Maybe that was the film. Look, I don't want to critcize Leinsdorf, maybe once the musicians and the conductor were confronted with the one take through to the end nature of the process it affected the result. The lable is clearly more interested in their sonic "thing".

I can hardly imagine that a professional orchestra would find playing anything in one take a daunting task.

In the context of making a recording I don't know. I have seen stories of several takes being spliced together for the best parts of each. We are possibly over thinking this issue, what's there is there nontheless.

For the record, there is something wrong with Ed Simon's diagram. What is it?

Shouldn't the + Input see approx. the same impedance as the - Input, in case of a bipolar Op Amp?

Makes you wonder why there are so few "live" orchestral recordings. It's not that it's daunting, it's that a recording is an archival document, not a one-off performance. Add in the strict admonition to hit exactly the volumes you did at the run-through, NEVER exceeding them by even a little and what you have is a safe, sterile, performance, professionally executed, but taking no chances and not "going" with the feeling. Multiply that times 100 (or so) musicians.

Just curious, have there ever been any D2D orchestral performances that were exciting? Within the genres I favor, I can't think of any jazz D2Ds that I'd listen to more than once.
