After with our further developed audio mastering facility a new level of cleanliness in the digital sound achieved, the pressed CD-s arrived too. First reaction of the composer:

'- Here is the long awaited CD, which can be described as a fluke. The very large number of vocal parts come with SDG-master technology by the naturailty filling out the whole soundfield. Those passages that sounded imperfect for various reasons now seem as swept off the table, and they contribute to the overall impression is of cantatas by significantly higher level than without SDG-master technology. What sounded like a church sounds before, sounds now souveraine as from a cathedral! "

For the best possible signal quality when playing a CD-s, it is very important how fast the change of 0 to 1 and can be carried back. What in the electronic signal appears as a rectangle that is to be shown on the disc as perfectly as possible, so as close as possible to the 90 degree slope to be approached. This quality we can achieve at the glass disc is CD-1284pressed on CD-s not possible, because the mold can be removed from the disc, where steep slopes prevent this. The cycle times are longer, the discs are more expensive. However, when we go from the normal 45 degrees towards 90 degrees, such as the now 60 degrees out, which will reduce the jitter in audio CDs, which is very good audible wiederrum. This pressure we have with the same "Classical ... World Music, by Heinrich Swiss, CD-1284 "made, which is published by Swiss music label VDE-Gallo.
