Makes eveything sound like it was recorded by Sandy Pearlman.

Do you prefer Type A or Type B? They should make a button that puts extra Noise in!

What about Surround Sound? Have there been any worthwhile rock recordings produced with this process to date? Personally, I have no way of listening to them, but it's been around long enough now that there must be some interest in it.

I remember seeing those records when I was a kid. Didn't you have to have a special record player with two needles to play them?
Posted: Oct 30, 2008 12:42 pm
Well, that's what I imagined at the time.

It's called "detaching the grounding wire".

ever play your stereo through a distortion pedal?

does not sound great.

delay works, though...

If you want all your records to sound like U2. No thanks! Gimmie Noise.

space echo? super reverb? my delay/sampler thing makes am radio pretty psychodelic...

Back when we used to take a lot of psychedelics, we put the TV sound through the stereo in my friends room through a delay pedal that we controlled. And likewise, he had the sound from his TV through the stereo in our room through a delay pedal that he controlled. We were watching one channel and he was watching another. after a while, the sound perfectly matched what we were seeing.

Only once have I ever used a tape deck where the Dolby actually worked properly - that is, everything sounded unnaturally trebly and harsh with the Dolby off. It was my old NAD which has since bitten the dust.

yeah, we just thought DOLBY meant bad.

same with cromium dioxide tapes...

Metal Bias

Posted: Oct 31, 2008 12:23 am
okay, yeah, METAL BIAS!

the name sounds so good... the tapes sounded so bad.

You're supposed to record with it enabled and then playback with it enabled. If you playback a tape that wasn't recorded with Dolby, then it will sound like shit. Ditto if you playback a Dolby without Dolby enabled. Basically, it was early compression of the higher ranges. Total gimmick for the home but great for film.

I never left cassette culture. I got a closet full. Bought a ton for $1.99 when Tower was closing. Great stuff like Johnny Cash Live at Fulsom Prison, Howlin Wolf, Robert Johnson, KC and The Sunshine Band, The Monkees. Sound great on my Boombox. Now if I only had a Space Echo to play it through...
Posted: Oct 31, 2008 12:34 pm
exactly. KC & Sunshine band takes on a whole new dimension!

A crazy roommate I had would play shit through a flanger on my stereo. He was from Hawaii too and prone to panic attacks (data included merely for any correlation). He ate a lot of creamed corn and ramen mixed together. He cried when I moved out with the television. Fucker never touched my Dolby A button but did manage to scratch a few of my records when using them as candleholders. See, now you made me remember. I hated that guy!

Still have the quadrophonic Deep Purple LP Machine Head which sounded amazing. That quadrophonic stereo (?) gave up on me long time ago though.
