**24 bit audio**
From Matt Smith -
These are Will Boswell's reels.
Both Pat[Lee] and myself knew to get Will's reels since they were all 7 1/2 ips. the lineage is MR>R@ 7 1/2 ips.
Tape stock:Maxell UD35-7 tape.
Transfer info:Akai GX636>Apogee Mini Me @24bit/96kHz > Apogee mini DAC(monitoring/mastering) >
Lynx One Audio Card > Wavelab 5.0 > FLAC.
Edited on the GEMS Edit Station by Jamie Waddell.
No DSP applied. I balanced the channels and smoothed the reel flips.
No patches have been made from alternate sources.

|Brand new and dripping with Thanksgiving goodness.
|24 bit audiophile grade
THERE IS NO REASON FOR ANYONE TO CONVERT THIS TO 16 BIT AND CIRCULATE IT. Please respect that
master reel sources are coming from Bill Gadsen via CM and this was seeded at Lossless Legs by our project GEMS for audiophile usage and comparison.
please download this 24 bit with that caveat
if you NEED 1644,
windows users seek out R8Brain for FREE conversion to 1644
mac users seek out Barbabatch for FREE conversion to 1644
for personal use
cheers and happy holiDaze,
|WOW! Thanks J :)
|suprised u didnt tag this. thanks for the up!

|what is the difference between 16 & 24 bit??
|"what is the difference between 16 & 24 bit??"
There is that website, www.letmegooglethat4u.com.......
|The sound quality on this is phenomenal. If your computer can handle 24 bit files, this becomes a must have.
The number of bits refers to the number of discrete levels that are available to be selected from at each sample point.
16 bit = 2^16 = 65,536
24 bit = 2^24 = 16,777,216
Computer color can make it more tangible. Consider that there are an infinite number of hues with infinite variations in brightness in the real world. 8 bit color allows for 256 different colors to be selected to reproduce a picture. Everything gets reduced to one of those 256 colors. The reproduced pictureat 8 bits loses a lot. 16 bit color has 65,536 colors to select from. The result is much closer to reality. 24 bit color has 16,777,216 colors to select from and basically indistinguishable from reality.
The 96 part of 24/96 refers to the number of times the electronic pulse is sampled per second. In this case 96,000 times. The pulse is in the form of a wave and all waves are drawn as a curve. Digitization takes sample points on the curve and connects the space in between with straight lines. The more more sample points, the closer one can come to accurately create the original analog wave.
If one plots the wave in a coordinate plane. The x-axis represents time & the y axis represents bits. The more bits, the more finely one can vertically plot the sample point & recreate the analog wave with increasing accurately.
|Here is the best way to play this back. YOu can use FLAC front end to decode the flacs and then use either Toast (on a Mac) or Audio DVD creator both of which will burn a DVD that will play in just about any dvd player through either it's digital out (at 24/96) or it's two channel audio output.
|Another best way to play it back at 24 bits is with the cog player if you have a mac probably something else for a pc, then hook up your computer to your stereo the best way you can afford to. I use an external digital to analog converter, it works well for my 1971 Pioneer stereo which doesn't have a digital input. I was just thinking about this show yesterday and wow...Thanks!!!
|so this is 24/96 from a 1st gen 7.5 IPS reel.
you mention something about a MR coming soon to 24/96?
thanks for your great effort.
|yep masters are coming.
age and decay can pit first gen reels against masters as far as whats sonically still best. It's aLL how well they sat for 36 years...
this was shared with the possibility that it could be used for comparison by the folks sharing the masters...enjoy
|Thanks for this, just gave it a quick listen, you sure this is pitch correct? Sounds slow to me.
|nope not sure of anything.
exactly how the reels sounded and adjusted manually as best possible.
no post digital processing applied.
