I did not play this one too much. It sure was fun tracking it. My right mic started to short out but only a few very slight times. No big deal. It was the early show so of course we get screwed on the time, hour and 10 minutes. This should be a nice listen on my server. Yours too. Enjoy RB
***Everything I do for my stereo room and gear is carefully chosen for the finest of quality control. This means A to B comparisons for EVERYTHING! I leave no stone unturned. I decide if what I do will end up being a more musical experience and not the opposite like more processed sounding. I split hairs!! I have learned what is more musical from all the decades of listening to differences. Stereo and audio gear is not nearly as subjective as people make it out to be. It is either more musical or more processed sounding at the end of the day. One more thing I learned, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE SAME! Practically the same yes! The same, NO! So with this all said…..I thank all the people here for the great compliments since I came here in 2006. It means a lot to me after decades of sleepless nights and stressful days carrying in top shelve equipment every time out!***
PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT ON THE 24 BIT 192 KHZ RESOLUTION!!! IF YOU WANT TO UPLOAD A CD FORMAT GO KNOCK YOURSELF OUT. JUST PUT A COPY OF THE TEXT DESCRIPTION AND PUT THIS LINK IN THE FIRST FEW COMMENTS!
In this day and age, anyone in the trading world who cannot handle "with ease" a 5GB file is way beyond my comprehension. This is NOT an invitation for you to tell me why you won't/can't.
With every digital transfer the master tapes become obsolete. If you try any which way to transfer them again they won't sound as good. As long as there are ample backups of course there is no need for them.
