New Beck Track "Wow" In 24/96 WAV

Recommended Posts

I'm not a dynamic range nazi, but this brings up an interesting question. Assuming the original source material was recorded & archived with a DR4, what would be the possible benefits of releasing in a high-res format? Frequency response beyond 21khz?

It's a cool track, but those focussed on the technical aspects and ultimate sound quality will want to skip it.

DR value = 4

I'll place my vote against this type of extreme compression with my wallet and just keep my money in my pocket. Plenty of other music to support and spend my money on. :(
