Pastorale, a very old recording

Recommended Posts

Not bad. Nice tune. I could hear the other guitar. Was that you also? What mic was you using?

 

I got some old stuff I might post.

Hey grem, thanks for listening. Back then I recorded on two cassette decks, record a track on one deck, plug that deck in to a second one and record another part. Mic was probably the free mic that was included with the cassestte decks, can’t remember ‘twas forty years ago 😜

Rik - I used to do the very same thing and achieve (what I thought) were spectacular results (in reality they were probably  spectacularly bad).

How could my 16-year old self ever have imagined that over dubbing would be as easy as it is now. Today, all those original tapes lie either lost, damaged or broken - a metaphor for the intervening forty years I guess. 

This is getting far too nostalgic, I'm off for a lie down...

Thanks for sharing this - sounded pretty good to me considering the set up.

Hey Andrew, thanks for listening, I did put some of those early cassette recordings on a cd-rom, talking about nostalgia 😜

Very nice.  🙂
I used to record on a fostex 8 track cassette 🙂

There is a magic about those old days and the tracks, also how they sound!

I can't believe how clean this is coming from a sound on sound recording.  Didn't seem to lose much fidelity at all through the bouncing.

Hey Gary, thanks for listening, 8 tracks on a cassette , lucky this only needed one bounce 😉

Hey John,thanks, one bounce is nothing, I did some old Pink Floyd stuff that got pretty psychadelic after ten bounces😜
