I say in the video, it's soooo sensitive
even pulling out the screw driver can change the speed a slight bit so be
aware of this and keep the tone playing just in case.

FYI - you can use practically any audible tone it may be trickier with higher frequency

Here is a video of some of the functions (Minus a record demo) -

POST #1-2018 CREATIVE ELECTRONICS-find enclosed "the last of c.e. jones"-1975 canada

CREATIVE ELECTRONICS-find enclosed "the last of c.e. jones"-1975 canada CE197


2018 will be the year freQazoidiac delves into the History of the Music Industry Arts "MIA" college program and it's associated recordings, at least on LP record that  were released as year end
demonstrations on vinyl.  In my heart I wanted to do this at least 10 years ago
but it took me many years to find the completion of the series of LP's released, the one I was
having the hardest time finding.. it was like mythological status.. was the 1st cornerstone LP
featured here today.  Ended up finding a copy this past summer at a Record store in London
Ontario..which I can count on for ignoring good records and selling for pennies.  Yap,
taste is subjective, and in this case,  I can count on 6 record store employees focusing on the
stereotypical rarities and classics and boosting their price up..while the gems falling through the
cracks of their fingers.   Oh the joy of leftovers.

Starting in 1969-1970 Tom Lodge, of Radio Caroline fame, was residing in Canada as a DJ
and was asked to start a program at Fanshawe College, London Ontario Canada that would focus
on the new sounds and  techniques in the audio/music recording industry.

Initially focus was on the technical side and the new Synthesizer market heard and seen on stage among some of the most popular groups of the day, showcasing Robert Moog's creation the Moog, and other manufacturers such as Roland. This concept quickly grew into a full fledged
music recording studio with stock of various instructors from all areas of the Recording industry,
nearing the end of the Creative Electronics program before it morphed into the MIA which exists to this very day, the students even helped with the building and design of the structure itself.

This LP represents the 5 years at it's very end, turning into the MIA course.  More history hopefully to  come since this is a work in progress and there are scant details so far. I hope to gather student body experiences as well as 'what happened to them'  and some bios about the actual course instructors.

Many involved in this recording alone have gone onto many projects in the Canadian music industry.
Simply follow the discogs entry I worked on for a few days to connect some dots with all the people

For example the sought after album by "The London Experimental Jazz Quartet -INVISIBLE ROOTS " features personelle  that were in the C.E. course and play on the LP.

Creative Electronics Fanshawe College London Ontario
Canada Course Music Sampler compilation.

This appears to be the only Album issued during the 5 year
run of the program before it turned into t he MIA or Music Industry Arts
program still run to this day.

If anyone has any info regarding other recordings released by students
it would be appreciated if you shared in the comments or if you
or someone you know attended the program.

~freQazoidiac came from beyond the 33rd dimension!

The cosmic tide had opened for the time to enable
the song structures of the collected past to be
placed into this chosen virtual dimension for a current
but unknown period of existance.
