Hi guys, does anyone have any tips to mess with the OP-1 tape playback to get that cassette worn sound? I’ve being able to mess with the play speed to get some irregular playback, but I can’t seem to actually record it??
Boards of Canada is prob the best reference for the textured playback I’d like to try.
I don’t just want to sample textures, I ideally want to degrade the overall playback of that makes sense.
I get some good initial results with the bp filter (the one which looks like a driving arcade game) with lfo modulation, but to get proper wow & flutter I send the audio to DUST running on an Organelle, or to an actual 4 track recorder
Hi @JohnnyEgo I tried this technique last night but it sounds like it is actually sampling it live from the mic with a heap of unwanted outside/white noise which kind of sounds awful and takes away the original recorded sound? Unless I’ve missed something major here? And idea?
Thanks for getting back to me. But as I mentioned, I tried it and was able to record it, but it’s acting like a “live” sample and letting in a heap of white/unwanted noise as a result.
All I want to do is effect my recording with the playback speed (with the blue encoder).
Using the Ear while recording drastically effects the original recording WAY WAY too much to the point that the original gets completely drenched in live white noise out with the Ear sampling method. Does that make sense?
To be completely clear - effect the original recording with playback varying speed. Thats all.
You Can vary the recording speed with the blue encoder. That would give you the effect you asked for. Maybe you should first record to album then record the album playback with the blue encoder trick to tape.
