While this one has been in circulation since 1992, originally released as 44.1kHz 16-bit, it still remains the Gold Standard; all the more so as this is now 96kHz 32-bit floating point – for real. Recorded on a secret mountain top in Southern New Mexico in 1988 (to DAT) the peak of which every single tree (see blog) had the tell-tale single burn mark as well as being dead, indicating a direct lightning strike. There’s something special about that mountain top. Painstakingly remastered to 96kHz 32-bit floating-point (no shortcuts padding it with useless zeros: that would be cheap and lazy). Embrace it; it’s our near-future and everything I publish from here on out will be at this sample rate and resolution.
Hear for Yourself:
Originally recorded with two Schoeps MK-4s ORTF to DAT at 48kHz 16-bit.
