Customer Question
I have a Fostex...

I have a Fostex X-12 multitracker. It seems to slow down speed on playback.

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your X-12?

Bought it on eBay about a year ago

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Nothing except paly & stop hoping it will play back at right speed

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

I wish I could add more. It just looses speed

After a wgile it slows down to a wah wah sound
Electronics Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 8 months ago

Unfortunately, the units do not come apart easily and it would need to be looked at.

What is your zip code?
