This is the video that started it all. This is the 1st video I uploaded to the channel. To this day, it remains as one of the most popular. Its a good example of creating something you want to see in the world; I had always wished thered been something like this when I started recording on my 4-track.
One of the videos that was most requested in the early days on the channel was one on ping pong recording or bouncing. Its a way to give yourself an infinite amount of tracks on your 4-track (but quality does get diminished with each successive bounce). I have a lot of fun making these tutorials... this is one of my favorites!
I picked up an RC-30P just to make this video because I noticed a lack of videos on punching with a 4-track. Im not really a big fan of punching (I like to nail a take without much fanfare in post) but it is an option if you need to redo a specific spot on your recording or add a new part where there is silence on a track. Its a fun accessory and I throw in some thoughts on the process.
Unfortunately, Tascam 4-tracks are known for their quirks. Luckily, I have a great tech in my area, Jay Andersen of Operation: Audio and Bohemesphere Studio, aka, the Wizard. I thought itd be fun to take a field trip to Jays and have him guest star in a video while fixing my 4-track. Jays been an integral part of all things 424 Recording ever since!
