  1. I was once the very proud owner of a PortaStudio that looked close to this .. (though I’m pretty sure it was an earlier model – I remember the color being a dark gray) It would have been somewhere in the late 80’s!!! Only to have my apartment broken into… Loved that thing to pieces! They didn’t take my DX7 only because they couldn’t fit it through the window!

  2. Man we did that shit back in the 90s that is not nothing new. We use to splice cassette tapes which i still have till this day..

  3. What’s the history of this style of recording , who invented it and where did it come from ? Sounds great .
    Has to be more to it than boc .
