Coco tip. Reamping with a mini cassette recorder

Author Coco tip. Reamping with a mini cassette recorder
Mashmore
Just thought I share some more coco wow. Using a little handheld recorder to record output from monitors and then feed back into coco. Walls of sound. That is all

would love to hear some recordings when you get them!

I have an idea of what you are doing but not sure if my tape recorder can take the signal and record and play it back simutaneously to feed into the coco. Am I misreading what you are saying?
seriously, i just don't get it

EDIT- hilarious question due to my tape recorder having a bum headphone jack lol Carry on help

ah bummer on the headphone jack! You could use a smartphone. I ripped the cover off my recoder. Now I can touch the spindles to get some added warble and noise.

You are close.

1. Make loop on coco
2. Record via crappy mic on handheld recorder/ (or smartphone or whatever)
get crazy with your mic positioning. It will crunch swimmingly.
3 Rewind
4. plug stereo output/Headphone jack of recorder into coco.
5 Press play.( I find best results when I slowly bring up the volume on the recorder.
6. Repeat

Used the mini cassette recorder some in this track. The first time was around 3-4 mins in. Then use it off and on throughout grabbing snippits and layering.

That is really fine.

I'd shake your hand...

and then pick your brain.

Patching notes would be much appreciated.

I'm a new owner of a DearCocoDeer - moments of magic and madness and I've still a long way to go.

Thank you for sharing the track.

I picked up a fairly long tape loop (originally it was for an answering machine) this sounds like fun

just bought one of these as I was playing around with the 20 second one this morning and it will open up a lot of new options applause

there is one 20 second one on ebay now but the cost is high

@Mrcharles Many thanks for the kind feedback.

Patch notes/tips for magic. Ok here is something to explore.

Try Me:

+coco speeds to 11 o'clock each(the longer the buffer the more crunch and bit reduction the coco applies.) 8-11oclock seems to be a sweet spot for my device) 11 is just a touch crunchy and very pleasing for me.

+Master volume to taste. (Noon to 1 o'clock is always nice and flat for me.)
Delay volume 9-11o'clock

+Sound source (crucial imo for this example): Try feeding the coco a low to mid range string,pad or guitar. Slow pretty attack and nice release times.

+Plug a gray to both flips or plug 2 different grays into each of the flips.(flips are subtle and classy IMO)

+The grays you plugged into the flips... start with the switch pointed to center(Lfo Mode) I find while tweaking speed and chaos knobs when center facing or (down) castles play very nicely.

+Experiment with how each of the 5 switch settings effects your loop/buffer.

+Don't forget to lock the buffers from time to time when you catch something you like.

As far as the deerhorn goes.. I don't own one but i would try plugging it to flips also. and maybe patch the deer horn to some cercles for matrix variation.

Hope some of that made sense. seriously, i just don't get it nanners Best wishes and hope this helps find some magic

Cheers Guinness ftw!

In the example above use a gray from the middle quantussy section not a gray from the top of the coco delays. Although those grays into flip or skip make for wild hell sounds

direct feedback and ciat lonbarde instruments play so nicely together

I have the tape play running from tape outs on my mixer and the headphone jack goes back into the coco so I can record onto endless tape for playback and also use the headphone volume knob for creating feedback

I also got a couple of the stereo splitter (two stereo output channels from 1 input) cables that make for nice feedback fodder

I'll upload the tape unfortunately my portable tape player doesn't like the endless tapes so I have to move a computer to make it happen

mashmore....

Thank you for your generous patch notes.

I'm sure I'm not the first to learn from them.

just a snippet from that endless tape
I think I can get a better recording from the tape player but this was super quick into the input on the laptop

I can't believe the wailing that comes from this simple feedback patch
Modulus
Awesome sounds guys. Love this idea. have u guys checked out this new tape echo machine? http://spacecasetapeecho.com

Really looking forward to adding the coco to the feedback loop on this and vice versa. It also has a microphone that u could use for reamping
