Re: Good Ole Fashioned tape looping
>Has anyone managed to come up with a single machine system? Would this
hit the record head, using some kind of tape tension kluge, pull the tape
away from the machine, pre-capstan, so that the distance between the
record and playback
heads is increased. I've been messing with a Dokorder that I picked up a
weeks ago and it seems to me this could work. Any ideas?
Well, what I have tried involves a three-head tape deck and a continuous
(from an old answering machine). It didn't work, but I need to try it
again, by finding
an old broken down deck:
Hopefully, I can simply swap the record and playback heads around, and
give me 30 or 60 seconds of unsynchronized delay. If necessary, I could
add a speed
control too (even linked to a pedal?) Needs a mixer, too, and Dolby C
want retro lo-fi)...
