guess which person on tumblr that you follow is buying (maybe sort of irresponsibly, but it’s a good deal and it is the most serendipitously timed thing that has happened to me in a very long time) a tascam 414 mkii, two microphones with clips and cables, and five tapes from a guy sometime this week?
the fellow lives in the town where my dad is going to do an install either on thursday or friday. he listed it last night and barring any sort of weird mumbo jumbo, it’s going to be mine.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS???
i won’t have to sit in front of the computer to record. if i’m recording in another room, i won’t have to bring my computer with me. i’ll be able to record in bed, in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the basement, at work, anywhere. so long as there is an outlet (i don’t think the 414 can be battery operated), and that is many places.
the microphones are a radioshack brand, but have good reviews on the tape op boards, especially for female vocals and acoustic instruments, and hello, have we met?
I AM SO EXCITED! i kind of just want to drive down tomorrow after work to get it to get it but also i don’t really want to drive down to get it (it’ll be a three and a half hour round trip journey, and i don’t really have anything else to do in that area, and i’m not even sure what there is to do), so i’m hoping my dad will be willing to pick it up while he’s there, but if not, it’ll be a nice weekend trip. oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh.
