files
We start with music you already own. Any .mp3 or .wav file (more formats to come soon) can be uploaded to us and recorded onto your mix tape. Because you already own this music, we can make a non-commercial backup of it for your personal use. And you are free to share it with a friend.
tape
We use a high-quality, modern audio cassette as the recording medium.
tandberg
We record your music onto the beautiful little cassette using a lovingly maintained 1975 Tandberg TCD 310 Mark II tape deck via a high-quality digital audio converter (DAC) from a well-tuned Linux workstation.
shipping
We then send your custom tape off into the world to wend its way towards its new home.

And what arrives is a delightfully packaged bundle of analog goodness ready to brighten the eyes and ears of its recipient. All MyxTapes come in clear shell cases wrapped in custom-made paper sleeves and recorded on cassette tapes made entirely in the USA.

The service costs a flat $15.00 ($12.50 while we are in Alpha testing mode). This fee includes the audio cassette, the recording process (which happens in real-time), the hand-typed cassette labels and fold-out insert (J-card) and shipping.
