Producers and Engineers Jared Sacks and Daan van Aalst have pooled their extensive expertise in music production and recording in DSD audio. Their goal is to put together the best system for recording and reproducing music at the highest quality with recordings in the DSD 256 (quad rate DSD) format.
Music in DSD 256, DSD 128 and DSD 64
The music on 8 Ensembles in 1 Bit is being provided in both Stereo and Multichannel sound in the recorded resolution DSD 256 (quad rate DSD). For listeners with DSD 256 systems you will enjoy hearing the music exactly as it was recorded.
We know that many listeners do not own DSD 256 converters and players today. Tom Caulfield, the Mastering Engineer at Native DSD used specially developed software from Jussi Laako (the maker of the Signalyst HQ Player software player) for the conversion from DSD 256 to DSD 128 and DSD 64.
Adding Metadata and Uploading the Files for You
Once the three sets of Stereo and Multichannel DSD files were completed, the tracks were then converted from the DFF to the DSF file format. This enables Native DSD to add metadata to the recorded tracks. Finally the DSF tracks, cover art and album booklet in Acrobat PDF format are uploaded to our server where they can be purchased and downloaded for your musical enjoyment.
We hope this brief overview provides some insight into how we recorded the music on the new 8 Ensembles in 1 Bit album. There is more information in the booklet. We think you will really love what we heard in the recording studio – and you are about to hear at home.

8 Ensembles in 1 Bit Stereo is sonically wonderful it has to be said… and anyone who is out there and saying that DSD is a bit of a fad needs to get themselves in front of a good set up capable of paying them properly and realise that this is a different level of definition.
Musically you’ve got a smattering of classical, a smidge of jazz, some acapella (Randy Newman’s Short People arranged by Maartje Meijer and performed by New Amsterdam Voices is really great) and everything has a distinct Dutch feel…it would, the musicians and singers are Dutch, but don’t let that get in the way of buying this, it really is a fab’ record and sounds great!
Highlight for me is Barcelona which sounds very live, and that’s the feel I got from the whole of this album…it sounds live, which seems to me a distinctive trait of DSD downloads… I think I may well be addicted to this format!
Fantastic Atmosphere in my headphones!

Listening to 8 Ensembles in 1 Bit from Native DSD Music in DSD256fs. Thank-you, Floor, Jared & Gang! Sounds amazing!!
Excellent variety, and a fine way to showcase Jared’s remarkable art as a producer and audio engineer. I used the Merging Technologies NADAC to do the listening…the results are exceptional. This is a brilliant set of recordings.
This is how the most amazing quality DSD gets done, if you ever wondered..
