Analogue and digital (slight return)

Tape is a more natural way to record than digital technology. Yes, if you think that suspending a zillion little magnetic rust particles in plastic and then telling them how to line up as they get dragged past an electromagnet, which has to be fed by a high-level supersonic signal just so the audio doesnÂ’t sound like a buzzsaw, is totally natural.

But does anybody really use the “natural” argument?
