As you listen to modern music repeatedly in coffee shops, you start to develop this supernatural ability to discern music recorded on analog tape and music captured digitally. Maybe not as useful of an ability as flying or shooting fireballs but definitely rewarding when you discover a new artist via this technique.
I’ve spent a lot of time looking for the original pressing of this record. A rare gatefold that has been re-issued a number of times. Not even sure if the one I own is in fact an original but I finally got a hold of it in Japan. I’ll tell you, if you can’t find a rare vinyl you’re desperately searching for, fly to Japan. I can guarantee they have every single type of pressing you’ve ever imagined of.
I’d like to analyze some of the effects I used in my songs for my first album demos and share those with whom might be interested. These effects are mainly decorative and do not involve proper mixing techniques but are rather used to support my artistic direction. They color the songs but do not enhance them professionally speaking.
