Vintage technology: 'It sounds so much cleaner'

I used to love these :frowning:

Is there any vintage tech that you miss?

I miss making mix tapes. I used to make them for all my friends. One time I made a tape of Neil Young and other sad music and gave it to my boss. :joy:


Cars before backup cameras and all that ■■■■ was added. Too ■■■■■■■ much


I have to admit that i like my gas kettle instead of the electric one :slight_smile: and my record player is a nice thing to use.

anyone remember typewriters? i have a penchant for one of those but i’ll never get one haha, i would like one though, if i had a personal garden i’d like a cast iron stove and i could use it as a barbeque or sometthing, even an old school fire pit sounds nice.

One time i went to this place and there was an exhibit and i was tired so i sat in the exhibit and it was an old type small living room with fireplace and stuff it was nice and cosy but i was told i wasnt allowed to sit their, it was nice.


I love my reel to reel, but it’s such a pain in the arse to use that it mainly gets looked at these days. I don’t bother with cassettes now, either. They’re in storage. So are most of my CDs and DVDs. I don’t find that old stuff sounded that much better. New speaker tech is bloody amazing. Two Echo Dots and a sub stack up against my old Bose 901s for sure. I do run some stuff on my downstairs rig through a tube processor as I like that warm sound, but that’s about where my nostalgia tops out now.

Do I miss dirty vinyl, cue burn, and tape hiss? Nope. Skipping records and having to rewind? Hell to the nope.

I make the best damned 24/7 mix tape on the planet.



I just uploaded my monthly 2hr show and it took a lot of work, I wish i could just set my levels and do the whole show in a oner, i seem to be doing an awful lot of editing here :frowning:

I also played the last song on Vinyl :slight_smile: i like the sound of it and i’d like to get more tapes for my collection as well, modern tapes are nice.

I learned keyboarding on a typewriter in the 12th grade. 1976-77.


It is too much work, that’s why most stations are moving to remote voice tracking. Everything is pre-leveled on the server. You record and drop in your liners, hit save, and they go back up to the automation server properly spaced between your songs you’ve selected.

is that the way you do it now?

Yes. Set up for it some years back.

I can do it remotely, even through a Web interface now.

Looks too technical for me and expensive, i sent a message to my station asking if they have any alternatives.
