It was the tape decay.

An interesting read if you haven't already read it: https://issuu.com/headlinerhub/docs/headliner_22/52

It's an interview with an Abbey Road Studios mastering engineer. It shows that the quality of the record depends on the engineer's discipline, and I suppose also on which engineer the studio chooses.



Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

For me Vinyl is more engaging especially when I have the time to go through the process of picking a record, setting it up on the table, etc etc. But digital works when I just want to quickly fire up some songs.

Hi Robert
I totally agree with you on that. For me it's CD, when it is late at night ( and have had a beer or two ) Better off with a CD on than a record playing, falling to sleep and wearing the needle and the vinyl out plus you can't play vinyl in the car. So for me Digital has it's place, I do have good recordings on both CD and Vinyl. BUT you can't beat going to see a good live band

So true. What I miss most at the moment (and for the foreseeable, alas - at least in the UK). Vinyl is wonderful, digital has its rightful place(s) - but the live experience is by definition unique - good, bad, ugly - or all three. Like Eric Dolphy said - "gone in the air"....

I don't care much for form. If online download, CD and vinyl all had equivalent quality and availability, I would choose download. Instead I choose CD because download quality is poor and vinyl is unavailable/expensive, too big to store and can be tedious to set up and operate. But I'm a music lover, not an audiophile.
