With digital recording, we've been able to achieve a lot of benefits over analog (tape in particular), but there's still a ways to go. It isn't perfect.

And Joeq, some of the problems we had in 1999 are still with us. It's far better than it was, it's more refined, but the fundamental flaws are still there. Let's see what happens in 2040. We'll probably be laughing at how bad digital recording was back in 2020. As a matter of fact, I'd be willing to bet on it. And if I'm wrong, I hope I'm around for you to collect on that debt, but I wouldn't count on it. Looking forward to my 30 year badge.
Ah, I see. It was just that your original post didn't reference the fact that B and C were heard in combination with A. But, given what you were trying to demonstrate, you probably assumed it would be obvious to folks. I get it.
