Tape recording

Hello man, first of all thank you, im glad i can ask you something.

We see that you like to warm the sound recording it to tape. Do you do some sort of preparation before going into tape regarding mixing, or you go raw recording and then mix. I have the same tascam you showed in fact tv "how to" and im most concerned in warming vst's ofcourse.

Cheers from Brazil.

No preperation or secret ritual most of the time. Maybe add a littlebit more high in the mix, depends on how you want the tape noise ratio (if you have to use EQ to bring back some lost hi frequencies once recorded on tape you get more hiss ofcourse). I just put the whole track on the Tascam with the line stereo input (so it becomes a 2 track recorder), then play it back trying different EQ functions, like I said before that EQ can do wonders.

I don't use the Tascam all the time though, its a special ingredient that can help sometimes, but not always. Sometimes a track can sound worse on tape and often something in the computer can sound warmer, fuller, having more body then its tape can depend on so many things, its a sea of chaos....but thats what you get working with electro magnetic particles
