・Having a alternative small factory by myself
Artists can choose the final output of thier release by themselfs. Then get to be able to make small lots of tapes without sending the master data to black box factory, without waiting 2weeks of shipping, without caring about english messages from the factory. It’s easy, flexible, economic, and fun.

“Analog” or “Lo” doesn’t mean “bad”, of course.
So the quality of sounds is not absolute standard but It’s relative and a dependent variable fuctor of medium that changes dynamically.
It’s like connecting tape sound effect at finalizing process. The medium has its own unique taste of sound.
