Digital Masters

02000-04-14 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

I thought of something last week while we were mixing and mastering my new album for Epic Records. Record Companies usually own their artists’ “Masters”, i.e. the multitrack tape that the recordings were made on. Well, there is no original master in the digital world! The actual original master is on the hard drive of the computer the music was recorded on. Then the file is backed up and the original is erased to make space for the next recording. From now on the artists and record companies both have identical copies of the music!
