Re: MD master

MD ATRAC is obsolete.

That is the reason.

Sony dropped ATRAC, seeing no reason to continue making and supporting lossy audio recorders. ATRAC was a necessary evil for many years to get digital recordings due to technology limitations (mostly financial, really).

As was just said, we have no rule banning MD recorders, only MD Recordings made using ATRAC compression. One of the later MD models that records linear audio to WAV can still be used to record shows to seed at TTD.

Lossy, data-compressed audio is not allowed here.
The exception is ALL ATRAC recordings made before 1/1/2008 (2 years ago).
