slightly OT...

Compression in classical recording is an interesting problem.

I recorded a gorgeous rendition of the Rachmaninov 3rd Piano Concerto last summer and have done several remixes of the event, sadly by request.

The favorite one, by far, has strong compression that is obvious to me, evidently, but guess what- the pianist and conductor think it sounds the best, and they have NO idea of the compression. But I have to say, it sounds great in the car!

Sigh...

The loudness thing today....

it just SUCKS.

sorry for the rant and the bandwidth.
