Because of the fidelity to the original sound, many artists and
audiophiles prefer analog because of the warmth and texture of the
sound that they attribute to the full bandwidth from the physical
imprintation of the sound. The only problem is that analog
recording can be expensive, whereas digital is relatively cheap.
Digital recording equipment is not only cheaper, but extremely
versatile and can last indefinitely. Digital lets artists record
pretty much wherever they want, as long as they have a laptop with
some recording software, headphones, microphones, and an audio
interface. But all of this comes at a price as digital recordings
are often thought to be a little colder or more technical in their
sound because they are an approximation through numbers.
