I never had the privilege of cutting tape and splicing tape.
However, the studio I work at owns a couple great tape machines.
What sound effects do you think would sound great on tape?
I know Horns and Brass record great on tape,
therefore, would cymbals being bowed and dry ice on metal sound good?
How about gunshots? I'm sure they'd sound great,
Basically, my guess is anything with high transients in it will sound good and softened by recording it to tape.
Has anyone tried anything of the like?
I'm wary of wasting a bunch of tape with my sound effect experiments and tape isn't cheap now-a-days, so if anyone has already tried this sort of thing and found something doesn't sound good let me know.
