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.
This recording use a pair of vintage Neumann KM-56c tube microphone, with handmade full tube power supply to have a very reach and worm tube sound.
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!
