    Post Your Analog Recordings Here...

    Seeing as we've been talking about this, and seeing as I've just stumbled out of another Lonely Few live to two track recording session here is one of the results.

    Fast Food - a song about how the industry has our best interests at heart...

    Recorded via the Studer 089 to the Revox PR99 two track 1/4" with all of us in the same room with no effects or compressors using a bunch of old mikes including an AKG C414B-ULS, AKG D190, AKG D112, EV RE10, EV RE11, EV PL6 (x2) EV RE200 and a Sennheiser e606. No di's or AD conversions during recording as usual. Oh, and a megaphone.

    Mastered (if you can call it that) to the Nagra 1/4" full track mono recorder through a few bits of outboard and digitized to a 320 kb mp3 via a 48kHz/24 bit .BWF made on the Fostex CR500 master recorder from the Nagra's playback head as it was being mastered...

    With a bit of luck, we might get this thread as a sticky?

    So what's exactly wrong with cassettes then?

    Are there any particular rules or requirements for this?

    For example, are digital processors allowed? Most of my instruments are based on sample-playback (albeit emulating vintage instruments).

    What about the radio play I'm working on where the dialogue was submitted as MP3 or WAV files by the actors, and then assembled on tape?

    Dunno JP. I guess I meant having a good chunk of tape in there somewhere. Maybe just put a note on the post saying where the tape was used and leave it at that?

    Then again, anybody out there recording on wire or cutting vinyl or lacquers? \

    Any one else care to comment?

    Side 1 and Side 2.

    Recorded summer 2006. Invited band mates over to jam for one day in empty house, set up fostex x-24 four track cassette to record for the day. No eq, overdubs... only had a volume and pan knob. Recorded live straight to cassette then mp3.

    I believe it should be for people who track to tape or a good part of there recording was recorded to tape before mixdown. I wouldn't think recording all instruments straight into protools and just slapping the mix to tape then back to mp3 is really an 'analog recording'.

    JP, seems like you understood this to be a 'all analog recording' where nothing that are listening to ever went through AD or DA converters (except putting final product on computer). We talked about that 'all analog' stuff a few months ago on here and although it is really really cool, 'pure' analog stuff like Lonely Few by jedblue here is awesome (good work mate) but i dont think we should restrict this thread to only that.

    A dance song that only has digital instruments like keyboards and drum loops but recorded to tape sounds awesome in my opinion... i have done stuff like that and would love to hear similar stuff from other people.

    So i say digital instruments (drum machines, digital effects, dig processors, keyboards etc.) are fine... just most the stuff recorded should have been tracked to tape.

    As analog as it gets>>>>

    Recorded in 1976/7 or so. The writer is Tim Gadban from Minneapolis. His band was called d'Gadband. "Ah Ha" is by the drummer, Tim Gries. He said it and I left it in there. Multitrack = Tascam 80-8. Mixdown to Teac 7300-2T. Console = Prototype Auditronics 16x8. Vocal Mic = Neumann U-67. Three drum mics, one on kick and 2 U-67 on overhead. Sparsely used reverb = EMT Plate. I can't recall what was used to "flange" the guitar, but I'm sure it wasn't digital (probably some sort of bucket brigade device). Cut to 4 song EP on Vinyl (either 500 or 1,000 copies were out there). This is an MP-3 from a vinyl dub. I can't find the mixed master, although I think I still have the 1/2" master around here somewhere..... Enjoy and feel free to comment.

    Some pix of the studio: http://www.pbase.com/rking401/image/3371040

    I've got some others that I would like to upload, but covers can't be uploaded unless in the pulic domain . Here's a public domain (I think) cover that was recorded live in concert in probably 1975. Recorded to a Teac 3340, mixed to the same 7300 as above. "Console" = 2 Teac Model 2 with external low z transformer inputs. I also used the 4 mic inputs on the 7300. The band is the Cooper Street Band from Minneapolis. Here's a pic of my location rig (shot the night of this recording): http://www.pbase.com/rking401/image/3371059

    Nice recording Richard. To me I hear alot of The Who in this song.
    I was wondering why you took the two track to the live gig?

    Well, personally I think you guys should share your stuff with everyone in the MP3 Clinic. Who knows, you might turn a few people on to analog or bring back some former digital converts. I think that by keeping your stuff solely in the Analog section, you're missing out on sharing it with people who wouldn't normally come in here because they are digital. That seems a waste.

    But, I also feel it's your section and you guys are the ones who hang out here, so if you want a stickie, I can do that for you. I'll keep an eye on it for a while and if it loses activity, I will unsticky it. Cool??

    peace.

    The 7300 has a built in 4x2 mic mixer which I used to get more mic inputs. Interesting you should mention the Who connection. The EP got reviewed by the local music rag and they said the track sounded like a lost track from Quadrophenia. I took that as a great complement. Thanks.

    Sounds great! It is a bit Who-esque.
