those old, obsolete, digital r-r decks
« on: June 14, 2005, 01:34:54 AM »

What's the deal with those old digital r-r decks?  I keep reading people saying how bad the DASH machines sounded, but the records I own from the late 80's with the "DDD" moniker don't sound that different from records made the same time (and SSL budget) on Studer/Dolby A.  I actually think some of them sound quite good, and way better than Pro Tools (am I crazy?).  I'm listening to 'Like a Prayer' right now, sort of dancing to it, and I like it.  Was that DASH or the Mitsubishi 32trk?  Also, does anyone know what the soundtrack to the 'Akira' anime film (also DDD) was produced on?  It's a fucking sonic powerhouse!  I think I'm still on that path of trying to get a great documentation of rock and roll without saturation on my end of things.  I want to be blinded by clarity, in sort of a punk rock fuck you way.  No sonic 'mystery' imposed on the sound with this approach.  ECM Arvo Part recordings.

Thanks,
Nicholas
