Tascam 38 Returns

After a long period of inactivity, our Tascam 38 was in need of repair.  The capstan belt had disintegrated and the tensioner arms were stuck.  As luck would have it, our friend Matt "Tapes" Steck knew of someone locally in Pottstown, PA who could do the work.

A few weeks and $140 later, Frank Scarano resurrected our Tascam 38.  Now it's time to get some new reels of tape and do some analog recording!

Super Mega Death Ray

Floating Fish Studios held Synth Jam 2016 - Wheels of Steel at FFS II on 02/27/16. The ensemble gathered included Steve Saputelli (aka Steve O Man), Paul Polidoro (aka Paul Doppelganga), M Scott McConnell (aka MC2P4), and Matt Norcross (aka Ttam Troll).

Paul Polidoro on the “Wheels of Steel” shows off his turntable prowess during this improv while Steve O Man leads the rhythmic charge on electronic drums. Ttam Troll pulsates a Minimoog synth bass line as MC2P4 layers samples and synths on top it all.

This live improv is noisy and fun and is titled, Super Mega Death Ray.
