Here's why: Acknowledging the fact that Jeff is pretty much lying in a bed of his own making, I have noticed something of a knee-jerk reaction to almost anything he says on this board. Granted, I don't know all of the history perhaps, I've been around here awhile but I'm still kind of a new guy, bu...

Misleading thread title...I thought you were somehow trying to lock the two together or something.

Your biggest discussion here should be about signal to noise ratio and dynamic range. With tape you sacrifice both. With digital both improve. Precisely... dynamic range is the enemy. I want to sacrifice it in the way tape does. Tracking and mixing. Cheers, Otto I agree. 24-bit digital feels loose,...

Comparing an analog and digital recording of the same take through the exact same signal path and monitoring situation. My digital system is more accurate, I can't believe I'd ever write this. I get that the analog format can have some glue to it when used right, but, the stereo image and depth of ...

Another hot stat just reported- We listen to 19% of the music we own. Now, this stat is for the typical iTunes song collection. Could we extrapolate and say the same about our CD collections? http://www.fmqb.com/goout.asp?u=http://withme.com/2011/05/4195-reasons-youre-wasting-your-time-with-google-m...

oh please. even my otari 1/2" 8 track has a perfectly excellent dynamic range and a noise floor i have to crank the monitors to hear. i'm actually thinking of putting that sucker back into service for recording drums, as the tape compression just makes them so much easier to deal with later.

Re: Why would an artist have a myspace page today...

About two months ago I removed our facebook and myspace pages both because of the social networking factor. I couldn't stand it anymore. And therein lies the problem with the artist, it's about the fans, not about the artist. The artist craves recognition, but is unlikely to give any in return. It'...

Your biggest discussion here should be about signal to noise ratio and dynamic range. With tape you sacrifice both. With digital both improve. In the Musician/Engineer Survey, a little over half of the 600+ folks responding favored dynamic range over frequency response. http://www.myspace.com/musici...
