Welcome to issue #16 of Tape Op.
Hey, welcome to Tape Op #16.
Four years ago I was folding and stapling a few pages of Xeroxed paper together in hopes that I could create a forum for others (and myself) to learn about recording. I wanted to show that good records resulted from creativity, knowledge, drive, expression and ambition, and that having the newest, most expensive recording tools wasn't neccesarily the answer. I felt like I was a minority in the recording world.
In this issue we scored an excellent interview with Tchad Blake, who turns out to be a fan of our magazine. I can't tell you how amazed I am at the kind of respect that we are getting from Tchad and other engineers, producers and musicians. I still feel like we're fighting a battle, but lately I feel like there's a lot of great people on our side. Thanks!
