The wonderful Trio de Curda performs a program of Tango and Latin music, built around Astor Piazzolla's monumental "Libertango", which gives this album its name.
Recorded "off-the-floor" on 1/4" Analog Tape on a Nagra IV-S Tape Recorder in CCIR eq curve, with no overdubs and no editing. This is a wonderful, spontaneous, direct recording by René Laflamme at L'Église St-Jean Baptiste in Montreal on October 28, 2019. Only one Neumann Stereo Tube Microphone (SM69) was used in the Pure Blumlein microphone technique.
Audio tapes from 2xHD guarantees that ultimate quality is preserved from the original master in contrast to vinyl albums, CDs or other formats. The transfer is made to the best magnetic tape on the market today, Recording the master, SM468. This tape has the best Print-through protection and longest storage life.
Based in Montreal and created by audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme and producer André Perry, all 2xHD Tapes are from the original analog master and transfer in analog domain using a Nagra-T tape recorder, modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired from the playback head. In the high end audio world, René has carved out a reputation for definition of excellence and uses his knowledge and unfailing instinct to match various audio components to create the best all-encompassing sound experience.
For the recording on this tape, the original 1/4" 15 ips NAB or CCIR master tapes were played on a Nagra-T tape recorder, modified wtih high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Nick Doshi tube head preamplifier. The Nagra T, with its four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head, is one of the best transports ever made. A custom-built carbon fiber head block and a head damping electronic system permit 2xHD FUSION to obtain more transparency and better 3D imaging. This copy was recorded on a Nagra IV-S 1/4" at 15 ips.
**It is standard practice in all recording studios to keep the tape "tail out". This reduces "pre-echo" and it means that the tape should be placed on the right hand side of the recorder, re-wound and then played.
