Classical Recording with Separate Microphone Comparison Tracks on CD!

Chasing The Dragon have chosen Mendelssohn's wonderful octet performed by The Locrian Ensemble for their latest recording. The musicians are all soloists in their own right; however, they are led by the ubiquitous violinist, Jack Liebeck.

The recording has given Chasing The Dragon the opportunity to compare a variety of microphone techniques, which they do in the second half of the album. You can compare valve vs transistor mics and the sound of analogue 1/2" master tape running at 30 IPS vs digital at 24 / 192, all recorded at the same time. They have even used their binaural head - which sounds great on headphones!
