Despite 20+ years of digital recording advancements, recording to analog tape remains a hot topic in the world of audio engineering. Software modeling companies work hard to create the best emulations while hardware manufacturers pour over designs to also emulate the "magic" of the tape process, and yet "the real thing" remains a no-option for many artists and engineers still today. This workshop will discuss the current state of analog tape manufacturing, availability, and its usage in the recording, mixing, and mastering stages of the music production cycle.

AES Members can watch a video of this session for free.
