:open_mouth:
As soon as I get home I’ll try! (Thanks)


#22

It works! Thanks @scttcmpbll and @odevices. Sorry for being so dumb.

It’s awesome, @scttcmpbll! Wohooo!


#23

I just updated Trash Tape to include a control for Hiss. The incoming signal compresses the hiss much like on a real cassette. Download in original post.

This is so awesome that I just reduced my rig to sound like a $59 used cassette player from 1980: winning.


#25

Agreed, this is just too cool. I had to record a short nonsense noodling with the unit just to share how cool it sounds. I overdid the settings, sorry :slight_smile:


#26

I can’t express how much I love this unit. Inspiring.


#27

Maybe if we were to all HISS simultaneously :slight_smile:


#28

Yes!!! Thanks. I was playing around yesterday adding hiss but wasn’t satisfied with it.


#29

Thanks duude! Looking forward to checking out your custom units when v0.2 units get support in the current firmware (or if you rebuild them)


#30

You’d better check out today’s firmware upgrade :slight_smile:


#31

O man, didn’t know there was an upgrade!


#32

I was saying exactly this to my wife “I just spend thousands to be delighted at the simulation of a technology I bemoaned at the time of using it”!

I do actually have a cassette player in my vehicle, but have only 3 cassettes!

Eric at Landscape.fm is creating a new version of the following, one with recording capability!

I did see that in passing some time back! I’ll have a look at where it’s at now.

Edit: (actually the tape in my vehicle sounds like that quite regularly with NO human intervention!)

Of course there’s also the T-rex delay unit, but at around $900 USD i’m not sufficiently nostalgic! I have just had the notion to record the output of my Hilux cassette player in order to play back through Trash Tape, tho…very meta!


#35

I’m looking at the HC-TT more as a recording device to grab samples out of Eurorack and specifically the ER-301 to then feed back into the ER-301 with all of the inherent errors that will accompany playing tape by hand.


#36

Oh, i thought it playback only?


#37

The older sold out units were playback only, the one coming out in the new year has recording capability.


#38

Ahh, that’s a very interesting development and, yes, a great compliment to the Er-301!

(oh, i see i didn’t read your first post properly wherin you already mentioned the recording capacity! - and I just tried to add an “embarrased” emoji but instead chose a “kissing with eyes closed” one, highlighting my closer connection with a cassette generation than an emoji one! Although it is telling of the culture that an embarrassed emoji does not seem to exist!)


#39

Sounds awesome! @scttcmpbll I’ll totally be using this. :pray:

Time to add a Wet/Dry control :slight_smile:
