Thanks! I'm glad you liked this music. I tell you, it has a tough left hand passage work part! Not my forte, but once in awhile I undertake such a challenge to try to better my playing in the LH, although I don't know if I make any progress or not
. It is hard for an old dog to learn new tricks.
I agree that the sound of the Roland is about the same as the old Korg. Like you, I attribute that to using the same Earthworks TC-20 mics. I gave up on their 85 page owner's manual and figured things out intuitively for myself. I tried their Auto Sens automatic gauging of the input sound level. That almost blasted me off the bench! My effort at a manual setting resulted in the level being too soft, so I had to increase the to increase amplitude using the editor. In the coming days I'm going to use some more reliable trial and error to do a manual setting to optimize it. I try to set the level so that it falls pretty much at the 12:00 noon position on the listener's dial. That way I don't blast the headphones off their heads! I imagine they appreciate it.
On your question, I went with 16 bit sampling (because the converter didn't offer 24 bit which I would have preferred), sample bit of 44.1kHz as we had discussed, and a bitrate of 192Kbps. I'm happy with the results of those choices.
By the way, I can totally ignore the low cut switch and the limiter switch on the Roland. The TC-20 mics have great headroom which automatically solves the problem.
I noticed that the Dohnanyi "Postludium" which is in the archive has the paperclip symbol on it. Just an error. I wrote a pm to Monica asking for her help with that one.
Guess that's it for now.
