Careful what you ask for

"No matter what you do in the recording venue it will never sound like you are sitting in that venue with the vocalist and musicians. We should put an end to this nonsense already. There are plenty of recordings that sound more musical than listening to live and vice versa."

Hmmmm. There's merit in this statement. In fact, it really addresses the point of a modern recording.

We're not trying to recreate what you hear in row 10, middle seat behind the lady with the big hat. No, that may be the best seat in the house, but that's not even close to what a nearfield capture of the music sounds like.

Great recordings like those we work hard to create at Octave Records are better than live.
