’78-’83 Mixtape

mixtape tracklist

There is something about the way recordings from this time period sound that I really like. It’s like the studio equipment had just reached a perfect balance between warmth and clarity. A lot of the productions were pretty slick, and I thought these tracks had some great pop sensibilities.

Transferred from vinyl using a Technics belt-drive turntable with a Grado Red series audiophile cartridge, harmon/kardon phono preamp, into a Tascam DR-05 digital recorder at 24-bit/44.1 KHz. Mastered in Pro Tools using Maxim with dither on, and exported to a 16-bit apple lossless file.
