Upsetting Fact?

 

Great mastered vinyl records and digital files

have been analyzed for 7 years

They musically don't compare

 

 

Philosophy

 

Advanced digital playback and equipments don't cancel the gap

The challenge is to focus on the digital data itself

and find out a global mastering approach as a solution

 

I developed a merging technique in audio processing dedicated to

- shiftback 'missing and hidden' informations

- remove the remaining digital 'fingerprint'

 

Over 50 referent records including 45rpm and half-speed mastered vinyls

were used to improve the technique until they musically compare

 

 

RootMasterSystem

 

I: 16bit/44kHz or better

130 operations by computing with audio software

New audio signal treatment

O: RM (PCM and DSD)

 

STEP 1

Back to the Roots

 

First improvements based on results showing that RM

can return digital track to a significant copy of

an original analog recording of the musical event

 

STEP 2

Towards Higher Quality

 

The ultimate goal for listeners is achieved beyond the musical limitations of vinyls

(hidden detail under surface noise, distortion, 'monoed' bass, end side compression...)

After long research, second improvements can achieve a cutting edge musical experience,

relying on 6 key components as shown on the drawing below

 

STEP 3

RootMasterSpirit

 

 Anew approach to acoustic space and imaging

The final sound quality of that hybrid architecture combines

              - removed digital and analog compromises
        - added benefits of those two formats

Widescreen Dynamics

Far more 'realism', p to f becomes pp to ff

Like 45s vinyl records, RM can enhance the dynamic range,

dramatically reversing the effects of compression

 

 

Flexible Soundstage

A full sound is able to radiate beyond the area of the speakers

But also subtle details return vivid (and not boosted)

RM can fill/empty the room and get you at an orchestral performance

 

 

Advanced Stereo Imaging

Left, middle and right locations are redefined

to generate more distinctive informations in the whole room

enabling a continuous and realistic spatial distribution

 

 

Sound Layers with 3D Transparency

Three dimensional enveloping sound,

outstanding depth and clarity are the most complex achievement

Digital can meet the 'analog spirit'

 

 

Maximum Transient Fluidity

RM can simulate the analog's signal liquidity

through complex digital conversions up to DSD2048

and with a technique to reduce the digital sounding aspects

 

 

Intelligent Balance

Human perception of frequencies/level changes is not linear

Spectrum balance and sound dynamic were elaborated

after psycho acoustic tests up to 100kHz, master tape and live concerts
