This Tape Camp takes place September 24th-26th and will focus on these workshops-


SATURDAY will be spent demonstrating the differences and similarities between analog and digital recording.  We set up a vast array of analog reverbs (plates, delays, echo chambers) and discuss how to better use your own recording setups in a more “analog” way.   Towards the end of the day we bring in a talented singer/songwriter to record on tape – this helps us focus on vocal, piano and acoustic guitar recording techniques.

 

SATURDAY NIGHT will focus solely on vinyl cutting and will take place in our lacquer cutting suite. Hosted by our cutting engineer Cameron Henry, this is an in-depth look into the vinyl world!

 

SUNDAY we bring in a full band to try all of our new found techniques on- and everyone gets to engineer, assist the engineer, tape op, punch in and really learn how to use our “Mara Machines” to their fullest!  At the end of the weekend you’ll even be able to take the digital files (transferred from tape) home to play with in your own recording setup!

 

MONDAY will will focus solely on the art and science of tape machine alignment.  The fundamentals of elevated levels, bias and head alignments will be thoroughly explained.  After an alignment is demonstrated to the group, each person will align the machine (with guidance) and then there will be a quiz, complete with prizes!
