Lately I’ve been craving for more natural or real-world production methods in my music. What I mean by that is something like physical production. Plate or spring reverbs are one example: letting phenomena of the physical world influence recordings and tracks.
Since a few months ago I enjoy recording instruments directly to tape. Especially drums. I mix them down with a simple mixer and then go back and forth between playing and listening until I like the settings and then record a “tape” of about 20-30 minutes.
