Re(2): Captured Tracks - Who Stole the Dynamics Off Lizardland? IP: 220.127.116.11 Posted on January 16, 2017 at 09:17:36 PM by Tom
Thank you for the reply, Martin. Don't get me wrong -- the stuff, even the lo-fi, sounds good, it just lacks the original tapes' dynamic range. It's not just your stuff or just Captured Tracks -- most modern pressings of CDs or digital downloads do not take advantage of the full dynamic spectrum. It's been dubbed the Loudness Wars. They just add compression and clipping where none exists which makes me scratch my head. I concur with your small speaker theory and prefer them myself. Cheers, and thanks for the great music! - Tom Replies:
