USB/Magnetic Tape Cassette Hybrid

This hybrid music recording format was designed and built for a 2-song release from my former band Micro Mtns titled The Final World And Over Again. The format has dual function as both a USB flash storage drive and a traditional cassette tape. The release is short enough in duration that it does not require much magnetic tape, which frees up enough room inside the cassette to install a USB flash drive and connector.


This piece of music was produced using a series of custom plugins build in the Max visual programming environment. The approach was to take metadata from an audio track that is acoustic in origin and use that to manipulate the sound further into the digital realm.

The Final World And Over Again

This was written, produced, and engineered as I was developing my current approach.
