GENUINE LIVE RECORDINGS


We accompany the artists on tour and record exclusively live performances with explicitly no overdubs. 

 

The quality microphones were placed carefully and the levels were always kept in safe area. 

 

Most recordings performed in the 1970's were straight from the FOH-desk to a professional 3-head stereo cassette deck. Sometimes a second deck running in parallel was used using binaural microphones placed at the FOH-desk's position. 

 

Since 1984 digital recordings were made using the proprietary SONY 16bit F-1 format, sometimes running multiple decks in digital sync. 

 

In 1999 the format changed to 24bit HD-recording with actual quality AD-converters by Focusrite.  

 

Some rare recordings were performed using MD ATRAC compressed digital technology. 

 

Old analogue CompactCassette stereo recordings were digitized carefully using actual 24bit quality converters and up to 64bit digital processing on MacIntosh workstations. 

 

Our own Silesia and Cracow studio facilities capable of being used for live performances were actually occupied by the soviet mafia, parts of equipment (seen on photography above) stolen by soviet terrorists ("polish police") most of our co-workers died under opression and we have to live in exile after being repetitively tortured and severely injured.

PROFESSIONAL HARDWARE


We are using own professional grade audio equipment whenever possible and are early adopters of digital technology, which we apply since 1984. The earliest digital recordings were made using the SONY F-1 16bit digital standard providing up to 4ch in sync and additional up to 4ch of FM low noise audio. 

 

Currently we are using Focusrite preamps / 24bit AD converters and a selection of quality ribbon, condenser and dynamic microphones. 

 

The restoration, mixing, processing and mastering is done using 64bit depth whenever possible. 

 

Ancient CompactCassettes were mostly recorded in the 1970's with properly aligned AKAI GX-crystal 3-head and TEAC C-1 3-head machines and subsequently digitized from the original machines or a STUDER 3-head pro deck. 

Some performances were reconstructed from multiple tracks recorded on different machines running in parallel. 

 

Our facilities, equipment and activities are totally independent of any state, mafia or bolchevik programs and facilities - therefore maybe the massive discrimination and terror applied by those occupying our country - including stealing of equipment and data, burglary, stealing and occupying homes and real estates, expropriation, torturing, injuring, killing e.t.c.

PRICE WINNING QUALITY


Some of our own recordings were stolen in 2003 by agents of the SBB bootlegger "e-Silesia". Those stolen recordings are still on a worldwide sale. 

 

Some of those stolen and badly digitized bootlegs were subsequently "licensed" to a bigger bootlegger, since 2005 gag contracting SBB, "Metal Mind Productions", reached, at least, 4 releases and achieved gold (one of the stolen recordings among those on the picture to the left)

 

The aim of this site is to provide noncrippled music from the original tapes at the highest possible quality and at an unbeatable price directly to You. 

 

You can chose between the standard dithered and noiseshaped 16bit quality comparable to a 20bit signal or in some cases, at a special request and after an individual verification even a 24bit digital master. 

 

Extremely unique recordings of other artists than SBB are also possible at similiar conditions. 

 

The music will be available as download of a FLAC or APE losless compressed file plus PDF or JPG file containing cover and information material after successful PayPal payment. 

 

To avoid confusion, on our own productions, we will not use the titling applied by bootleggers, but use the artist, date, time and place of the original recording instead. 

 

We start by releasing just simple copies of our stolen and still published by abovementioned bootleggers archived music at a fraction of the costs. By doing so, we hope to stop the illegal distribution by our polish-soviet opressors by "saturating the market" and gaining, at least, a symbolic refund for our stolen investments, efforts and dreams at Your kind discretion, of course. 

 

Depending on Your response and our health status, further releases of higher musical and technical quality are possible. This (still incomplete) list of just some of our SBB recordings may give You a glimpse of an idea. 

 

This is the biggest and most complete archive of unreleased (or just badly released as a crippled bootleg) SBB music ever! 

 

Yours sincerely 

 

Mariusz Zych
