The long-running Analog vs. Digital debate is one that may never be resolved, but the new CLASP system seeks to bring the best of both worlds together in perfect recording harmony, according to inventor Chris Estes from Endless Analog, who reckons it's the world's first truly hybrid analog/digital recording system.

He's gathered some big-name devotees to the CLASP cause too, so what's it all about?

In a nutshell, the system allows you to use a tape machine as the primary recording medium, the output of which is recorded into your DAW of choice, which together with some nifty routing and time-stamp re-mapping allows you the convenience and all the benefits of digital recording, with the sonic characteristics of the tape medium.

Sounds cool, huh?

Chris explained what it's all about in a bit more depth...
