Reel To Reel Tape Delay

This user demo, via darshonaut, looks at how to use a reel to reel tape machine as a tape delay with a modular synthesizer:

I wanted to turn my Reel to Reel Tape Machine (Revox A77 MK III) into a Tape Delay, but since I don’t use a traditional mixing desk with Aux In/Out , I had to come up with a patch for my Curetronic modular synthesizer.

The Open Reel Ensemble scratches 4 reel-to-reel analog tape recorders to make some really cool music.

Very cool and an interesting reuse of classic technology.
