Old Jun 11th, 2009, 03:53 AM        Analog and it's fate
What a shame that analog can not seem to thrive in a digital world. The reason why I am paying 1k to see My Bloody Valentine in New Jersey is because they blew me the fuck away. They only play in analog and it really made the difference. If a digital set up played that loud, the crisp would have been choppy. Mix masters still rub vinyl, but that wont keep it afloat. We are gonna lose something organic about the way we hear music, watch films, and view photographs.

I'm all about pushing digital to it's limits, but I will always miss the warmth analog provides.

I wish everyone had a chance to listen to Sabbath's N.I.B. on wax.

The only place where it really makes a difference is in sound. In practical terms, at least.

I mean, analog photos maintain a certain aesthetic and people will like it as they always did, but reallistically, it's not the best quality for the masses. Analog will be the king of audio for a long time, methinks, and no amount of bitrates can change that.

If you can tell the difference between digital and analog your either full of shit or your stereo is inferior. All sound must be amplified by an ANALOG device. Theres no such thing as an all digital amplifier, it just doesn't work that way. In fact, most consumer grade audio equipment is based on the same 20 pin microchip called the TDAxxxx (x would be the application number). If you open anyhting in your home I can guarantee you will find shitloads of this same basic chip.

The problem is that the source is digital.

Yeah, it's all speakers, but the difference between a .mp3 and a 45 is definitely noticeable.

I think it's worth drawing a distinction between different digital formats. MP3 is a compressed format designed for portability rather than quality. The way it works is, among other things, to cut off the high and low end of the spectrum which is why some people notice it lacking the range of analogue media. Other digital formats are loss-less which should mean they retain the full range of sounds present in the original (or at least those perceivable to the human ear).

Of course if you're talking about the source of the music - the recording equipment - then I have nothing constructive to add.

Actually, since I don't drive or leave the house. I prefer my old tapes and vinyl. But if I was ever on the move again, I would settle for this new dumbed down form of sound.

I'm too young to know what vinyl sounds like but I'm intrigued. My dad has basicly half our basement full of records but doesnt let me go near them because he thinks I'll fuck them up. Like how my mom destroyed part of his 30-year old easyriders collection.

Hangie: I belive you said your pop is an old skate punk, I'm sure he would be willing to play N.I.B. for you and might even let you drink your first beer.

Why don't you drive or leave the house?

He's dying an agonizing death. Or perhaps something worse than death, if I remember correctly.

Well, I don't drive because I don't actually have a need to and I owe 4000 dollars to get my license back as well, and I don't leave the house because this little town 2 hours above LA has nothing to do. I'll go to shows and amusement parks and sometimes the gun range, but I don't work so I really don't need a car.

You should fix all that before it's too late.
