Rec72 (Label) says:

Tape players were used extensively in the recording of this album.

Please describe the production process of ‘Tape productions’ in just some sentences.

I usually work exclusively with Ableton Live but this time I decided to try & record using tape alongside my computer (like when I used to work with a 4 track Tascam recorder). I still recorded into a computer but I also re-recorded every instrument stem out to an old cassette tape then recorded back to the computer again. Then as you say, I bounced out the mastered version to the same C90 tape. Then of course back to the computer once more for creating the mp3′s. It was a long process but also very rewarding (Also, I love the sound of tape hiss).
