In recognition of the Channel Classics release of the Budapest Festival Orchestra Mahler Symphony No.3 recording, (April 28)  NativeDSD presents a session outtake of the Movement No.1 beginning.  This clip was separately recorded using a natural perspective minimalist five microphone ITU alignment for surround in DSD256, and provides a unique insight to the collaborative effort of the session recording process. The original five channel raw DSD256 recording was also converted to, and available in 5.0 DSD128, DSD64, and DXD, and further mixed to stereo in the above four format bit and sample rates.
The Mahler 3 recording took place in the Budapest Bella Bartok National Concert Hall in two sessions: March 7, 2016, and March 27-29, 2016.  This clip was from Take 2 of the 1st Movement, after a control room review of Take 1 with conductor Ivan Fischer, producer/recording engineer Jared Sacks, and several orchestra principles. In that audition, the tonal character of the bass drum at the movement beginning was discussed, and changes proposed for Take 2.

What’s presented is an unedited DSD256 recorded session excerpt optimized for 5.0 surround sound by microphone selection and placement. It was later converted to the other DSD bit rates, and additionally mixed to 2.0 channel for stereo delivery. It’s a backstage peek into a session recording of a major orchestra.
