Tapes on a plane (Part 2 – The Tech)

A look at an aircraft BGM and announcement player and explanation on how I retrieved the audio from the tape carts. Pt.1 - (feat. the audio) is here: https://youtu.be/nCTF2edNDWQ

If you’d prefer to watch both parts 1 & 2 together in one video with a more traditional linear narrative - you can. Here’s the link: https://youtu.be/MU02pQe3E5Q
This has been put as an unlisted video as inserting yet another version of the video into the subscriber feed or timeline on the channel would cause confusion. The original two videos were  made a week apart from each other but released on the same day. I thought people would like to see both parts together rather than waiting a few days - however it turns out that releasing them on the same day has caused a lot of upset and distress. 

If you’re interested in a quick look behind the scenes of the creation of the amazingly realistic special effects then there’s a short section about this in the August 2020 Patreon supporters update video, over on, you guessed it, Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/techmoan 

Q) Can I upload a full copy of the background music audio somewhere?
A) Sorry but no. Someone somewhere commissioned it, someone recorded it and probably someone else owns the rights to it. None of those someone’s are me unfortunately. It’s just not mine to distribute. 

Since making the video I've re-captured the audio from the BGM tape. It seems it contained two stereo programs on a 4 track tape. Adding both together creates a single track that plays for around 45 minutes (there would originally have been about two minutes more including the chewed up section).
