New replacement tape loops

Why don't you just take apart an old 8-track tape and make your own loops? Just get a 1/4" splicing block. I have found that this kind of tape (silicone lubricated) lasts longer and jams less in my tape echo. Editall makes good splicing blocks, look for one on ebay. I got a whole kit includ...

Do you use live drums or synths/sampling?

Right now I'm focusing on getting an old-school, dub drum sound. My goal is to mic the kit in a way that allows me to manipulate the snare and hi-hat sound for tubby-style effects.

It has a 6-channel, 4-bus mixer and a tape section that can record at regular or 2x speed with or without dbx. I'm very pleased w/ it...

I cant belive that the mutron iii is not used
