Music Preparation for Commercial Release
This chapter will deal with the problems of taking previously recorded program segments from various sources and compiling them for commercial release. Such matters as relative transfer level, signal processing, and even identification of the earliest sources will be discussed. The compact disc, with its performance characteristics that far outclass the stereo LP record, has brought new expectations to the record reissue market, and consumers routinely expect the best transfers possible.
