    There's a download code for it when you buy the record, and you have a choice of MP3 or 24/96000 Wav.
    The recent vinyl release is a half speed cut, and the source for the cut is a recent 24/96000 ADC transfer from the analogue stereo master tape.

    I too find the vinyl a more engaging listen, and that's despite its faults.
    Yep, from the little white card in the LP sleeve. My first post was ambiguous there - sorry. Do you think the half-speed cut thing adds anything?

    It gives the cutting head an easier time of it. It doesn't get so hot, and the groove is better cut as a result.
    You need to get the eq correct when you do it - something at 80Hz translates to 40Hz at the cutter head.
    Recent half speed cuts tend to use 24/96000 digital files, because they're easier to manipulate in the digital realm.
    If you do it in the analogue domain every point of contact in the tape path can adversely affect the result.

    If I ask you what something means it's because I'm unable to understand whatever it is you're not managing to put into words very well.
    I have given up on guessing.
    If you don't like it then that's just tough shit!

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?
