Analog Tape at Yarlung Records
Yarlung Records follow a minimalist approach when capturing music performances: from tube mics (AKG C-24, Neumann U47..) through custom tube preamps, then straight to a two-track recorder (both analog and digital machines for tape, lp and cd releases).
Tapes releases are 1/4” format, half-track and are individually duplicated from masters for each client.
Current list of albums on tapes includes:
- Janaki String Trio – Debut
- Elinor Frey & David Fung – Dialogues for ‘cello and piano
- The Art of the Violin – Petteri Iivonen
- Antonio Lysy at The Broad – Music from Argentina
