Breaking streaming services DRM by recording the music to cassette tapes
@saramg I did a few! Honestly, it’s a relaxing kind of project, you have to plan how many and which tracks to put on each side so they all fit the tape without leftovers, and after that you get to listen to the whole thing while it records.
@henriavo So you could record music onto it, from radio or from someone’s tape/cd, further helping the cause of killing record industry profits.
@welt it’s lots of fun! And a lot easier to operate than vinyl records. And certainly a lot cheaper too. This deck cost me €65 on eBay and has all the top features.
@brunoph I mean I dunno but can't you literally circumvent audio DRM by just plugging a loopback cable from speaker out to mic in?
I spot someone converting digital music to cassettes *and* an Ibanez SR300
Great minds think alike
@MutoShack Yep! I hope someday my skills on the latter will be good enough that I’ll have an excuse to record it in the former 😄

i need to find a working tape deck again. i think i used to have a variation of that same model.
@kheya I got this one for €65 on eBay. Works perfectly. Late 90s pioneer decks are very reliable. And even though their mechanisms aren’t the best, they still sound great.
