You people do know that you can just stick some good tunes on a C90 right?

Nothing fancy necessary.

I feel guilty about owning 3 decks in excellent shape that I don't use: a Nakamichi CR-3a, a Denon 500, and a Denon 550. I'd be willing to sell the 550 for $100 and the CR3a for $200. The 550 is practically brand new. The CR3a has to go for more because it's a 3-head deck, and of course, because it's Nakamichi.

I like Maxell best, especially the Type II high bias, although it is very difficult to find. I usually just see Type I.

Here's how it works:

You make your tape, you send it to me (with some money to cover me sending them on*), I select who gets which tape (randomly), I send the tapes, you get the tape, you listen to the tape, you post here comments about the tape**.

I think we should allow CDs but if you really don't want to receive a CD then say so via pm and I'll make sure you get a tape. Also I presume anybody who can't send a tape will be able to at least play one?!

*I don't know how much yet. I'll check how much it will cost at the PO tomorrow.
**optional.

I love it when a plan comes together! Thanks for doing this, Pookie

I'm definitely down. I have a thrift store $5 special deck, a Pioneer, and my Tascam Porta 03. I like to do tape degradation tricks, and sometimes throw some reverb/post processing in there, heh.

I have been wanting to make a 2012 mixtape of some random strange vinyl cuts. This should give me an excuse to get it done. Possibly some original ambient/drone to be included/mixed in..

What exactly are degradation tricks......don't believe I've ever heard the term before?

Not sure if anyone would call it a trick, but my mixtapes have moments of two, three or even four things playing at one time : )

I don't know if you'd call it a trick or not but my tapes often have one song after another, in a row, on both sides of the tape.

I fear Spotify is going to kill the mix tape.

In ten years, the entire idea and culture of physical mixtapes is going to be antiquated.

High Fidelity is not going to age well.

Everything happens "in ten years". Why is that?

To be honest the idea of physical mixtapes is already antiquated. This happened "ten years" ago.

Yeah, right. Remember the digital revolution? LPs were going to be a thing of the past by the end of the 80s.

Look around you. Cassette tapes, LPs, they're still around. A few companies, very few, of course, still make NEW cassette decks.

These things are too good to go away completely.

I'm 100% in! I prefer to receive a mixtape, but am willing to accept a CD if needed.

Instead of me clogging up your IN BOX Pookie, just send me a Private Message with your address and the amount of cash I need to send.

Sometimes, when I have like a really snazzy synth sound, like too snazzy sounding for a lofi track, I record to tape, with a bit of reverb. Then play the recorded synth line (or whatever) through the mixer, with perhaps a bit more reverb , and record again to tape. And again to tape. So its like the 3rd or 4th generation recording. I dunno it gets pretty smeeary/tape saturation/very degraded sound. I'm just using the format to degrade the audio. I always like to say, "Want a new effect? Invent a new format." Not sure how much that pertains to this mixtape, but I'll prob still do something special... not sure yet.. I do love the tape format, and the effects it produces, and if anyone thinks they are out of fashion then they haven't been paying much attention!

yeah thats a good trick! except it doesnt work on my 4-trk/reel tape. Pretty weird hearing Thurston play boths sides of a tape at once tho! Blasphemy!

You could send a tracklist or upload the mix and have someone dub it to tape??

I look forward to getting it!

There are a few more people who have promised a tape (or CD).

I've made a tape which I'm not completely happy with. Trouble is my tape deck on my stereo has stopped working. I have a tape player which I'll attempt to connect up. If not the one I've done will have to be it!
