What do you prefere? I guess most here prefere vinyls, but second to that? I have never liked casettes, and only have a few of them in my collection. Its so easy for tapes to get worn, and the sound is shitty. IMO...

I prefer cds, but with good design and cover...
Tapes, I enjoy them from time to time, specially the ones I don´t have in cd, but I don´t buy tapes at all...
Demos on tape are cool looking, old school... that`s the only tapes I buy form time to time...

I love tapes. I prefer them over CDs, even if theyre not so durable and not comfortable.

Nothing about old school and the crap, I just like that medium more than the CD.

Tapes, hands down. CD's are good for when I listen to stuff in my car, but tapes are cheaper and take less space to store.

Someday I actually plan on starting a tape label.

I don't mind both - but tape players are beginning to be scarce… which is a pity, I find!

I prefer a CD than a MC if it's a regular album. But as mention, tapes are far far far better than CDRs. I hate CDRs so much!
I don't even bother to look into a "new" band, if the demo is CDR... If they absolutely want a cd, make a prober pressing, it's not THAT expensive...

A good factory-pressed CDR is not that bad and a pretty good option to press very few quantities, i.e.: for a demo. You can get 100 copies for less than 100 € looking 95% pro. Not every band has the money / interest to press 500/1000 copies for their demo.

well but most bands decide just to buy CDRs in a local papershop for 1,50€ / 10 copies package and burn it themselves.

Well, i guess next to vinyl, tapes are the only other analog alternative. CDs are convenient as tape players are getting scarce. However, a properly packaged tape release still looks good Very Happy
