Australian pianist and composer Johan Versk performed these songs as faithfully as possible with AudioDefine Records founder Cask J. Thomson at the helm, controlling the room and sound. With no fancy mastering or effect thrown on top, the result is a beautiful rendition of some of the greatest Ragtime tunes of all time.
Recorded using a Bechstein Classic 118 Piano using a stereo configuration of Audio Technica AT4051B Small Diaphragm microphones (X/Y) through a Korg MR-20005 Rack Mount DSD Recorder utilising 5.6 MHz (DSD 128) 1-Bit DSDIFF for the DSD release.
Great care has been taken to ensure that the performances featured on Masters of Rag are as close to the original sheet music as possible.

We are pleased to announce the availability of DSD 64 and DSD 256 editions of this album, in addition to the original DSD 128 recording. The additional DSD 64 and DSD 256 releases are all pure DSD created. They are not up samplings or downsamplings, for there are no PCM or DXD conversions involved in their production. They are re-modulations of the original DSD 128 encoding modulation that produced the DSD 128 releases. The sonic advantage to the new Stereo DSD 256 releases, as with all higher DSD bit rate releases, is the wider frequency passband prior to the onset of modulation noise. This results in the listener's DAC using gentler and more phase linear filters for playback of the music.
