the other night i made this cassette tape loop. i had made several of david chandler‘s cassette loops in the past but i had really been wanting something longer. after much trial and error i came up with this design in an attempt to use as much of the space inside the cassette that i comfortably could. it took a while to get the tape tension just right but i think i have it pretty nailed down now. in my 4-track tape deck (which at its slowest speed still plays back at a higher speed than standard tape players) i am able to get 8.5 seconds out of this loop. with a foot pedal operating the punch-in/punch-out function of the 4-track i am able to turn it into a pretty nice lo-fi looper.
i will post sound samples soon.
