Baby Driver (2017)

See Baby Driver at IMDb

Baby (Ansel Elgort) listen to some voice he has recorded. (0:15:42)

Baby listens to the microcassette. He is thinking something. Baby now records the voice from the Olympus microcassette on a old, rare Califone Cardmaster. My friend Mat reviewed it at his Techmoan channel.

Then he starts to record on a dual deck. An old dual deck is doing a copy from a Maxell UR (type I) to another one. However, it seems to me like a glitch, because he doesn't start copying at any moment so the viewer understands that he is actually recording from the Califone, not copying a tape. Baby is playing with the voice on the Califone and recording on the deck.
Baby continues playing with the voice. Baby is playing an electronic battery. A R2R can be seen in the background. Baby plays some notes on a cassette-based keyboard.
  Baby finally listens to the mixtape he has just recorded.A deck can be seen in the background. Baby writing a J-card. It can easily be recognized as a Maxell...
He puts the tape in the same box as his others. Now here we can see his big mixtape collection. Most of them are Maxell UR (type I), but there are also some TDK D. Baby recording a conversation on microcassette.. (0:17:52)
Doc (Kevin Spacey) throws down all Baby's cassettes over a table. In the left side there is an orange case that looks as a NAC 731 cassette. (1:17:23). All the band examines Baby's cassettes. In front of Baby there's a blue case that seems a NAC cassette. They play one of his cassettes on a desktop voice Optimus recorder.

The mixtape scene.

The ghost goes down. The girl is becoming excited with the music. The ghost starts to pull down the girl's clothes...
Eddie's friend is going to put the tape into a boombox in a school party. A girl discovers that there's a R2R playing a devil's recording. It seems it's a nice Revox A77 but she beat and destroys it... :-(
