THE DALI CD VOL. 5
- It is no secret among audiophile music lovers that standards for the sound quality of new releases are in steady decline. The sound is getting more and more compressed and loud, which means that dynamic contrasts and air are largely absent and in turn removes dynamics peaks with pauses and breathing space for the ears. As compression technologies are getting increasingly advanced along with the increased use of microscopic loudspeaker systems in headphones, tablets and PC’s, the goal of producing the loudest mix seems to become ever more vital for all parties in the music industry. It has simply become common practice. However, it has now reached a point where studio engineers are taking less and less pride and pleasure in producing quality sound. It no longer matters, and our goal is therefore to reverse this trend.
- This DALI release has been produced with the above in mind – with focus on using as little compression as possible and on high quality sound. As always, the purpose of this release is to present a wide ranging musical selection to inspire music lovers to take more pleasure in repeated listening to fine performances and outstanding sound production.
- The DALI Album Vol. 5 is launched both as a CD and a LP. It is a unique release, consisting exclusively of new recordings or re-recorded tracks by some of Denmark’s best artists, i.e., recorded versions of music not otherwise available in the marketplace, whether online or off. Everyone has signed on under the “Good Sound” banner and joined us in the studio to record their tracks from scratch.
The dogma was simple: to create music with nerve, presence and authenticity with minimal use (if any) of compression and Auto-Tune – with all instruments, lead vocals and backing vocals recorded on the spot.
