Here's an old video that I wanted to transfer over to BitChute from YouTube. It's a short clip of a DIY cassette loop with a sample of an old Soft Cell song on it. I always thought the line "Pizzas scream like open sores!" was really funny, so it seemed like a natural choice to use it for a cassette loop.
I figure this is relevant to the sort of content I post here. Truth be told though, the main reason I'm re-posting it is because it has my now-deceased cat Niji in it. I didn't want to scrub that from YT without putting it up somewhere else first.
Highlights of my cassette deck collection. A higher resolution version of this video, along with the full, extensive archive of ThriftyAV is available on LBRY.
In this video, I analyze features on three cassette recorders., an Optimus CTR-111 Cassette Recorder, a JVC TD-W215, and a Nakamichi BX-100. I explore the input and output jacks, types of Dolby Noise Reduction, usage with microphones such as the Shure SM-58 and Gemini AS-540, and I use an audio test track to compare results of these decks when recording music.

Hi everyone more analogue tape love for you with this Marantz CP430 stereo cassette recorder. The featured cassette is by the band Blade Chain with the album called Suffer in Silence. Recorded by Chumley on a Fostex E16 and mixed by Chris Secker. Many thanks to Alan for the repair and bringing this machine back to life awesome bro
Heres some info
Marantz have just about hit the nail on the head in terms of the portable stereo recording unit. I can see the CP430 being used for journalism and audio-visual work as well as for studio and hi-fi. Its robust small size, low power consumption and wide dynamic range, make it particularly ideal for use on location and for the home studio where it could well form an integral part of a home set-up. Its high quality and versatility would render it useful from the initial, original sound gathering end of the chain, through effects to mastering.
