Over the last three days, I had a most memorable experience with Ensemble Modern http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ensemble_Modern. They were taking part in the Slovenian Musical Days : https://www.ensemble-modern.com/de/konzerte/kalender/L/65   Beyond the concerts, they have been recording the works of Vito Žuraj http://www.vitozuraj.com/en/main.php, the young composer who this year received Slovenia's most prestigious award for culture, the Prešeren Prize.    Since I am...
I meant for MASTER recordings - microphone>outboard pramp>(Korg) recorder. I will go into this in a day or two in more detail - tomorrow I have test "ultrasonic loundermat Monday" for LPs and tons of chores on Tuesday - but I will get back to you ASAP. Periscope down ...
Player only - smartphone + iFi iDSD nano (highly portable) or micro (twice the size, performance, battery life - but not necessary better sounding ). There are quite strigent requirements for phones and for DSD only recently introduced SD card from Kingston has "enough" capacity - and is not (yet?) supported by any phone I know of. Perhaps in 12 moths... I am going to OFFing for a little while - while transfering today's yield of GBs to my RAID array...
Hi oghoter, I really appreciate your answer. I have had it with recording for this weekend - and "fate" had it it was my highly modified MR-1. Two days in a studio - and I am basically set to - OFF. For portable DSD, look no futher than Korg MR-1000. It is becoming ever more rare and ever more expen$ive, there is SECONDs  till the end : http://www.ebay.de/itm/261805232193?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
I did not go trough the entire thread, so please forgive me if this was mentioned before. Material suitable for the graphite coating on plastic films is colloidal graphite in water,  commercial name Aquadag, what it used to be the company called Acheson, being somewhere along the way acquired by Henkel :  http://www.henkelna.com/about-henkel/product-search-1554.htm?nodeid=8798046388225 For the ESL diaphragm coating, it can and has to be dilluted VERY MUCH - and you can...
+10 to the power of infinity !!!! I was looking for this cartoon everywhere - originally IIRC from the Stereo Review.  The most hilarious one I can remember is when the technical director and managing director of a loudspeaker manufacturer are having meeting with the Boss - showing him the latest  speakers from the competition. The Boss starts to rant : So, they give this junk of theirs 360 degrees of dispersion... OK, let's give ours 420 degrees !!!!
I can sympathize with you regarding the "dirty" musicians ( anyone who has to plug into any electrical device in order for us to hear him/her in the first place ). I agree that digital has allowed the access to recording music to the masses - which is a good thing. Post production tools can be used well or poorly, yet I resort to them only if no other course is available. In acoustic music, if correct from the playing/performance view, they are not necessary - at all. For...
One should not do that. Regarding the psychology of knowing to have done everything - or at least "enough" - an example from cycling : Any rider will tell you that it feels much different if he/she him/herself has cleaned and inspected the bike prior to a (n important) ride. True, even the pros have mechanics to do this job for them, it is their/YOUR head - a slight crack that developed on the frame during the last ride covered by even the slightest residue of a light...
I remember the only reggae concert I attended live - not by the concert itself, not even by the artist, but by the statement the lead singer made during that concert in late 70s :   Computers are killing the music   I have to admit I was shocked and completely clueless as to what he meant - vinyl records were still in the shops, CD was something no one outside Philips/Sony labs held in his/her hands, it was still relatively good regarding the sound quality.   And...
