TASCAM 246 cassette tape processing

Hi guys, first post here on gearslutz. Hope this isn't too late to respond, but thought I could make a valuable contribution to this thread.

LiquidChild, I ran your Drone 1, Drone 2 and Gun sounds through my Tascam 246 onto tdk sa high bias tape.

I recorded it at 3 3/4 ips, then halved the speed playing back at 1 7/8 and then added two more variations at that speed (pitch control way down, and pitch control way up).

I didn't add any eq but had dbx nr on. So this test was not so much for trad reel tape sound, but for the Tascam 246 4 track cassette sound.

Hope it helps or is at least fun to check out.
