Re: Reel to reel quality

Title: Re: Reel to reel quality
I also really dig an old 2track ferrograph that I use every so often.
That is disgustingly low fi, due to its unpredictable nature.

On a personal level I just love the simplicity that tape gives me I can obtain the vocal sound I want straight away. I like to distort the input to get that particular break up which i can then react to and use whilst recording. I also love being able to change the pitch of my music at will.
Tape gives me what i want straight away. Hard disk gives me other things but i find them less relevent to my music.
Ohh yeah and I finish things when i use tape!!!

I use a revox 274 4-track and a studer 810 2-track and 456 on both. nice to know someone else out there has the same taste in sonic quality. mind you, the tape saturation on the dl4 is pretty good....
