Just a nice relaxing video of the setup and playback of an Akai GX-630D, showcasing the brilliant orchestral piece J'ai Fait Une Promesse by Anathema. Truly brilliant and musical playback from such a vintage machine, hope you guys enjoy!
Recorded to new RMGI SM911 tape @ 7 1/2 IPS. Maybe a tad on the hot side as far as levels go, still getting used to working with this machine and tape combination!
Source was a FLAC CD Rip, fed via Sapphire Pro 40 to GX-630D, direct line feed back to Pro-40 and re-encoded to FLAC.
Video shot using a Nikon D3200 with 50mm Prime Lens @ F2.2
Note: I did not create the music showcased here, I am merely a huge fan of Anathema, and haven't seen any of their stuff showcased on tape, it is not my intention to impede on copyrights, just to spread some fan love in (hopefully) a way not too many have had the chance to hear.
