fun video about how it worked in the old days
I wasn’t alive at this time, but that’s what I love about those days that should be given more thought.
Do more with less.
yea really impressive what they achieved with so limited tools. And how Software can give birth to New genres like jungle, the sound you could only create with a tracker. Its like live programming in a simplyfied way ^^
Lot a memories, I made music like that in the 90’, but on PC386 with ScreamTracker and I had a Sound Blaster card! ^^
I used lots of cassette too because that was really convenient: on a cassette you can record lot of songs in audio (MP3 was not here, and floppy disks was too small to share musics rendered wav files).
Today there is Soundcloud
awesome ^^ i think there is a kind of cassette revival going on right now, but the resolution is not the best compared to digital i believe.
The audio is not bad on a cassette, but of course it’s not hifi. The sound has a lo-fi touch, around 20 khz. I remember it has some whitenoise especialy when re-recoreded.
But I recently found some lost original cassettes of 90’ songs and I listened theses, I was surprised by the quality on a good stereo player. But I admit that fit with with 80’-90’ songs.
it defenitly has its own character, and some people might strive for that like with the mpc 2000. i even saw somebody djing with cassettes and its durable, they now even archive digital files on magnet tape because it has a longer lifespan than hdds
