Our Thai dealer Wuti Larnwoongroj of Audio Excellence, Bangkok is also one of the largest retailers of legal, royalty-paid Reel-to-Reel tape titles in the world through his store Image Music & Film Co. also in Bangkok. That may be why Groove Note has decided to have the world premier launch of two tape titles: GRV1088 Vanessa Fernandez When the Levee Breaks and GRV1099 Jacintha Fire & Rain on June 30th. Our CEO Gary Leonard Koh will be there for the relaunch of the Genesis Forte with the new Genesis designed ribbon mid-range at the same time.
Groove Note owner Ying Tan will be on hand to demo the tapes, and also do some A/B comparisons with the 45rpm vinyl, as well as to play a 30ips master of the new as-yet-unmastered Vanessa album. With over 30 years experience in music production (Classic Records, Groove Note and ORG), he will talk about the differences between Pro and Consumer machines, and the big difference between tapes produced by the serious mastering places and those that are generally available on the Internet.
If you are in Bangkok, this is a must-not-miss event to hear the best that tape can do.
