"Bring back the noise" was the prescription from indie artists during an animated discussion
In the transition from analog to digital recording of music, what's been lost in the process?
What I learned as a college disk jockey was that the peak sound quality of an LP was the seventh playing. Needless to say, my present collection is more than 90 percent CD, and that will only increase.
Human hearing is more welcoming to a tighter frequency range like vinyl. Digital is not an accurate representation of real sound either, as it settles on Quantization and Bits for accuracy. With that said, CD audio is brick walled at 18K during mastering. So it's more about bits and in relationship to accuracy not frequency numbers. Air is air.
I still got one of these laying around. I used it a few times and it sounded good. I'm thinking about running a tape sync track and being happy with my little 3 tracks of analog lol. Then Ill eventually bounce to digital.
