TECH TESTS

tech_tests.jpg

Gear demos and various technical testings. All recordings 24bit 96kHz, normalized to -22 LUFS (the LUFS algorithm takes into account differing frequencies and dynamics in adjusting recordings to equal perceived loudness).

Set the sample rate of your D/A converter to 96kHz, line up the files in a DAW, enable solo, and toggle between them to listen to the differences. See the text file in the download for information on the signal chain.
