Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

Two MUST reads for digital audio consumers

1-Sound On Sound Magazine

Mastering For Streaming Services:


The full article will cost you $1.50 if you are not a subscriber

Not a SINGLE mention of MQA. NONE.


2-The Recording Academy P&E Wing Hi-Res Music Prod. Recommendation

Link to PDF:


40 pages, and exactly TWO mentions of MQA, strictly in the context of streaming services. NO mention of use in production, mixing, or mastering.

For good reason. It is, contrary to lies Bob Stuart has told, it is NOT part of the production process. It is POST production DSP, at this point only for use with Tidal streaming.

The mention of MQA was the behest of Bob "dollar sign" Ludwig, who is actively seeking to capitalize on MQA.

I don't know a SINGLE recording, mixing, or mastering engineer who gives the slightest toss about it. Not a single artist either.
