    This past Wednesday, my friend Stuart Yaniger spent the afternoon with Milwaukee-based singer, songwriter and musician Peter Mulvey. The goal was to capture some of Peter's music-making at its most intimate; completely naked.

    That meant live, with a simple Blumlein pair of microphones, and no EQ, compression or other processing.

    I'd like to share one of the tracks here to give folks an idea of what completely unadulterated music sounds like.

    The most obvious is that it's not that loud comparatively speaking. However the headroom on the recording is 0dB. The loudest peak on the track takes up the full 24 bits (sampling rate was 96kHz).

    Also keep in mind that this was not recorded in a studio. It was recoded in Stuart's library at his home in a residential area.

    The track (The Knuckleball Suite, title track from Peter's 2006 album) is hosted on our Soundcloud account with downloading enabled so you can play it back on any system.
