different guy, but a good proof of concept



you'll notice that he has to press the 'pause' button whenever he scratches.

Takes three to make one. Good for 12+/- seconds.

wait, so do you glue the top three smaller wheels in there? will the tape continue moving if they dont spin?

Yes. Tension is a bit important so getting the proper length for the loop shell you are making is something to consider. A lot of slop leads to problems FOR ME. Just remember that the pinch roller of whatever deck you are using is pulling the tape along. I've seen loop shells made loaded like the tape area on Roland Space echos with a bunch of tape. Haven't tried it myself.

PROPER splicing tape is crucial for long term loop stability but if you aren't so concernered scotch tape will work.


A purpose made slicing block is an added bonus.

It certainly takes a lot of patience, all I'll say.

the simple chandler loop has worked for me:

Here's a nice article which includes that, and a few other designs:

more n00b inquiries: how do tape splicers work exactly? are the vintage ones I've seen on ebay worth it? the hardest part I've had is getting the tape to not get stuck where both sides are tapes together.
I have one small loop that works most of the time but occasionally gets stuck, and the other I have not been able to improve on because of where the piece attaches. I understand everything I've heard about patience and steady hands now. I can really only commit a couple hours a week to this now as its maddening nuts :mad:

Most tape splicers just amount to a jig that will hold the tape in an accurate alignment for cutting and taping (still done by hand). They will typically have one or more angled guides to allow repeatable cuts, the more acute the angle the more gradual the fade in.

Like most jigs, when used properly it's worth a dozen hands.

A good splice is a butt joint, not an overlap.

Use proper splicing tape or open the gates of suffering.
