Zone Of Alienation

This album was recorded, mixed and mastered using exclusively analog equipment and magnetic tape. The conversion to DSD was done with high quality equipment directly from the analog mastertapes. No signal processing was done in the digital domain. The DSD version is a direct transfer of the master tape, with every effort taken to ensure that it sounds as close as technically possible to the original analog recording.
