Using a cassette player for samples — How very retro!

At a recent flea market I found this wonderful cassette recorder. It was originally used for language courses, so that’s why it has some non-standard switches on the front. I, however, use it like a normal cassette player, to give the samples a nice bit of warble and saturation.

In the short video above, you see the cassette recorder in the process of recording a sample loop from my SP404 SX sampler.
