MOD to Audio Tape!
 
After watching Techmoans excellent You Tube Video 'Casettes - Better Than You Don't Remember', I felt inspired to 'mess around' with audio tapes again. Having picked up a decent second hi-fi (Denon 201sa) from a local charity shop, before prices got silly for old hi-fi equipment, I plugged in the audio output of my A1200 straight into the Denon and recorded a TDK D90's worth of Amiga Mods. Playback from tape is awesome!!! I plan to do more 'mixtapes' just to chuck on the stereo when I fancy.

I used to do that in the 90s, also I was the only one who listened to the computer music at my school.
Good times...

Awesome! I still have a Hifi Deck (Pioneer IIRC) in the basement. How about Demoparties like Revision should accept the "Streaming Audio" entries as mp3 OR tape?! :D :lol

I used to do this back in the day, late 1990 to early 2000's.

I hooked the A1200 up to a Sony old-school tape deck and amp.
Did this mainly so I could have the tapes in the Car.

The changed over to audio cd's. Tape sounds better imho, if you get it all setup right its brilliant :)

You're mad if you think tape sound better than CD's. It can come close if you've got a high end deck like a Nakamichi, but a Sony tape deck is going to produce nothing but poor quality recordings.

I picked up a Marantz PMD520 back when the unit was 300 dollars (the price peaked at almost 1000 not too long ago). The recordings on that deck are absolutely amazing and I can record at 1 7/8 ips and 3 3/4 ips on that deck (and play back at those speeds too). I made a composite output mod on my Commodore 64 and ill be moving my Amiga 1200 into my new house next month. I may record some mods and sids onto cassette as well in the near future :)
