Music Hasn’t Killed The Compact Cassette

  1. As you know, I was a HUGE cassette fan from the early-‘80s through the early-00s.
    Have a tub containing hundreds of mix tapes, DJ mixes, band demos and album dubs — documenting my musical journey from junior high through my early-30s — that I’ve been transferring to digital.

    I loved the cassette as a recording format, and not because of the lo-fi factor (hiss and wow/flutter). That actually never made sense to me because a type II cassette with proper recording levels and noise reduction — Dolby C was my long-time favorite — rivaled CDs in sound quality (dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio).

    Considering the format was originally developed for dictation, they truly pushed its capabilities.

Howdy. I'm Michael Donaldson.

I'm a consultant for the music industry, working with emerging artists and labels. I also manage a label of my own, named 8D Industries, and publish + license music under 8DSync. Sometimes I'm a Q-Burns Abstract Message. But mostly I'm just trying to keep these damn cats out of my office.

I like to send postcards to my friends, and if you'd like I'll send one to you.

Oh, and here's what I'm working on now.
