that is why I said its a matter of perspective , and learning to do this manually gives the insight to recreate this digitally , that is what is missing with todays engineering skills. BTW not all of this was LoFi in one case i was using studer machines and some of this would be difficult to reproduce digitally .it just worked very well in the tape realm@24 track ...
All that is super cool and it's probably quicker out of the gate to get the lo-fi and freaky vibe/tone via tape, but you can "do" all that with software and a DAW and of course some creative thinking. But it probably would take longer and not be as fun.
An analog to that (pun intended) would be that sure, I can play 15 solos and edit the good parts together ITB, but it's just faster for me to work on playing a 'good one' and then nail it in one (or two) takes.
I get where you're coming from. You're obviously passionate about the gestalt of the whole process. I say "bravo to you sir!"
some thing I will add to the digital side of this perspective is the use of melodyne a fantastic program that allows you to record say a guitar audio track turn it into a midi track edit the midi track and then control a synth or other instrument using the same phrasing as the guitar , excellant bit of digital engineering , this also works for vocals , possibilities are endless if you just think about the end results you need, and not be limited by tour own imagination.
