Today I wake up with a notification about a great new video from Techmoan. This time is more an educational video, and it talks about how prerecorded cassettes were made in the 90s using new digital duplication bins.

An Otari digital duplication bin, one of the commonly used machines to duplicate cassettes in the 90s.

In those years majority of people gradually lost interest on cassettes, in favour of the new CDs, so global sellings were going down. And so the big music labels were putting interest in finding a way to push them up again. So new systems to duplicate cassettes with more quality were released, like the DIGalog.

I have never seen such DIGalog prerecorded cassettes in my country (Spain) because I think the market here was of low quality and big labels didn’t care about the quality of the tapes we listened to. They simple passed on and let the prerecorded cassette be as bad as it was. Reason why I always thought the prerecorded cassettes weren’t worth so much.

But, as I talked about in the post, I was wrong…
