Measuring the groove...thanks for posting !

I feel like vinyl manufacturers would try to prevent that from becoming a reality any time soon.

Possibly...  Maybe it's a technology they could license, and market themselves? 

It's still far from being fully realized at this point.

Some interesting work being done by ZoStream; supposedly true lossless digital.

Their patent was granted last fall; they're currently chasing funding and working up prototypes.



Long discussion thread about it here:  https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php/314365-Patent-Licensing-Advice

I know there are even discussions about Mono being the best and only true representation of music.

Sounds like yet another analog is best thing. Analog mono synths are the original essence of electronic music.  ;D

I was referring to monaural, as opposed to monophonic :)

It would never occur to me to remaster someone else's music. I try to get into the mind of the composer - but I also prefer instrumental music because I am free to imagine whatever the music inspires in my mind, rather than having my thoughts directed by lyrics. 

But I suppose the remastering Tardigrade describes is just an extension of how I used to record tracks to cassette to create compilations - taking what is given and changing it for my own preference. It's amazing that the technology to achieve it is now so easily available.....(showing my age there a little....)
 

The purpose of me remastering my collection of 10,000+ songs is not to disrespect artists that I admire.  It's intended to make my entire collection of music significantly more compatible when played randomly.  If I didn't do this, it would be impossible to enjoy a random play from my entire collection unless I rode the fader, several EQs and compressors. 

I have unapologetically remastered Brian Eno, Steve Roach, Robert Rich and pretty much everyone famous and not really famous in Ambient.  I'm very happy with the way they sound now and don't think anyone would object to what I have done if they listened to it with my system.

I wouldn't be surprised if most of what you do is getting the volumes more consistent between different albums with some subtle EQ'ing here and there.

Hi Tardigrade, I was purely reflecting on my own thought processes, in response to what others have been saying, not making any judgement on anyone's actions.

As I said, given the technology available to do whatever with whatever, changing what someone has put out is an extension of making mixtapes.

I know that when I buy cd players I always by single disc players as I want to be conscious of what I am choosing to listen to. I don't have streaming services, don't use computer's to play music and never use random/shuffle mode on CDs or MP3 players - just my own personal preferences for listening.

Similarly when I am out in some beautiful part of the world I don't carry a music player as I want to listen to what's going on around me.

Music from vinyl creates real waves. Digital music consists of bits and bytes. Bits and bytes cannot simulate real vibrations.  Depending on the recording resolution they generate artefacts. Digital cannot replace real waves. It comes close but it is not the same.
 

24bit/96k or even 24bit/48k recorded with a semi pro quality rig sounds exactly like the input.  Literally no one can reliably tell the difference when there is a less than a 20% chance of guessing correctly.  I agree things on vinyl sound different than the same release on a CD.  A lot of this has to do with the needle and the turntable.  LPs are romantic.  I love them.  I also love to capture them digitally at their prime.  The prime LP for me is one that has a bit of dust in the grooves.
