these are great! You really got them sounding like old recordings, what hardware/software did you use?

Hi Brian-

Thanks for your comments.

I wish I could say there was a "magic box" or plugin to get that old sound... if so, I'd like to have it!

The process was really just:
1) starting out with a nice clean recording (I wasn't trying to make something muddy sound muddier)
2) EQ'ing some of the prominent individual tracks (especially piano), taking out the highs and lows (before mixdown)
3) I made everything mono
4) EQ'ing fully mixed track to "master", taking out the more highs and lows

I didn't try a tape saturation plugin, but I'd like to in the future, in addition to EQ'ing.
