I (thankfully) don't listen to this band but I have Prosthetic Records on my Facebook due to a few others on their roster that I appreciate.

Here's a screenshot of what these dumbasses submitted to the label as their "master." Is anyone else shocked that any record company would accept this as normal?



...I guess we can expect this sort of "professionalism" from the recording industry these days.

Yeah, everyone seemed to be in agreement that many of those examples exhibited at least some less DRC than the CD. (Except for you much later of course. Looked at some pics and proclaimed they were all the same but one when others clearly were not.) I'm not certain how it can be determined that a CD was used in any of them. It could have been a CD that was less dynamically compressed though.

Seriously...I like what can fly right under the Bullshit Detector here while everyone that isn't on the same page of the Amen Circle's hymnal is slapped with a TOS violation or dog-piled with derision rather than explanation. (There's my bit of condescension equating everything to a struggle between Church and Science. I think that's fair. I'm certainly not above it so I can play now too.)

Does it bother you to think a CD may have been used for any of them? If you can't tell then what's the point of getting so riled up about it?

If so then it was still a CD, but all of a sudden it doesn't seem so bad now, does it?

I was just stating that it "could" have been a CD.

My entire thing is that IMO there's no reason not to use higher than Redbook until it goes to Redbook.

OT: I agree that DRC is a far more important than my complaints about using a Redbook CD-R to cut vinyl. I miss the Longbox-Days when purchase of a CD almost certainly guaranteed you got the best possible version of a current recording.
