The concept of this was to make songs that were entirely free of the computer (from making sounds all the way to the final mix). This started a new way of working for me that captured a bit more freedom and allowed me to focus on arrangement more with my ears than my eyes.
I purchased a small eurorack modular synthesizer with analog step sequencer in it. This system worked well with my TR-808 and other older synths, then every synths was routed to my mixing console and then finnaly recorded to cassette tape.
I picked tape for the added sound of the tape compression and the added extra noise seemed to gel nicely with the compositions.
