I’m recording from the Sony (WMD6C) line out into the line in of a Tascam DR100mkIII at 24/192 .WAV dual ADC.
Then moving the files to my laptop for the AnalogRytm and general music files.
Listening to the files at that resolution with my A&K AK320 (dual DAC) it’s exactly the same as the tape. There’s the soft noise layer, a kind of LPF effect, and pushing the recording level keeps it’s character (more an overdrive effect rather than distortion).
However, when it gets dumbed down for the AnalogRytm mkI, it has a hint of the bit reduction effect.So I’m going to try recording at 16/44 next time to see if it sounds clearer on the AnalogRytm. I didn’t notice it when I recorded directly from instrument to digital to AR, but I think what I’m hearing is that overdrive vibe being turned into distortion?
