Mathias Grassow - Himavat (2015 Special Edition)



This limited and remastered 2015 version of "Himavat" comes as an Eco Digipak with completely new and impressive artwork by Jesse Harrison. With respect to individual preferences, we offer 2 different audio versions of this album:

:: Original Version - this is the pure 1:1 version based on the 1998 release.

:: 2015 Version - for this version we re-transfered the original DAT Tape to a hard drive - this time in 32 Bit High Resolution. Before it was recorded onto the drive, we ran the file through several analogue instruments to improve the depth and stereo image of the file, because for the old release the original DAT wasn´t properly transfered and it was quite narrow-sounding (left-right and front-back). We didn´t apply any compression/maximizing on it, nor did we use any other digital effects afterwards. The main focus was to profit from the warm sound of full analogue equipment to improve the sound quality and to maintain a higher audio resolution before the recording went on the CD, always with the aim to preserve Mathias´ original recording.

The difference is clearly audible on any good speaker or headphone setup - very likely you will find that the new version sounds much more "open/spacious" and has more "depth" – meaning that all the sounds are better focused on the whole axis (left-right and front-back). In other words, you may feel that the "2015 Version" is more three-dimensional, while the "Original Version" seems more two-dimensional.

To help you find your preferred version, we have included 2 different players in order to allow quick comparisons between them. For immediate playing, especially with slower broadband connections, we suggest buffering the tracks first for a while. This can be done by starting and pausing / stopping each track after a few seconds.
