    Umm..wow analog is hard...

    I've been knocked down a few notches. I had some idea of myself being a decent musician but that was before analog. I now find myself hitting rtz over and over.

    I guess this is good, by the time I finish my first song I'll be way better at drums.

    I am so tempted to just patch some good loops together and run em back out to 4 tracks of the 16 track but I've sworn to take analog to heart.
    It's not easy.

    Pack it all up and send it to my house I actually find mixing on analog easier. But....loading the reels can be a drag when your in a hurry. Oh..but the sound....

    Well the mixing is easy, I was just talking about the tracking style. I don't want to paste things together anymore but I'm still used to having the option.

    Speaking of sound, where's this tape hiss that I've heard so much about? I find my 1" recordings are actually quieter and clearer than anything I've done on HD.

    ...and god it sounds so rock and roll!

    Analogue is a little bit more manual, and a little more time consuming, but well worth the time/patience/effert one has to invest in it.
    Slow down a bit, you will be well rewarded in your music.

    More time consuming? You hit record and go! Can't be LESS time consuming than that. It's all that bloody fiddling with software settings that is time consuming...

    Rege don't forget maintenance on the machines ( open reel) , alignments, calibrations, cleanings, rewinds, fastforwards, T/C dropouts,etc.
    actual comands for operations are quick.

    Yes reg, far more time consuming for someone who used to just play it three times in a loop and paste the best parts together. I now have to record and rerecord over and over.....I'm not that good at my own music yet.

    I just give up and end up practicing more eventually...probably better anyway.

    These admittedly take time, if you don't know how to do it, and have the bad luck of getting weirdly calibrated machines.

    Which I did.

    But it's more or less a one time operation. All recording software and sequencers I have used have been a constant struggle...

    "But it's more or less a one time operation"

    Not always, if your studio is busy, with clients bringing in their own tapes, done on other machines,you then have to recalibrate/align your machine to the clients tape to get the best possible playback.
    If you rent the tape, and the whole project is done on your machine/tape then it's not a big deal as far as time goes, for the maintnance part.
