That is certainly part of the story. But, to date it has not been difficult differentiating between source and reproduction distortion, seemingly because the acoustic signatures are highly distinctive.

There is a worrying trend, though. More recent recordings show a higher level of processing 'interference' on one hand, and sloppiness on the other: popular tracks are largely overcooked, but are still generally well done in the context of the sort of sound they're aiming for; but, a number of the quite recent classical recordings I've heard are disturbing ... they show a lack of consistency of sound from track to track, and overall a falling in the standard of care taken - completely unnecessary considering the level of development of studio equipment ...

exactly, have you read it SY? stands for QUantum Singelton Processor. Also the Planck Dive and more fully explored in the full novel Schild's Ladder

basically the qusp is a quantum computer used as a vessel to store and 'run' a personality or AI

i'm just thankful you were able to spell it/see it correctly Scott, most people insert a second imaginary vowel.

SY: your nick is impossible to reuse or spell in a juvenile manner, damn you!

Of course.

Fortunately, I don't have initials that can be made into something insulting.
