THE ADVANTAGES OF 24-bit/96kHz RECORDING
You deserve the best representation of your artistry, therefore we always record at 24-bit/96kHz which captures almost five times as much information as a commercial CD, which is 16-bit/44.1kHz.
The 16-bit/44.1kHz technology used for Redbook Standard (commercial) CDs cannot capture or convey enough audio detail in the transients, harmonics and sub-harmonics, the ambiance (room noise, air noise) etc., that creates the full, warm, sweet sound we are used to hearing in a live situation. That is why many people complain of CD recordings that sound harsh or brittle or missing the "room" sound. Recording at 24-bit/96kHz allows us to capture a world of sounds in the 10kHz-20kHz range that include all those extra transients.
We always record at 24-bit/96kHz which captures almost five times as much information as a commercial CD, which is 16-bit/44.1kHz. Because we have captured so much extra information, the mix-down to a Redbook standard 16/44.1 commercial CD retains much of the warmth and life that is the heart of the live performance. Plus, we have the original High Def. 24-bi /96kHz recordings archived for future use in surround and SACD or DVD-Audio.
BENEFITS OF RECORDING IN A NATURAL ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT:
Individuals and Ensembles used to performing in concert halls or churches can work in a familiar environment, rather than having to adapt to strange acoustics or headphones.
Performers can sit in their regular seating configuration and the recording can capture an accurate stereo image of each performer, combined with the natural reverberation and harmonic interaction of the instruments.
The recorded sound can be compared easily with the actual sound in the hall, allowing the musicians to maintain full control over the "final mix" of dynamics, phrasing and blend.
Given the availability of high quality portable recording equipment, a recording can be made almost anywhere, from the comforts of a persons home, to the most remote wilderness. The real benefit of recording on location, however, is access to performance halls and churches with their beautiful acoustics, grand pianos and pipe organs.
We always record at 24-bit / 96kHz which captures almost five times as much information as a commercial CD, which is 16-bit / 44.1kHz. Because we have captured so much extra information, the mix-down to a Redbook standard 16/44.1 commercial CD retains much of the warmth and life that is the heart of the live performance.
We archive the original High Definition 24-bit/96kHz recordings for future use in Surround, SACD, and DVD-Audio.
