Oh and here's an interesting comparison of different analog and digital masterings OF THE SAME SOURCE MATERIAL done by a professional mastering engineer.
We're talking new vinyl sales, so let's put aside the obvious benefits of owning a turntable if you already have a significant vinyl collection.
I personally believe uncompressed digital formats, starting with Redbook CD, have a greater POTENTIAL in terms of functionality as well as fidelity than vinyl. Unfortunately, this potential has been unfulfilled as the vast majority of digital releases fail to live up to this potential by a fair margin due to poor mastering. The loudness wars has dumbed down the format to such an extent that one of its primary advantages over vinyl - dynamic range - has all but been nullified. The mastering engineers have decided that you and your playback devices are too stupid to set the volume to your liking so they've made the decision for you - typically 11 out of 10.
Ironically, most vinyl releases sound better than their digital counterparts simply because their volume hasn't been jacked to ridiculous levels at the mastering stage.
By this logic, US firms are doing a great disservice to themselves by limiting the availability of exceptional talent in the fields of executive managment and even public office positions. What's good for the goose, after all...
Steve Hoffman compares masterings of cd, vinyl, sacd, open reel to reel to the original master tape.
Indeed, one day archeologists will dig up a pile of line printer output from some long lost CS lab as the only remains of The Second Age of Light. The secrets contained will fuel the legendary Search For The Rosetta.h file where all those confounded macros are defined.
C was obviously invented to fill a niche - SkyNet will need a language to develop their self-aware minions.
Otherwise, don't try this at home, kids.
A Shit Ton of them, and see them through to establishment.
We've decimated one of the largest moderators of climate on this planet in the past couple of centuries and until we start reversing this trend in a serious way, I wouldn't expect much progress on the climate front.
Why dance around the issues with the security facade? If the U.S. would just flat out block all incoming traffic it would be a win-win for everyone involved, as the rest of us can plan accordingly and get on with our lives.
Spoken like a true industrial ag shrill, hence the AC.
GMO != selective breeding
Please, for the love of god, don't let this opportunity go to waste.
I theorize that if you remove ego and ignorance from the equation, the flow of traffic would improve exponentially.
While the media and investor focus is on Elon Musk's attempt to disrupt the passenger vehicle industry, could farm machinery be the thin edge of the wedge towards an EV breakthrough?"
You're not wrong - something may very well happen to keep the technology from being mass produced. EV production and advancement has been stalled many times in an effort to maintain the status quo. Here's a story from Steve Hekeroth, an individual who knows all too well.
Unsurprisingly, it has taken a billionaire entrepreneur, Elon Musk, to disrupt the market. Let's hope the trend continues.
