    I was just wanting to hear with my own ears the differences in 1/4in and 1/2 in recordings. I know I will loose some warmth through mp3's, but I would still love to hear some stuff.
    Thanks

    Pull my finger...

    I mean, click on my name, visit DigiSmigi's homepage. All cassette recordings. Same thing for most of the guys 'n gals in here. Except the cassette part. Most of em have reel to reels.

    Here's something done on a 1/4" machine a few years ago by me and my friend Doug.

    Hey Bigsnake00...here is a link to two songs that were recorded on a Yamaha MT50 4-track cassette...I am really happy with "Tiny Pieces" (a friend sang the vocals and played the guitar)...since recording these songs (by reading this board) I have found out how sub-par some of my signal chain is...I used a cheap mic for the vocals and I went into my computer using a Soundblaster Live soundcard ("Rain Keeps the Crud Off the Streets" is a strait mix down from the 4-track to the computer, "Tiny Pieces" was mixed to cassette and then recorded to computer)...I might have gotten a better sound with a better mic and soundcard. I used a couple of sub-$100 effect boxes (a Boss delay was used for the vocals in "Tiny Pieces")

    P.S. I just realized that cassette is 1/8 inch tape...so this doesn't really apply to your question...sorry

    Hey Bigsnake00, thanks...the songs may not be great but I think the equipement (relatively humble as it is) is good enough to capture a good song (that is, to me, writing a good song is the biggest challenge)

    The songs are fine examples of where production technique overcomes the limitations of 1/8" tape and narrow track width. Good job my friend.

    Oh, come-on ... ya gotta get yerself one of 'em open reel thangs!

    Btw, heard Nine Little Words and Moni's Song. The first one was just so damn fun to listen to and the second was very haunting and beautiful. Very impressive writing and production.
