15.jpg (me and Elliott rolling in Jackpot!'s original MCI JH-16, Feb. 1997) As most readers of Tape Op may have picked up on by now, I have been involved in the archiving and cataloging of the music of my late friend, Elliott Smith. Here's an interview I just did about this if you are curious. I also was interviewed for one of those little 33 1/3 books about Elliott's XO album. I was allowed to fact check and contribute to this book and I feel it's one of the better things to come out about my friend. Buy it here. Author Matt LeMay will also be doing a book tour for this. See him in Portland at Reading Frenzy on May 21st, 7PM.

 

Tape Op is a free magazine exclusively devoted to
the art of record making.

Our pal, Marc Bianchi of Her Space Holiday is guest editing Magnet Magazine this week. He has some nice things to say about Tape Op, and as one of our original readers we thank him for the log time support and writing about us. Plus adding the video...

Your magazine was not the first place I'd seen Count's "I Have a Credit Problem" essay [Tape Op #89], but I feel compelled to respond. I agree with his general ideas - credits should be shown, and the current "album experience" in the digital...

When we ran a page featuring senior contributor Garrett Haines' "Building Troubleshooting Skills" in Tape Op #84 I never expected to get the kind of replies we did below. The Letters section for upcoming issues was too full, so I'm posting these...

In issue 32 we had a short review of Linda Smith's current CD. Even though we meant to get an interview with Linda in the mag at some point, for some reason it never quite happened. Jump to 2011 and Linda has assembled a site full of MP3's of her...

I'm about to write something that at first will seem like another gray-beard waxing nostalgic for a by-gone analog era. But, stick with me, because I think the tables are turning to where going analog might be as forward-thinking as it gets. Let's...

I was amazed today to be informed that phonograph cylinders are still being manufactured. Madame Pamita dropped us a line a while back and surprised us with some cool music recorded on Cylinders by Peter Dilg, of the Edison Historical Site, and it...

I'm in the middle of cataloging 1.5 TB of audio files. This is the work I do for the Estate of Elliott Smith. Two computers keep Pro Tools on the top one and FileMaker Pro and Excel for track sheets on the bottom one. Otherwise the MacBook Pro...
