Before/After

I’ve been yammering on about the improved mixes on Positive (2010). But as they say, “the proof is in the pudding.” Now why they put the proof there, I’ll never understand. But one thing the web makes easy to do, and savvy shoppers expect, is the old ‘side by side comparison.’ And I’m marketing to a savvy bunch, right? So it seems a good marketing ploy to provide this functionality.

Below is a simple ‘before and after’ with the snippets from old Positive on the left, in the role of dumpy Fred Flintstone, and Positive (2010) on the right, preening like Charles Atlas on a sunny day at the beach. Or so we hope.

For once I’ll try and let these results speak for themselves and not blather on about specific details. In some songs, the changes are subtle. In others, quite profound.

However, I will make a general comment that may seem underwhelming, but is crucial to my enjoyment of this sort of music. If there is one major, overall improvement to the new record, I would suggest that it’s something that is missing from Positive (2010) rather than what was added. Over the years, whenever I was forced to listen to Positive for various reasons, I found myself constantly reaching for the volume knob. My hand reflexes told the tale—way too many uneven spots where something was momentarily too loud or too soft. Well mixed records don’t do this. I started feeling good about the new mixes the day I could put in a test CD, head down the highway, and keep both hands on the wheel, like a good driver ought to.
