We start with music you already own. Any .mp3 or .wav file (more formats to come soon)
can be uploaded to us and recorded onto your mix tape. Because you already own this music, we can make
a non-commercial backup of it for your personal use. And you are free to share it with a friend.
We use a high-quality, modern audio cassette as the recording medium.
We record your music onto the beautiful little cassette using a lovingly
maintained 1975 Tandberg TCD 310 Mark II tape deck via a high-quality
digital audio converter (DAC) from a well-tuned Linux workstation.
We then send your custom tape off into the world to wend its way towards
its new home.
And what arrives is a delightfully packaged bundle of analog goodness ready
to brighten the eyes and ears of its recipient. All MyxTapes come in clear
shell cases wrapped in custom-made paper sleeves and recorded on cassette tapes
made entirely in the USA.
The service costs a flat $15.00 ($12.50 while we are in Alpha testing mode). This fee includes the audio cassette, the recording
process (which happens in real-time), the hand-typed cassette labels and fold-out insert (J-card)
