Nine Inch Nails Hesitation Marks, Audiophile? | Super Best Audio Friends

So what do you think?

Since that can define how loud of a level the mastering can be, we were faced with a dilemma: Since we had tried to treat every other aspect of making this record incj to how we were used to, it seemed to make sense.

For whatever reason, dedicated vinyl masters today seem to be at a bare minimum of DR9, with most into double iinch. Home ask submit Archive. No, create an account now.

Listen to each and come to your own conclusions. Hi Dave — for one possible example, see this post: Super Best Audio Friends. For the majority of people, the standard version will be preferable and differences will be difficult to detect. Await the next Battlecats Dynamites Gacha event for the drawbridge to be lowered.
