Mixtape: A Midnight Bolt Of Electricity

mixtape a midnight bolt of electricity

Continuing to redub my mixtape collection, today I chose one of my favourite mixes - “A Midnight Bolt of Electricity” - for times when you just need some banging tunes.

This is the first cassette that I used the calibration feature to set the bias and recording level. I also checked the left/right balance by using a signal generator app to make sure that both channels were equal. The end result is that this is the best sounding cassette I have recorded to date. I should also point out that I am using Type I cassettes - which are the least expensive and have the most noise. I also happen to have a whole heap of them.

The tracks for this mixtape have changed - I must have recorded a different track on side B because when my playlist finished I still had nearly 3 minutes of tape left. So I added SALES - Chinese New Year because it’s a great song and the perfect length.
