Great Article: The Death of High Fidelity
« on: December 29, 2007, 12:53:15 PM »
Someone posted this article in the Ampex forum and I thought it was quite good.  It discusses compression in recording today, as well as interesting tidbits such as this:

In 2004, Jeff Buckley's mom, Mary Guibert, listened to the original three-quarter-inch tape of her son's recordings as she was preparing the tenth-anniversary reissue of Grace. "We were hearing instruments you've never heard on that album, like finger cymbals and the sound of viola strings being plucked," she remembers. "It blew me away because it was exactly what he heard in the studio."
