The Retro Recordist – The Beauty of MiniDisc Recording is a subsidiary blog to The Field Recordist
This blog concentrates on a single theme; that of recording with the inimitable MiniDisc Walkman Recorder (1992-2011).
MiniDiscs have in many ways a similar appeal to the longstanding vinyl disc, or record. They are physical, tactile items; have a lovely warm, and unique sound signature of their own; they are easily managed and capable of being played in a relatively simple manner without the need for internet or computer-based systems.
Recordings made on MiniDiscs approach CD quality, and are truly magical.
