DIGITALLY MASTERED ANALOGUE TAPES

Actual Analogue Master Tapes, not 1st Generation Copies.

HFSLlogot.png

These tapes represent the pinnacle of transparent analogue sound.  They are single-pass  analogue master tapes.  This is only possible with digital mastering.  Analogue mastering requires at an absolute minimum a second analogue copy of the first analogue recording which doubles the analogue tape harmonics and distortions.  Favorable distortions one time, yes.  Twice, usually not.  Three times, definitely not.   Enjoy the music you love in the highest resolution possible with these single-pass analogue master tapes.

The 24 bit digital copies of our tapes capturer that wonderful harmonic of the first analogue layer and is of course, like the tape, non-limited.  This brings the dynamic analogue sound of tape to your audiophile DAC at around 1/10th the cost of analogue tape. Compared to music streaming on Tidal and Qobuz (as two examples) where there is as much as 13dB of limiting... our 24bit digital duplicates of the tapes have 0dB of limiting.
