Audio Out on the VCR to input of your sampler.
Just need the RCA cord to connect.

Unless you make a "pause tape" with just the VCR itself, no sampler. That would be dope!

It was a loooong time ago, but someone here mentioned using their VCR to record their tracks onto it. They mentioned it gave it a good sound with some compression. You could probably even record the video from what source you want, but just record the audio of your tracks.

Plus, you got like 6 hours of recording time, rather than 60 mins.

I've mentioned recording to VHS but not sure if that was on here or another forum but people often don't realise that a 4 head VHS Hi Fi video recorder can actually record and play back near CD quality audio. 

I've used a VHS hi-fi deck as a mixdown deck for music projects in the past with some dope results. 

Well over 90db dynamic range and a 20-20K frequency response. 

The audio head spins against the tape offering a comparable tape/head speed of 80 ips. Most two track mastering reel to reel decks were 15 or 30 ips.

It's tape speed.

Inches Per Second (abbreviated to ips)
