Hello engineers and producers! We are gonna sell this sweet Otari MX-70 1" machine that we've had here since early 2015. There's been some awesome albums and singles recorded by Spencer Garn on this sucker with many local Atlanta artists that have recorded here, and some are lined up for release yet in 2018 that aren't completed yet! A few other local engineers have also used it and after it was purchased in SC in late 2014, it's now made a home here in ATL. We would like to talk to you about keeping it going here in Atlanta at your studio! Please let us know if you are interested. This is a great machine on a budget for someone's first or just an upgrade! Talk to ya soon!

Going Strong! #otarimx70 #nocomputers @diamondstreetstudios

Digging around old files and remembering this session!
Our good friend and engineer, Morgan Garcia, worked on the newest De La Soul album "and the Anonymous Nobody." He also mixed many of the tracks and brought them over to record some drums to our tape machine for that analog sound! They also recorded some bass and keys that day as well. The song they were working on is "Memory Of," which features Estelle & Pete Rock! @morgangarciamix #atlmusic #atlantasoul #analogrecord #instagood #delasoul
