ABout this recording
The recording equipments used in this album has been extensively modified to use discrete op amps to replace the integrated circuit op amps in the original circuit, so it has a wider frequency response, sharper response speed and more amazing transient dynamics. Because discrete OP amps need high operating current, the power supply of the mixing console and the tape recorder have been considerably improved.
In order to demonstrate the advantages of modern analog tape recording with large bandwidth and excellent transient response, the main microphone of the recording uses two paired German Schoeps CMC6XT2S omni-directional microphones with a bandwidth from 3Hz to 40KHz in linear! After the signal is amplified and mixed by the Swiss made Studer 962 analog mixer, then directly recorded into Studer A807 MK2 two-track tape recorder with Recording The Master SM911 tape.
In order for you to hear the most expressive recordings, the tape you get is a one-to-one, 1:1 copy from the original tape!
