Source C: DAT --- SKM 140's > Sony PCM-M1 (Oade Bros Mod II) @ 48 KHZ
Position: Floor / Seated-Back
MP3 Sample: Right click & save
Notes: This is a really, really cool recording. The sound itself has the sonic 'big room' feel of a nice pair of microphones that, ideally, woudl be up on a mic stand rather than stealthed in a shirt or under a sweater. I scratch my head wondering how he got these mics + the wire in; that is some considerable size. That's mighty impressive. Instead of the standard fair 'small mic' sound (is that real or did I just make that up?) this source is by far the most superior creation out there. There is not, obviously, that front of stack feel per se but what is left leaves the listener with the feeling that they are, almost, there. That's the mark of a really good recording; if it can evoke appreciation for not just the performance but also for the overall sound of what it is you are listening to. Fantastic; this could be a thing of legend in a decade or so.
