AAA 100% Analogue This LP was Remastered using Pure Analogue Components Only from the Master Tapes through to the Cutting Head
Pro-Ject - 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl - Mastered by Georg Burdeck
Limited Edition - Pressed at Pallas
Pro-Ject’s Heinz Lichtenegger always puts his money where his mouth is, and his longpromised record label (perfect for feeding the turntables he makes) kicks off with a stunner. This is a jazz feast, one LP recorded in the studio, the other live, Heinz wanting to showcase the best of analogue. The music is a super-cool, velvety-voiced collection of standards, including ‘Nature Boy’, ‘A Foggy Day’, ‘One For My Baby’ and 14 other tracks, with four of the songs appearing both live and in the studio for comparison. The results are exactly what you would expect of a music project [groan…] helmed by a militant audiophile such as Lichtenegger. This will also be offered on open-reel tape!

The entire recording chain at Studio Baumgarten was kept analogue from start to finish. There was no compression or limiters used. Instead, the sound was kept at the mercy of the careful positioning of the finely-tuned microphones which included tube mic models such as the Neumann U47 and m49a.

A Pro-Ject Records Exclusive-Release!
Studio and Live Recording at Studio Baumgarten & Pro-Ject Headquarters
We have always been dedicated to natural, acoustic music from a broad range of genres. The incomparable experience of great sound in the comfort of your own home continues to drives Pro-Ject Audio Systems, and our goal has been to spread this emotional experience to as many people as possible. For nearly 30 years we have brought true Hi-Fi stereo at an affordable price to hundreds of thousands of customers – so they can enjoy that experience. But what about the available recordings?
From time-to-time we invite great musicians to perform in our company headquarters in Mistelbach, Austria. We have always been playing with the idea to record these sessions, but only using real analogue tape with reduced microphoning, captured live in true stereo with no compression or extensive editing – just live. One of the problems with this idea is that very few musicians are willing or able to record in such an environment, where no cuts and corrections are possible. That’s a lot of pressure for any recording artist.
By pure coincidence and great luck, CEO Heinz Lichtenegger has learned that Austria’s own 7RAY is not only a great singer and musician, but also a keen audiophile. So it was amazing to find that he was immediately enthusiastic about the idea. Working with 7RAY we developed a concept to make both a special studio album (and by special, we mean special – learn more in the text), and a live recording direct from our company headquarters; giving you the ability to hear a direct comparison of recording styles.
Please enjoy this wonderful audiophile experiment and experience the true emotion of quality music!
