Cassette Deck 1 - New Nebula tape set!

Postby Cupwise » Tue May 10, 2011 9:15 pm

Finally, after many setbacks and delays, it's ready! This set was made with 11 different tapes, most NOS. The very well known Tascam 122 mkIII was used, and a quick online search can reveal a lot about the history of this deck. It was considered an industry standard in broadcasting and other fields.

Check out more info at the site. You can download the manual, a few demo programs, and listen to audio demos.

That's great news Tim.
Seems like a dope library !
Definitely useful since we don't have high quality Cassette Deck except the small TEAC in R2R ...

Nebula was missing that !

Thanks.

PS: And the price is insane. ;)

Fuji CrO2 Dolby kills too !
Has somebody already tested the crystal high Sony Cassette from Nebula programs (2 years old) ?

I'm gonna sample a Tascam PortaStudio 424 soon. Might be a cool effect or if nothing else a good joke when mixing with a client. :-)

I thought those would be good to sample too. I might be mistaken, but the problem is that none of them have 3 heads. If you look in the forums (maybe even over at the old acustica site), it's been discussed that with tapes the only way to get a good sample is with a 3 head machine so you can monitor off of the tape while recording, which minimizes wow/flutter.

I've never tried recording, rewinding, playing/sampling, which you would have to do with the porta (again, unless i'm mistaken). You might get something workable, but then if your tone set (used in sampling) is ~20min long, your 'wet' tones might be off by a small fraction of a second after you record them back to digital.

Then again, with some thought/luck, you may be able to get something good out of it. On my page for this set, you can see that I mentioned how I had to use Adobe Audition to remove some wow/flutter even though this deck DID have 3-head monitor while record ability. The programs were unusable without that 'restoration' step. It's probably still worth trying just to see. good luck!

Nothing wrong with that , Love character programs.It's good to have a large palette to work with you never know when you might need that sound

I actully think sampling bad cables would be great as you could get some real good mud when ya need .Just a thought I'm sure some classic records have been made with bad cables! Crazy stuff.

Does that sound wrong?
