I didn't lock that thread, and i think you can't ban people straight away because its not fair, there has to be a process. That said, if some posters carry on as they are, it won't take long for them to leave on their own or get banned

I locked it until I could figure out who it was, obviously Jesslem. He's been banned again, and the thread unlocked.
I make music as Forsaken, you can DL all my unreleased (and a couple released) bits here.

i love vinyl as much as the next guy, but the sound quality difference is 99% of the time placebo.

prove me wrong? the only quantifiable difference in quality comes from the master, the rest is all placebo

well the tune gets made on a computer and it's put on a record from a digital file, so the only change in the sound is going to be the mastering job and perceived warmness from surface noise, or am i missing something

whaaat?

The freq spectrum is entirely different so everything else is definitely not placebo, eventhough there's a point that I like in there.

An mp3 is cut off in the highs at a point where we can stil hear even if we're not a dog. I think human hearing goes up to 20 and it's cut at 16 or something.

A vinyl is basicly alive

They defo sound better man. If you listen very carefully when playing a record, you'll hear a very faint noise of somebody explaining over and over again why vinyl is better.

AFAIK, that doesn't happen with digital.

but i have shit needles on shit decks and a lot of crackly as fuck tunes so the sound's never really been a big element for me

Sorry mate I can't cite you any numbers. I remember when dubstep was mainly a vinyl and acetate based genre, and first hearing digital releases it didn't sound right at all. Vinyl has a physicality and presence, especially in the lowend/midrange that digital just doesn't.
Basically, A/B the same tune on a decent set of speakers with a vinyl and a wav and let us know what you think.
And to be clear, I've never been a vinyl purist either, I have nothing against CDJs but to say the sound of vinyl is a placebo is frankly ridiculous :lol:

hubb wrote:A vinyl is basicly alive
This. the sound is being generated mechanically in real time, it anchors the sound in a physical space, like an instrument. It's the same with acetate (which doesn't get a lot of mastering at all.)


That said, when vinyl sounds bad it sounds BAAAAAAD. You're always going to get a bad press every now and again. And a lot of people don't look after their records, but that's another story.

I moved country a year ago, didn't bring my records with me. After playing purely digital for the last year, I've come to miss be able to flick through my bag and organizing a set as I go along. Playing USB/Serato always feels quite random for me - flicking through actual records just makes things seem to flow easier. It's hard to explain, if anyone's used both formats a lot you'll know what I mean. And the whole experience is generally less sterile and more enjoyable.
