Korg have announced a new volcano. It's a cassette player.
Looks nice tbh.

The design looks thought out, maybe it's a prototype and
they're doing this as stealth market research, to see if
people treat it as a joke or want it. IMO four track
cassette recorders are awesome, Fostex and Tascam used to
sell tons of them, and if they put out one in a Volca size
it would sell squillions.

You can get plugins that sound like any of the volcas or
better. Analog modelling is crazy now. But for some people
it's having tangible gear that makes their nipples hard.

nice, I haven't been keeping track of plugin technology for
a long while, its good to hear it is getting to a high
standard now

but real analog is THE BEST you know cause it’s warmerer
and shit and when the moog bass rumbles i can feel it INSIDE
ME

Plugins are fine for 99% of situations, the listener doesn't
know or care about the hardware just the audio aesthetic.
When I use tape it's because the machine is fucked and the
tape is fucked and I'm recording live something that will
never be generated again so the imperfections and disasters
are part of the composition. If there was a tape plugin that
was really unpredictable and you could playback at half
speed and it sounded exactly like slowed down tape I would
use that.

Digital can take analogue perfectly, it just requires insane
obsession to tiny imperfection.

the tascam 414 can work wonders when you bounce tracks to it
and use it as a quick and easy final 'once over'.

i wonder if elektron analog heat would be a good substitute
but can't exactly find the $$$$ to buy one and test it out.

analog heat is the cheapest stereo saturation unit. if
you're ok with mono you can try line level pedals too

Yeah, I think it's definitely stealth market research. The
design is too functional and polished, and not nearly funny
enough, to be nothing more than an April Fools "joke". Or
maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part. It'd be great
if they made them; I'd love to pick one up for tape looping
with my modular.

i disagree. i find working with plugins a very different
experience than working with trackers, or with hardware, or
playing bass in a jam session. there are times when i'll
have exactly what i want in my head, and in that case, sure,
it doesn't matter...

...but, usually, i'm more just starting with a mood, a few
vague ideas. the environment in which i flesh it out,
totally does shape the results... and vice versa, as i've
learned to think "oh, no, that's a hardware track" or "i'd
have to do that in a tracker." so, even when i do know what
i want, plugins are not always the path of least
resistance.

cite that autechre quote about "a dialogue with the
machines." plugins, trackers, hardware, jam bands all have
slightly different dialects, and from there it's what feels
like the best tool for the job
