In stark contrast to Steve Lawson’s blog post “What is this, how you say, ‘Kassett’??” where he wrote:
“What is it? Is this some new technology I’ve not seen before? A small plastic box, with a long ribbon inside wound round two spools.
Ooh, I remember – cassette tape! Blimey.”
I’d love this piece of hardware; it’s the ultimate in retro nerdiness. (And just ignore anything to the contrary that Mr Lawson may post in the comments below!)
It’s the PlusDeck 2, a cassette deck for your PC! It’s not that I think audio cassettes are superior to MP3 or CD audio (I don’t). It’s just that I’ve got over 800 cassettes and some way of transferring them easily to MP3 would be welcomed at Potting Shed Towers.
And it does look pretty cool. (Quiet now, Steven! And go back to your digital looping boxes!)
