In his latest video, Hainbach demonstrates how he uses a vintage Nagra tape recorder for analog tape processing.
Hainbach uses audio tape processing to remove some of the ‘sheen’ of his source material, and to add analog artifacts that recall the past.
“Here I am making a track composed on the OP1 sound richer using a Kudelski Nagra III,” he explains. The final result is featured in the second half of the video.
