There is so much fundamentally wrong with the setup in their recording that it's unreal - both sadly depressing and vaguely irritating in its ineptitude, especially when people who don't know any better will see this and could take it as an example of good practice - and sadly everything that one would expect from such a bunch of basic errors is manifest in the recording.
The video element isn't bad; pity about the sound. A shame really as the product itself is probably ok and the quartet definitely deserved better! Focusrite - what were you thinking?! :protest:
Yes to see the skill, knowledge and dedication of the young musicians and then by contrast that of the onsite audio people is indeed depressing.
If only the latter had consulted much more experienced audio recording people, before going public, this could have been avoided.
