  1. Any one heard these? And can it be true? This review thinks so;https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/jabra-elite-85h-best-noise-canceling-headphones-ces-2019/ https://www.cnet.com/news/jabra-elite-85h-noise-canceling-headphone/

    It looks like a pretty big little bastard that microphone🙂 And what an approach, mixing on the spot: "Multi track recording has advantages and disadvantages. The good is that you can make an instrument louder or softer as you please. The bad thing when the recording is done in one room is phase. Maybe, the most time consuming aspect of our way of recording is getting the phase between the mics right. Frans de Rond is a true genius in that field and his expertise is one of the secrets to our well defined sound stage. Now with only one mic the challenge lay elsewhere. Mixing was no longer possible. We would have to make the complete sound stage right there by carefully moving each instrument closer or further away as well as left and right in relationship to the microphone. Carmen was given a headphone so she could hear exactly what the mic was hearing. She could then direct the musicians and with hand gestures let each band member play louder or softer." source: https://www.soundliaison.com/index.php/408-carmen-gomes-inc-dont-you-cry
  3. On some tracks the vocals are bit further back in the mix but I think the vocals on i.e. "Summertime" is absolutely stunning. The repertoire is also more laid back than on "Sings the Blues'' but i'm happy that it is; ''Where Can I Go'' , ''Sweet Lorraine'', ''How Long''...these are superb interpretations.... And indeed they probably cannot fix anything in the mix as with a multitrack recording, but the benefits are obvious, it sounds so very real. As if the band is in the room. I hope they will issue more recordings done in this way. https://www.soundliaison.com/index.php/408-carmen-gomes-inc-dont-you-cry
  4. This sounds absolutely incredible. One microphone...it blows away a whole lot of modern multi microphone recordings.

  6. yes, I see your point, different formats, so I guess it's ok to do that.
  7. But if you create DXD from a lower resolution, that is up sampling.....? or do I see that wrong?

    Marilyn Mazur also played and recorded with Miles Davis. This is an excellent recording under her own name; https://www.ecmrecords.com/catalogue/143038752758/celestial-circle-marilyn-mazur-josefine-cronholm-john-taylor-anders-jormin
