Boston's New Album Could Have Taken A Lot Longer

11/08/2013
.
(Classic Rock) Tom Scholz knows Boston fans waited a long time for his sixth album but he says the wait would have been much longer if he'd been forced to abandon his beloved analogue recording gear.

Life, Love & Hope will be released on December 3, following Corporate America, which came out in 2002. But in a rare interview with MusicRadar, Scholz says: "I can do things so much faster in an analogue format, The right frequency, the right amount of level change, tone change, delay time; whatever you want to do, I can find it so much faster with my ear.

"Doing this in digital, it wouldn't have been a 10-year project it would have been a lifetime project." Speed isn't the only reason he remains passionate about using magnetic tapes, from two-inch studio reels to cassettes for rough recordings. "Analogue gear is very responsive," he says. "You don't to look at any numbers; you don't have to input any data.

"Your fingers and in my case, my feet, because I actually run the tape deck with my feet when I'm recording my hands are busy, so I actually run the tape deck with one foot or another. It's so intuitive with analogue, where you just move something and the sound changes." more on this story
