Vivaldi's best known work, The Four Seasons is given new life in this Audiophile recording from Chasing the Dragon.
This 1/4" Master Tape Copy was created from the 30IPS 1/2" Running Masters at Air Studios.
**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.Regarding the D2D LP Pressing:
In order to make the D2D Vinyl recording, the Interpreti Veneziani Chamber Orchestra performs each album side live in the studio, recorded via state of the art, all-tube valve microphones, fed to a Neve Desk, and then via a pure analogue path directly to the Neumann VMS80 lathe.
The brilliantly captured session was carefully engineered, and mixed live, no overdubs! During the performance, the Neumann VMS 80 Cutting head engages the master lacquer ("stamper" used for pressing LPs) and is not stopped until the entire side is complete! The results are amazing! A dynamic album that needs to be heard!
