Also as it’s being played on a computer it must be expected that a lot of the depth of sound can be lost in the compression from WAV to MP3, however, as most music these days is listened through a computer or Mp3 Player, then it’s important to make things sound as good as you can in this format.
So here are a few samples (with no copyright issues) that have been recorded here at Cobham Sound using various recording methods.
