Who here still own cassettes and listen to them regularly? I had some when I was younger but obviously as technology got better and as my dad got computers and the alike, I stopped using cassettes. I recently reacquired two cassette decks (one which needs some replacing but otherwise good condition). I also found some sealed and packaged blank tapes from back then. I've been recording some albums on them, curious to see how they sound. Whoever said that cassettes are terrible has obviously never had good ones. While obviously FLAC is hard to beat, these cassettes sound pretty good and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two unless I had them side by side. I've watched some videos, and one thing it has made me learn is to appreciate the amount of work that was done with these older media formats. I'm now doing some research on the best way to setup a hifi sound system for my room. What are your stories about cassettes? Were you ever in them? Do you miss them? Did you ever like them? Really interested to read stuff from the older guys.
Man, it feels like I haven't been on here for such a long time. Anyhows, I've been listening to some Jazzy stuff and also to some stuff from the 80's. I've got to say, there's a lot of good sounding music. What I am asking is if anyone else has found songs, artists, and/or albums that feature a space like ambiance along with some nice sounding saxophone melodies/leads. This track for example has been one of my favorites. I prefer tracks without any vocals and mainly instrumentals. Also, would be awesome if any folks can recommend tracks that are similar to these two tracks: What I enjoy with these two tracks is all the 80's elements, from the synths, bass, and the great saxophone portions. If there are any songs/albums that are focused on these specific elements (again, with no vocals), be free to post them!
