Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )

FYI i'm an electric only guy so no upright on here. soul/r&b marvin gaye - let's get it on, james jamerson on bass. masterpiece playing/tone, but particularly the last track "just to keep you satisfied" is perfection. ronnie mcneir - self titled (1972) bobby watson on bass. up front and warm soundin...

Re: Tascam 388 calibration guide / help

if you are monitoring via the headphone out on the bottom right of the unit, that headphone circuit is insanely noisy. don't be fooled by that noise, send the XLR outs to an interface/mixer/headphone amp and check the noise that way. should be a hell of a lot quieter.

Re: Herman Poole Blount

Karma is where i would start, Thembi is also excellent. Check out Lonnie Liston Smith and the Cosmic Echoes, its Pharoah's keyboard player who left the group and does the same thing he did with other musicians. Astral Traveling and Cosmic Funk are both excellent.

Re: Let's talk substance

The first time I tried it I did not dig it, so sour and..kinda made me think of things like dirty sock rinsewater. But a couple weeks ago the ac was down, and I was looking for a different buzz other than coffee..and so I tried it again. This particular brand/style goes down smooth. Weird that komb...

Re: Flood Recovery

no advice, but sending some positive vibes in hopes you're able to get it salvaged and back up and running. i've appreciated your posts and insights on here, i've also enjoyed your recordings you've posted. keep your head up, and i'm looking forward to the thread on that new garage studio :)

Re: Let's talk substance

i can't play all jittery. Hmmm. I kinda can't not. Which is to say I don't, unless I'm goin' the other way. It just seems somehow that, by tradition?, substance and music go together ... i'm guessing you're not familiar with frank zappa then. he was as out there as it gets and needed no substance. ...

Re: Tape Storage Question - In the supplied plastic bag or no?

yeah i didn't know if it protected from dust or something. they all ship with it (even my NOS scotch 207 i use) just trying to figure out the best method going forward. more than happy to toss it if it could cause issues.

Tape Storage Question - In the supplied plastic bag or no?

I'm starting to get a little big of a collection going vis a vis the 1/4" tape i use to record. The question is do you keep it in the plastic bag that comes with it inside the case? or just the reel inside the case with no bag?

Reel w/ tape
Plastic Bag
Reel Case

OR
