This song was composed on the OP-Z, and recorded it to tape using a 4-track recorder. Two of the tracks where for the OP-Z, and a third one was used to record a tape echo, using a Marantz PMD222 portable recorder. I was planning to use a synth for bass on the 4th track, but it didn't fit well with the song.
I love mixing new gear (the OP-Z) with vintage gear (the cassette tapes). Working with the cassettes has a nostalgic appeal to me, and the OP-Z is quickly becoming my favorite instrument.
