There is a new guitar pedal that will allow your guitar to sound like a VCR (as well as a variety of other ’90s related technology).
This new guitar pedal is called The Generation Loss MKII, and as reported by Guitar World, this pedal includes a Model dial that has 10 different models, including: VCR, cassette, camcorder and even toy cassette. These models are based on some frequency analysis and deconstruction of hardware.
Per the pedal’s description on the Chase Bliss website:
“Generation Loss MKII is a study of tape in all its forms.
“We decided to start from scratch this time and really explore what tape is all about. Get into those crinkles that make it so magical. We took apart VCRs, we analyzed anything we could find with a tape in it, from camcorders to cassette decks.
“All available for you to saturate, fail and flutter, until everything sits just right. And if you prefer the way it was before, you can do that too. In stereo.”
You can check out a commercial trailer for The Generation Loss MKII below:

When it comes to other technology and the world of music, did you hear how music is being stored on special glass and placed in a doomsday vault? In Svalbard, Norway you will find both the Global Seed Vault, as well as the Global Music Vault (both serving as a doomsday vault of sorts); inside the latter, loads of music is being preserved on glass (this is part of a collaborative effort between Elire Group and Microsoft).
