Re: vst questions

The kick is a standard TR 909, there's some Lo Pass filtering on it which is why the transient doesn't have too much hi freq content. The bassline sounds like low filtered saw waves to me but I'm a bit high and drunk right now so, I dunno. There's lots of ways to separate kick n bass

Re: some feedback would be appreciated

I think you're in the wrong place to seek feedback but I'll chip in. The track you posted sounds great, it sounds lovely on my system, but it nothing happens in the music. The whole track is the same as it starts. It sounds really good but you never go anywhere with it, it just repeats. Potential un...

Re: Recording to Tape ( cassette, worth the hassle? )

My personal tries with tapes were not successful, the result was not worth the hassle, and although the signal was compressed, there was a lack on certain frequencies. I got much better results with saturation plugins (e.g. the one in Ableton) and loading samples into devices that have a typical 12...

Re: Recording to Tape ( cassette, worth the hassle? )

No, I'm at the thinking about stage at the moment. I watched a production video on legowelt a while back and he did exactly this and I since discovered that others have used them.
