  1. In my opinion... Beatles Revolver is one of my favorite records. The strings on Eleanor Rigby are some of the best sounding strings I've heard. And as far as digital goes, Revolver was one of the first CDs I bought. I had never heard the background vocals on I'm only sleeping until I got the CD. I certainly didn't think the CD sounded worse than the vinyl. Revolver came out in 1966. Another favorite record is Axis Bold As Love. Although the musical performance is awesome and a few of the studio tricks are cool, I think Axis is incredibly poorly recorded. Axis came out a year after Revolver and as far as I know, they used an 8 track recorder. Why does Revolver sound better? My guess is the engineers weren't stoned and monitoring the mixes at 110 dB. There is nothing wrong with digital. What I've found is that analog tape applies multi-band compression and harmonic distortion, and a lot of engineers who don't really understand what's happening, like that effect. Same with outboard gear. Distortion. And if that's the sound you want and you know how to get it, you can do so with digital. Zip
  2. Wow, three pages already! I didn't expect that. As I read through the replies I'm pretty sure nobody here has actually listened in detail to the two tracks. I tried to... If it's a direct lift of another recording that should be easy enough to prove. If it "sounds like" the original track that's a different standard. I'm just glad I copyrighted the 12 bar blues progression years ago. Zip
  3. I'll admit it, I like to look at Katy Perry (she was awesome in the banned Sesame Street video). The little bit of her music I've heard I can not stand. But apparently she's been sued for stealing a "beat" from a Christian rapper and the jury decided on behalf of the rapper. Lotsa money is about to change hands. I read the article and was curious about the stolen beat. I listened to both tracks and what I hear is "boom boom clap" for both songs. What? If you care here's a link to the CNN page where both music vids are posted. Am I missing something? What is in the rap song that has been stolen for the Perry song? https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/30/entertainment/katy-perry-dark-horse-verdict/index.html And if you don't listen to the tracks I don't blame ya a bit!

  4. https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/30/entertainment/taylor-swift-scooter-braun-songs/index.html I don't like Taylor Swift music but I respect the person/artist. I certainly respect her fans who do like the music. Like so many others, she signed a deal that ended up with her losing ownership of what she created. The devil's bargain. If she hadn't signed the deal maybe she would not have made it big? The Music Business. Zip
