August 15, 2016 1:57 am

oooooooh yes *sunglasses face*

August 15, 2016 2:06 am

You know I love chopped vocals, and these are the best!

Dig that punchy bassline and swirly synths.  Nice work!

August 15, 2016 4:25 pm

The fact that this was made only last week impresses the shit out of me!!!! Quite simply brilliant smile

Really impressed about the convincing "cassette" quality of the mix. Everything sounds just perfectly muffled... How do you do your magic, man?

It only takes me a day, but I need that whole week of not thinking about music to get properly stressed out about it.

Pretty much the same stuff I've mentioned before, but also tried this nice Reaktor Crap Cassette Emulator this week. Also pushed the compressor way harder than usual, the dry mix is barely listenable. Pretty much just did the opposite of what every book on mastering says.

impressive stuff!

Just gotta echo what everyone else said.  Awesome track.

August 17, 2016 4:41 am

UM I need to master my tracks like this.  Do I need Reaktor to use that emulator?

Man you are too good, I can't believe it!

That was probably my favorite brand of tape.  I still have some 4 track music on those

Yes, you do... although you can get pretty similar results with free vst plugins as well.
My typical chain is EQ'ing the high and low end out, FerricTDS for saturation, interruptor Wow & Flutter, a touch of white noise, lots of compression, sometimes flstudio's pitcher (for small pitch shifts here and there, there free autotune plugs that would work similarly)... Anyway there are lots of ways to get the grungy sound for free, even just using a cheap tape deck on slow, and messing with it. I should probably do that at some point, but there is something I like about creating the grunge digitally.

Ain't going to lie, we always got whatever was on sale

A very, very Trippy and Lyseric Effectchain, Professor.

The Maxell-dance. Cool.

August 18, 2016 12:11 am

Agree with all, cool sound indeed, love the chopped vox. I kind of miss tapes, but man it was hard to cue up the nxt track right, I guess that's part of the fun. I do miss that new tape smell though. Doing the opposite of what every book says on mastering sounds like a great creative technique, feeling inspired!

Love that struggling compressor sound

Cuing tape isn't a problem for this guy

I always write/produce through my mastering chain, which everyone says not to do because I like to live on the edge

Wow TapeMate sounds awesome.  How do you get the plugs working though?  Do you need Reactor for it?

Yep! It's kind of a one trick pony though, it's hard to make it sound like anything else than this. But I highly recommend reaktor if you like weird plugs, and reworking/writing your own. Like I've said in other posts, it's not too hard to recreate this sound using other vsts, although I wouldn't mind having a vst of this!
