the record spot
If you'll do likewise with your nonsense, we can put this to rest. Your choice.Blu_Blu said:]Why do you keep name dropping? Ash, Barry Diament, Steve Hoffman, or whoever? Can you not just debate like everyone else without trying to make yourself sound important?
And can you please stop the anti HDD aggression? It's uncalled for and dare I say it, even the regulars here are sick and tired of it,
You said I'd been banned from the AVI forum. I wasn't; I asked the moderator there, Ashley James, to delete my account. Should I make another name up? What would you like me to use?
I mention Barry Diament, Steve Hoffman, Joe Gastwirt, Vic Anesini, Bernie Grundman and a bunch of others because they're masters of the mastering engineer's craft (IMO).
I've yet to hear a duffer from Barry Diament and I've got a stack of albums with his name on them. He was at Atlantic in the 80s and I just happen to like a bunch of acts who were on the label then - Zep, Genesis (Atlantic was their US label), Yes...take yer pick.
Mastering comes up regularly for good reason, and if you want to ignore it that's your problem. The Steve Hoffman forum is a great resource for finding good recordings and general information on the subject. Maybe if you spent some time reading up on the subject, you might get something out of it, to anyone, I mention the names I listed because they might want to try the discs out for themselves. It's all on the Hoffman forum.
