Reel ninjas

Use magnetic tape, my ninjas. Please. For years, the most respected ninja-audio scientists have known that analog and digital recording offer two distinct sonic possibilities. Analog recievers/recorders tend to use tubes to amplify the signal, and magnetic tape to record that signal. This process, as I will tell you, disregards the odd-numbered harmonics in a given sound, leaving the signal with a warmer, richer tone (for examples, see the latest posts on my music sites, or, compare early Bob Marley to his later stuff). Digital recording, in comparison, either includes odd numbered harmonics, or excludes even numbered ones. And for any of my ninjas hopelessly confused: all sounds are conglomerations of smaller sounds called harmonics. The almagamation of these harmonics become the sounds that we all know and recognize. It is the sworn duty of anyone bearing the title of R0b0t Ninja to honor and refine these sound wave harmonics to the macro-evolutionary apex at which we find ourselves. Which led me to purchase this little number on the ebay.

It’s amazing. I love it so much, as does black jesus–feel free to witness it’s sonic warmening on the R0b0tninja, as well as the R0b0tr0n/dub R0b0t interwebs. It is called an Akai M-8, 1/4 inch reel to reel tape recorder, with bloody, wonderful orange tubes glowing inside it. Ancient, high ninja-technology represent.
