>a guide cassette sound
was meant to imply that I wanted a sound that was good for cassette, a medium with a unique sound that stands to benefit some music for some purposes, in the ears of some people. I didn't mean to open the door to opinions, sorry I made it seem that way
most cassettes are going to take a bit off the high end anyways so i don't see the point in doing that before you run the audio onto the tape unless you want a really drastic filtered sound.
also you're probably going to want to stick to type 1/normal bias cassettes if you want that "warm" type of sound that most people associate with cassettes. type 2/high bias and type 4/metal bias aren't going to do much to color the audio besides give it a higher noise floor.
ok, I did a test recording and my experience was that when there was a lot going on it was really distorted, then I re-recorded with the volume halved, and then it sounded perfect but the hiss over-powered it, is there any solution for this?
This was only with a few songs, most of them sounded really nice, mostly 60's psych stuff
what brand of tape are you recording onto? generic/no-name brands are usually pretty shit compared to tapes by known companies.
tapes from companies like BASF, sony, maxell, or tdk are usually your best bet.
Teac anon here. Anybody have experience buying brand new 1/4" tape
no but if you need to know where to get new tape reels you can buy them from national audio company if you're in the united states
it's got several different quality settings m8 so it can sound like garbage if you want it to or sound slightly lower quality than CD audio
>mfw the way it affects the quality
holy shit why would anyone ever damage their sound like that
After. Adding in vocals is part of the mixing process, and all mixing comes before mastering.
People that sell beats online master them so that they sound good and make you want to buy them, but ideally you'll want it unmastered (since after you mix in the vocals, you'll be mastering that end result). Actually, ideally you'd want unmastered stems, but it depends on who's selling them as to whether or not they'll do that I guess.
holy shit i lost it
just doin my job early since i missed the past few threads
I've been destroying cassette tapes, but they're not the right bias, and the tape doesn't move parallel to the heads, so the repeats don't always happen. It's annoying to have a working machine but no tape.
They don't have 7" reels. But I will probably buy their 10 1/2" reels and tape pancakes when I get some good NAB adapters.
