Four tape recorder techniques for minimal techno: looping, delay, reverse delay and saturation

February 28, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

A lot of nice old retro gear in this video :-)

four tape recorder techniques for minimal techno:
1) a tape loop system (1 recorder, top right)
2) long delay (2 recorders: top left and middle right)
3) reverse delay (bottom middle)
4) tape feedback/tape saturation on system 1, 2 and 3

The tascam 8 track is not doing anything here.. except being a rather expensive table for two other recorders,

“btw. the video in the second part doesn’t really match the music, the camera fell so I couldn’t use the original.. I wasn’t doing all that much except for letting the long tape delay saturate on itself for a very very long time…”
