yes it is true that pop artist have an Ideal sound that they think they
must have on playing back of their recording, even if they do not
actually emote such a a sound.
I am working with an old time string band who seem to think that they
should sound like the 78's they listen to even though their sound when
playing, practice or stage show, does not have that "sound".
