Talk about audio engineering and music recording tactics.

fHumble fHingaz came up with an awesome little shootout. What's awesome about it is he's not telling you what to listen for. You know what that means? It means that all the bias you have about sample rates, bit depth, analog compression, and the other things we fight about is out the window.
I'm excited about this double-blind business because it goes along with what this site has always been about from the beginning. The idea is to make REAL improvements to our recordings and
I've got this little problem. I'm always wondering if the problems I experience SHOULD be happening. For example, on one day with one song I may record a singer using X chain and say, “Wow!
