Topic: Is recording on 4-track cassette still viable?
Replies: 40
Views: 11323

I used to mix in the box and occasionally still do but now more often mix to tape, either 1/4" or cassette, using Tascam rackmount units. I like the way tape sounds even with its frequency response limitations, and I enjoy the mixing process mixing in real time through a board and then on to the com...

+1 re. the Fostex VF-16..... I've used it often recording bands live at shows (multing each channel off the board) and it's amazing to have so much control mixing it down later. Drums especially benefit from a post mix. The Fostex does not have the candy that the Roland has but does have the basics....

I like it. I, too have always liked the sound of his electric piano sample on Where It's At. At least I assume it's a sample? Maybe a Wurly, or do you think it's a Rhodes?

Anyway...nice work. What is your recording setup?

238 Example....

Hey all.... Don't mean to hijack thread, but I also really enjoy my 238 (DBX) and have recorded a number of things on the lovely beast. This should possibly go in Listen to My Stuff, but I'm only including it here as it relates to ....the Tascam 238. The mu...

Other message boards like this.....

I'm sure they exist... Message boards that primarily feature music reviews from a production perspective, much like this subboard that I so dig. I know that there are artist specific boards aplenty, but what I'd like is what we have here, just more of it. I especially like when a classic piece of mu...

New Tascam 238 8track cassette effort.....

Hey, all.... Here is another example of modest playing, but hopefully improved mixing technique using my Tascam 238. I must say....after years mixing in the box I find it totally liberating to mix in real time through a board, tweaking eq, effect sends, pan/fader as you go. It's a bit terrifying kno...

Love this..... Have been recording to my DAW (Adobe Audition) for years, usually using a variety of outboard effects and compressors, and through a board, but always ultimately "printing" to the harddrive, and then mixed in multi-track fashion ITB. Lately, I've been having HUGE fun recording directl...

Tascam 238 Example...Surprisingly pretty Hi-Fi

Hey, all... Recently acquired a Tascam 238 8 track cassette and this is my first experiment with it. I've done a lot with a 234 and really liked the results...surprising for a 4 track cassette. So, imagine my surprise when I tried the 238 and found a little.... very little degradation in sound, but ...

I, too, am a fan of Donuts.... You know the story of how it was recorded/arranged? J. Dilla was dying of lupus and did practically all of this on his laptop from his hospital bed -- he'd just finished it before he passed on. What I'd like to know is .....did he have the final say on the mix/producti...
