    I just mastered ("regular" mastering - As close to a flat transfer as possible) Dan's new Listening Sessions disc - Small condenser microphones...

    Pretty impressive sounds from some surprisingly cheap (not "inexpensive," but *CHEAP*) microphones in the collection...

    That disc is going to take a few people by surprise...

    Frankly, I find both the mic and preamp charts fairly useless. The measure of grain vs smooth are critical in both mics and preamps. If something is very colored and very grainy, 9 times out of ten you won't end up using it, for very long, and will seek to get a device with more detail.

    Both of these charts require a measure of grain and a measure of frequency response to be truely useful.

    He uses 4 variables on the mic chart there should be 6. Preamps are rated from transparent to color yet, there should be 4 if you include grain and freq response.

    well hes still working on them --but i dont think he can give every detail on each just to give you a :roll: basic idea of what your lookin at..
    also if you see the {marks} on the Great river that shows the range of the preamps color.He probably will add these for each preamp...
