[...] It wasn’t long before the possibilities of tape editing were being explored to the full. In 1948 – by which time reel-to-reels were being installed in studios around the world - the experimental European composer Pierre Schaeffer was using vari-speed machines to loop, chop and re-edit sounds taken from the everyday environment.

audio tape-editing gear


Tape Editing is the art of manipulating the sequence of sounds by "cutting", "editing" or "splicing" audiotape and putting together the pieces. This page is about this often forgotten and underrated creative use of equipment, and sheds some light on its history, and on many of the (often unsung) heroes of this art-form.

Back in the 1980's music pioneers created spectacular sound-effects by only using a reel-to-reel tape recorder and a splicing set. Digital sampler machines had already put tape-editing to the background, but for purists tape-editing was still very much alive. Nowadays most edits are made on computers using the same basic principle: copy, cut and paste. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tape_editing [May 2005]

Edits By Mr K (2003) - Danny Krivit

  • Edits By Mr K (2003) - Danny Krivit [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
    Classic club tracks galore -- all remixed by the godlike hands of the legendary Danny Krivit! Danny was part of the New York scene back in the day, and he was around in the clubs working when most of these gems first came out -- and was also forward-thinking enough to figure out the art of remixing when few others were giving it a try -- taking already-great tracks, and opening them up even more with a fantastic approach to space and rhythm! This set's a stunning collection of his best work in the remix department, and presents 10 gems from the glory days of the disco dancefloor -- all served up with a great set of notes that features photos, details on the mixes, and some very interesting reflections from Danny. An essential set -- both for the novice and the longtime collector of such rarities -- with remixes of "Catch The Rhythm" by Caress, "Where Is The Love" by Betty Wright, "Love To The World" by LTD, "You Got Me Runnin (Breakdown edit)" by Lenny Williams, "Dance To The Music (medley)" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love, "I Can't Stop Talking" by Genie Brown, "Koke" by Tribe, "Bra" by Cymande, "Ask Me (re worked)" by Ecstasy Passion & Pain, and "No One Gets The Prise (re-edited Jimmy Simpson rmx)" by Diana Ross.--dustygroove.com

    Greg Wilson's first CD, released by the Tirk label. Behind Tirk are the original people of former Nuphonic.

    Greg Wilson was responsible for championing black dance music, and in particular electro, at Manchester's legendary Hacienda club back in the summer of 1983. His pioneering work on just a Revox tape deck and two Technics turntables, crafting mixes and one off DJ re-edits for radio, virtually wrote the rulebook for UK DJs, remixers and dance producers. This is his first CD, a career defining anthology, ''Credit To The Edit''.
