MASTERING: the Royal Parks

The last few evenings have been spent with Dan Arnott and Tearlach Wales from Melbourne band "the Royal Parks" mastering their album, with tracks produced by Noah Georgeson. A lush and incredibly emotive backdrop for some absolutely beautiful vocals makes this album a perfect candidate for the warmth and detailed image produced by my system here at ToKwerX. All analogue processing was recaptured in digital using the glorious DSD format @ 5.6MHz sample rate. Once again the Harrison 32C EQ's were the final element in the signal path, but the ability to drive the analogue stereo buss harder on the Audient SUMO just as one would on a console master buss allowed for some beautifully rich and subtle saturation before the final capture into DSD.
