PROUDLY LOUD
Posted by Sid Smith on Oct 6, 2022

Every now and then Alex ‘Stormy’ Mundy emerges from the DGM vaults into the daylight and go for a wander. Recently Alex found himself in the premises of LOUD Mastering in Taunton, Somerset. The good folks at LOUD have been responsible for the mastering of many a KC and Robert Fripp item in recent years. “I was taking down some tapes for storage,” explains Alex regarding his visit. “Jason Mitchell happened to be working on a master when I called in.  That disc has the test audio on it which he then plays on his playback turntable. It was brilliant to watch him set up...

 

"There is a microscope through which you can check the way the grooves have been cut into the master, making sure that they don’t have too much wave in them which could lead to the distortion of certain frequencies. Although the audio is coming from the computer, it does go through a digital to analogue converter before getting to the cutting machine.”
