Fall Tape Camp!

Tape Camp is back and you don’t wanna miss it!

Join us September 24th-26th, 2016 for a weekend packed with demonstrations, lessons, and hands-on fun. Act fast, spaces are limited!

Tape Camp is a weekend of hands-on analog recording and networking for people of all ages! During the two-day workshop (Saturday & Sunday), participants will learn the differences and similarities between analog & digital recording through discussion, demonstrations, and hands-on practice.

We’ll bring in an acoustic act on Saturday afternoon, and at the end of the weekend, we bring in a band for participants to try out their newfound techniques on — everyone gets to engineer, assist, tape op, punch-in, and learn how to use our “Mara Machines” to the fullest!

With a few add-on packages, participants have a chance to learn all about vinyl cutting & tape machine alignment:
