Yes, I did the transfer of CCR - Chronicle as well.
Cool. Out of curiosity, and if you can say, what format did the tracks come in on? Meaning, 2 track analog master or digital and if digital what format? Was it a straight transfer or was there processing? Is there any info as to the origin of the files? I.e. which master(s) did they come from?
I have no problem purchasing hi-res transfers if they sound better than what was mastered on CD. Ideally, I would like to hear what the mixing engineer heard.
The issue is that I can't tell what it is that I am purchasing as there are no tech specs. What would be great is a blurb like the attached Producer/Engineer note when I downloaded TP's Damn the Torperdoes: "We made the FLAC files from the same high-resolution uncompressed 24-bit 96K master stereo files we used for the vinyl and Blu-Ray versions of Damn The Torpedoes: Deluxe Edition. When we compared those files to the FLAC’s, the waveforms tested out to be virtually identical. With the right system, you’ll be as close to being there as we can get you."
I know what I am getting and happy to pay the price! Sounds great too!
If you can't answer, I understand as it may be a conflict of interest. As an audiophile (and ex recording/mixing engineer http://www.thepikes.com/bio ) I am curious to know more about the transfer process and to better understand what it is that I am purchasing from a technical perspective.
