      Like Kingrex said the digital version of that analog master is nice, at 2xHD we did releaded also in DSD256.

      That two tracks recording done by MaplesShade with pure stereo technic is unique and when you hear it on analog tape Shirley Horn is back with us again!

      Here a picture of or custom Nagra tube set up at 2xHD to do the copy of the master one by one.

        I have a IV-S with QGB that I use primarily for location recording, and a T-Audio for playback and editing. I have wired the playback head of the TA directly out to my hard wired Vacuum State RTP-3C or to a King Cello tape head preamp. For making dubs, I use the TA for playback to record with the IV-S, which is the opposite of what you do. Have you tried this combination ? The native playback electronics of the IV-S is cursory, probably meant to be for monitoring rather than serious playback. The recording electronics is very good. Ideally, two TAs would be perfect but these are rare beasts. I am thinking about getting a Telefunken M21 for dubbing. These workhorses are very reliable.

        The Mapleshade deck is a Sony TC-880-2 customized, I assume by Pierre Sprey. It had its own EQ set up rather than the standard NAB or IEC. The Sony is a fine machine.

      Hi,

      Does anyone has 'personaly' listened to the 2xHD Tapes of Shirley Horn Softly?

      Looks very attractive since there are not many famous jazz singer music on tapes...

      Any information about the sound presentation and sounding would be appreciated

      Thanks.

        First, don't waste your money on ORG's Infrasonic mastered Softly LP release. I have no idea what Infrasonic did but it's a travesty. I wonder if Infrasonic even used the master tape or whether the LP was cut from a digital copy. Not even a reasonable facsimile of the original tape. The LP is totally washed out sounding and what happened to the low end. Plus the album just sounds thin and anemic. It pales next to the tape.

        Now the tape. It's a bit different sounding than say Pierre's Clifford Jordan tape that Jonathan remastered. Let me get my biggest issue with Softly out of the way first. The first couple of tracks are a transferred a little lower because the last three songs are extremely dynamic. The other thing about Pierre's recordings is that they aren't necessarily the most detailed but they are definitely very smooth, musical and easy on the ears.

        Softly is definitely a very enjoyable tape and sure you will enjoy Shirley's performance.

        I wish Jonathan or Rene could access more of Pierre's tapes since there's definitely a few other tapes that were only ever issued on CD.

          I second this - “I wish Jonathan or Rene could access more of Pierre's tapes since there's definitely a few other tapes...”

        Hi there,

        I received my copy of Shirley Horn Softly last week from René.
        This is a great tape. Music is very enjoyable, soft and 'real' at the same time.
        Voice of Shirley is gorgeous. ..
        A must have for vocal jazz lovers !
