How to Copy an Audio Cassette

Equipment: ACC - 2000 Cassette Duplicator
Tape Specifications: Ensure that tapes to be copied to are as long as or longer than the length of the original tape.

  1. Turn the machine on (the power switch is located on the back of the machine above the power cord).
  2. Ensure the "Side Select" is set to AB to copy both sides.
  3. Ensure the machine is set to Auto.
  4. Ensure that Channel 1 and Channel 2 are set to the 12 o'clock position.
  5. Put the original tape in the slot labeled ORIG (Side A up).
  6. Put one to three blank tapes of appropriate length into the slots labeled COPY (Side A up).
  7. Press the Rewind button (to ensure all tapes are rewound to the beginning).
  8. Press the Copy button.*
  9. Repeat as necessary.
  10. Remove all tapes once completed.
  11. Power the machine off.

*Note: If the copy tape(s) is/are longer than the original, DO NOT fast forward the tapes before copying side B. This allows students to flip the tape over for continuation of a lesson rather than forcing them to fast forward/rewind the remaining space on the tape.
