In Acid WAV, AIFF and Rex 2 format, ‘Lost Tapes’ was recorded in a unique environment. The tracks were played on a wide range of sixties instruments from legendary manufacturers such as Burns, Baldwin and Dan Electro into vintage Selmer and Vox amplification.
Premier and Ludwig kits also from that decade were recorded using a selection of rare ribbon mics. Old tone wheel Hammond B3 and A100 organs further evoke the past. All tracks were recorded onto an old Studer 1” tape machine via an EMI Redd desk which once resided in the famous Decca Studios.
The result is a refreshing, genuinely authentic collection of old skool tracks that evoke a bygone era and genuinely captures the spirit of the age. These wonderful loops will enable writers and producers to sculpt some classic tunes, so enjoy!
