After a brief discussion with a fellow robot, robot told me he thinks that warm is a malarky term. Let me go back a little and tell you how we came upon this. Some of my metalhead buddies say that they only record analog to tape- citing that there is a certain warmth that cannot be achieved with computers. Now, robot says... thats BS, because what does warm mean? I must admit, i have heard the term used over and over again, but I am still unclear on the exact definition.
