Jae Sinnett: Has anyone noticed this 5-10 second delay at the beginning
of ECM recordings? Not sure of the purpose or why it happens. Is it
something that's happening in the mastering process or is it a conscious
choice? . Perhaps someone can explain this......Five seconds of dead air can
seem like an eternity in radio.
ECM cds have sent me quickly scanning the board to see what button I didn't
have pushed. ECM is the only one that has this delay and to confuse things
even more, every so often, a ECM cd will not have the delay. I'm always
prepared, and will hit the play button early, but you never know how early.
I too would love to know why they do this. I am sure it is intentional.
