DSD STILL RULES
It’s great to see and hear the new interest in DSD now in the form of downloads online. If you are into Hi-Rez, you can find my stuff online now at these two places:
If you are not into Hi-Rez but are curious about it, just reply to this message and let me know. Most people are now playing DSD along with their whole iTunes collection and other stuff through what they call media players.
Popular media players are by JRiver, Audirvana, Channel D. These are usually free to try and then cost $50 or so to buy. A free .ORG version for Windows is at http://www.foobar2000.org
If it sounds good…it is good!
Many thanks to the exhibitors at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver last weekend for demoing my DSD tracks: Positive Feedback Online, SuperHiRez.com, exaSound.com, Puget Sound Studios, Channel Classics, Lumin, Mytek…Awesome!
A new single is going to be out on October 25th. It’s called “Silver Pen” recorded to DSD by Charlie Natzke at Slipperworld.net in La Honda, Calif.
“Silver Pen” will then be online as a download from CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon, Sonify, Rhapsody…
You can download the MP3-320 of it for $0.00 right now…
Thanks for reading my blog!
This is a track from a complete album to be released later this year as a DSD Download. The album is all previously unreleased songs recorded at Slipperworld featuring these musicians: Charlie Natzke, Chris Kee, Scott Beynon, Ken Owen.
These are all live studio (ala “Crossing” and “The Window”) recorded with minimum mics, less than 8-tracks including natural room reverb. They are without edits and overdubs. It is what it was…
The sound is not always entirely acoustic, but echos the sound of many shows with the CasualTees and XING before that (like the shows coming up in San G!). These were the essence of the years performing on the West Coast in the frequent trio and quartet arrangements. Upright and electric bass, electric and acoustic guitars and drums all got recorded live in the studio. So it sounds live. Like listening from a very good seat in the house…
THANKS FOR LISTENING!
