Since there are so many good mastering-minded minds tuned into this site, I thought there should be a thread about the Plangent Process since it is being so highly touted. Reading through some of the literature found here on their website they are saying "The result of this novel state of the art DSP is a stunning stability and transparency previously unheard from these classic sources - even surpassing the raw playback directly from the analog source." That is to say, their processed digital version sounds better than the original tape itself. My technical skills are limited, but as I understand the process their software locks onto the test tones on the tape. As the tones fluctuate, even minutely, their software determines what the tone "should have done" and processes the underlying musical information accordingly. This is definitely in the realm of heavy digital processing and quite far from the purist approach that Steve has described with regard to his work. Wondering what the minds here think about it.
