   My own private playlist: 66 instrumental
tracks, recorded live and modern mastered


( - ???  Usable for Windows system users only  ???)


Important noteUsers of other operating systems need
perhaps an "MP3-player"
 that can handle *.m3u files (playlists),
such as for Apple users for example "Foobar2000" or "VCL media player".
In the corresponding 
players - at the configuration line
provided for it in the settings, 
e.g. under "Play location" at
"Foobar2000" or for execution with a 
suitable Internet browser the
following case-sensitive entry must be made or 
taken over by "copy & paste":


http://www.xdigits.com/MyMix1.m3u


or Click herefor all tracks.



The "special thing" about all my music files - some of which were created more
than 13 years ago - is that they are "mastered" in an optimal and modern way.
This applies to the uniform sound, regardless of when and how the recordings
were made, as well as to the frequency response, dynamics, volume and sound,
which is now essentially optimized over all years of creation and independent of
the instruments and technical possibilities used, and which corresponds to the
so-called "industry standard" (e.g. for studio recordings of drums, guitars etc.).
