In April of 2018, Jay and I successfully funded a Kickstarter to produce a preamp designed to emulate the gritty, lo-fi nature of overdriven 4-track cassette recorder preamps: the TascFamp. With an XLR and 1/4" in, I use mine almost everyday I'm recording.
If there's enough interest, we'll do a 2nd run. Sign up for the waitlist here: https://mailchi.mp/494e8a1177c7/424tascfampwaitlist
Here's a link to the Kickstarter page and the sounds.
