Dr. M.T. "Mike" Resch a.k.a. "MTR"

New MTR Self Portrait

This New Self Portrait was created with Corel PaintShop Pro X9 (64 bit) Image Editing Software. It is from a Photograph I took with my HP 3110 Webcam that I use for Skype in the kitchen of our home with a sinkful of dirty dishes and the stove with pots & pans on it in the background (which my wife hates for people to see). I removed the background digitally in this background layer, then I touched it up a little bit (OK maybe a lot) to take the bags out from under my eyes, and retouched my hair and face to make them look younger. Then I created another layer with a green-to-blue Gradient Fill and placed it under the background layer which is transparent where I erased the background so that it would show through like a grassy field blending into a blue sky. Then I added a "Frame" as the top-most layer to make the picture look "artsy". I use a Posterized version of this New Self Portrait (without the "Frame") as my Header Picture on my Twitter Account, MTR (@MikeResch). MTR

The great thing about 24 bit Digital Audio is that it enables the ordinary person with a PC to achieve "Studio Quality" Sound for a relatively Modest investment of from $77 to $145 for a 24 bit Sound Card which comes in three basic formats: PCI Internal, PCI-Express Internal, or USB External. Put quite simply, a Bit Rate of 4608 kbps is around three times the Bit Rate of Commercial CDs which is 1411 kbps, which is a lot more information being transmitted to your ears, and a Sample Size of 24 bit allows a Frequency Response of from 0 Hz to 48 kHz, greatly exceeding the Frequency Response of from 0 Hz to 24 kHz inherent in 16 bit Sound. This allows the delivery of Stunning Highs in the Treble Range and Amazing Lows in the Bass Range that a person can "feel", even when listening on a good set of Headphones. There is a feeling of a real "Presence" in the Music that makes it sound like the Artists are playing and singing right in front of you, that CD quality Music lacks. Part of my Music Ministry is to help an ordinary person to experience the Excitement and Inspiration of Christian Contemporary Music available from 24 bit Music for Free. Below this Text are Links to Download my Album in three different Formats: AIFF 24 bit 96 kHz 4608 kbps, AIFF 16 bit 44.1 kHz 1411 kbps, and MP3 44.1 kHz 320 kbps. The second and third Formats mentioned can be played on any PC that is able to play Commercial CDs without any additional equipment. Only the first Format requires a 24 bit Sound Subsystem on your PC, resulting in an impressive gain in sound quality. I will now give you some Links to typical 24 bit cards in each of the three categories available. Remember, they're just Examples of 24 bit cards and where to obtain them. I encourage you to search on the Web for other cards that might be more to your liking. My first Example, a 24 bit PCI Internal card is a 24 bit Creative SB X-Fi PCI Elite Pro Sound Card available at NewEgg for around $145 plus Shipping and any Salex Tax due. This is the Card I have installed in my PC named "Blackbird". I have nothing but praise for this Device, as its Drivers written in 2015 for Windows 10 work in my PC running an Experimental Build of Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) Version 1709, which just became available to the general public on 10/17/17. I used that Card to Digitally Record Pandora One's Christian Contemporary Radio right off the Web, and Conver Pandora's measely Bit Rate of 192 kbps into 4608 kbps on-the-fly using the Miracle of Hardware Digital Signal Processing on the Card. Enough said about that. the Second Option, a 24 bit PCI-Express Internal Card is a 24 bit ASUS PCI-Express XONAR_DX, available at Amazon for around $91 plus Shipping and any Sales Tax due. I don't have any Personal Experience with this Card, but it has generally good reviews and information about getting Drivers in the Product Review and Questions Answered section for it on the Amazon Website. The third Example, a 24 bit USB External Sound Card is popular for MAC owners, because their Motherboards are not equipped with extra slots, so they must be content using a USB 2.0 Port to accomplish the Task. The best example I found on the Web is a 24 bit Sewell Direct Soundbox Externa Card available on Amazon for around $77 plus Shipping and any Sales Tax due. this Box is powered by the USB 2.0 Port it plugs into, and has generally good reviews on the Amazon Website. It has Drivers available for different "Flavors" of Windows as well as OSX. I don't "drive" a MAC so I don't have any Personal knowledge of how acceptible this Card is on a PC running OSX. Many people reported it was very good as a Plug & Play device on PCs running Windows. Well, that's about all I have to say on this subject, except that all three Formats of the Audio Files for the Album are designed to be able to be successfully imported into "iTunes" as a Free Player, and they all sound pretty good on "iTunes" as opposed to the Player I use called "GoldWave v. 6.31", which is a 64 bit app designed to run on Windows 7 (64 bit) or higher, and which is designed to accomodate the newest Version of Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) Version 1709. It is a Digital Audio Player & Editor with a hefty amount of capabilities which far exceeds "iTunes" capabilities, except that it costs $15 per year to Lease it or $45 to Purchase a Lifetime License & Free Upgrades. It performs better than "iTunes" on playing all sorts of Digital Audio Files. There is a Link elsewhere on this Website, Resch.com where your can Download a fully functiong copy that works for a certain number of operations, then asks whether you want to Lease it or Purchase it. I highly recommend it for Playing 24 bit Digital Audio. Also, instead of a "Visualizer" like "iTunes" has it has Real-Time Spectrum Analysis Graphs in Color which show the Frequency vs. Amplitude of each Channel while you are Listening to the Music which I find to be very Entertaining to watch and also very Informative about the "Nature" of the Music. So below this Text you will find Links to Files stored on one of my Google Drives that give you access to the Audio Files, the Album Art for use in "itunes" and Song Lists in .jpg and .pdf Format that give you a reference to which Track is playing by virtue of the Total Playing Time in Dark Blue Color of when each Track starts Playing. One other note: For the MP3 File if you Rt+Clk the Link and Open in a New Tab, it takes you to a Download Page that has an MP3 Player Built in, so that you can Listen to what the Album sounds like before Downloading anything. It's a Neat little "Extra" I Discovered while checking to see if all of the Links worked like I Programmed the HTML Code to do. I have many other Albums like this in varying states of completion, so if you like this Music be sure to Let Me Know using the "Contact MTR" Mailto: feature in "Contact Information".

In the early evening of August 25th, 2017 I logged in to my Pandora One Christian Contemporary Radio station with my computer, "Blackbird", which has a Studio Quality "Creative SB X-Fi" PCI sound card in it ready to record with my GoldWave v. 6.30 (64 bit) digital audio recording and editing software also ready and qued up for recording. Pandora One's AI Engine then fed me 20 Tracks in a row based on my previous "Thumbs-up" responses to around 150 Tracks that I had given positive responses to previously. These are the same 20 Tracks that are listed above on the PDF. I recorded all 20 in a row without knowing ahead of time what was going to come up for listening. The actual Bit Rate for the Sound Stream on Pandora One is only 192 kbps but I was recording at 3072 kbps to obtain a "Studio Quality" recording regardless of the actual Bit Rate. The AIFF sound files were then "corrected" for the defective Frequency Response of the 192 kbps Sound Stream by then converting the 16 bit waveforms to 24 bit and "correcting" the waveforms at 24 bit resolution with a Bit Rate of 4608 kbps to retain the "corrections" in the Highest Octave of my Digital Equalizer. The details are beyond the scope of this note. After "cleaning up" these recorded "Chosen" wave-forms I uploaded them to this Site to produce a Great Sounding Compilation of the best Artists and Groups recording today in the Christian Contemporary Genre. This Album, "Christian Contemporary V" is yours for the taking. Enjoy previewing the Tracks to see if you like any of the various Styles and Messages presented in these 20 Tracks. If you like, you may download individual Tracks if you only like one, but be reminded that I am only allowed 200 Free Downloads a Month by Bandcamp.com, beginning on the 16th of each Month, so downloading the whole album only counts as a Single Download against my Monthly Quota. Enjoy Listening to these Songs for Free as my Gift from me to you. Believe me, after almost 50 years in Music Ministry it is a Labor of Love to produce Albums like this on my Bandcamp site for Christians to enjoy. Peace Be With You. MTR

p.s. - Downloading the Album includes a Bonus Item titled: "Christian Contemporary V Song List.pdf" shown above with a numbered list of: Artist and Group Names, Track Titles, Album Titles & Playing Time for your convenience. This document is also view-able on Resch.com Also, please Download in AIFF Format in order to retain all of the Technology Engineered into the sound files with Digital Processing performed on the waveforms for Studio Quality Audio in Playback.

The Album immediately above this text is called an Embedded Album because it is Embedded in this Website and it is connected to my Bandcamp Site: MichaelResch.Bandcamp.com. You should know that this Album is identical to my Album on iTunes except that it has updated Album Art and Audio Files Which are Superior to the Audio Files used in making Commercial CDs for you to Download as you Choose. More about that Later. You can do several things with it. You can Play the Entire Album by Clicking on the Play Button on the Black Square on the Front of the Embedded Album. You can Listen to Individual Tracks by Clicking on the Track Name. You can Pause the Playing of any Track by Clicking the Pause Symbol on the Black Square on the Front of the Embedded Album. Alternatively, you can go to my Bandcamp Site for that Album by Right-Clicking the Title of the Album on Bandcamp (which is a Hyperlink): A Cup of Cold Water - Catholic in Green Letters on the Embedded Album. Choose: Open Link in New Tab and read about the Sound Files available for the Album. You can also Hover the Pointer over each Track and watch either of the words: info, lyrics, or buy Appear to the Right of the Track Title, and Click on each Word to see what it does. You can also Download the Album for FREE by Clicking on the Words Free Download and then you must Choose a File Format to Download in. If you want to Import the Album into iTunes you need to Chose either MP3 or AIFF format, because FLAC or WAV files only import into Windows apps like Groove or Windows Media Player. You can also try Right-Clicking on the Green Colored Hyperlinks: download or share on the Front of the Embedded Album and Select Open Link in New Tab to see what they do. All three Embedded Albums from MichaelResch.Bandcamp.com are displayed about 3/4 of the way down this Page for you to Sample under the heading Three Embedded Albums so you can examine the different "Vibes" that the three mixes elicit.

As an "Audiophile" of sorts I strongly recommend Downloading this Album in AIFF format. Five levels of Processing were used to produce it; three in Hardware using Digital Signal Processing Technology in real time, and two in Software using FFT Technology. The result of this processing is subtle, and is lost in lossy compression algorithm formats like MP3. It will help to hear the difference if you happen to have a 24 bit capable Sound System built into your computer, but a quality set of Headphones will help as well. Enjoy! MTR

This is a very special Edition of the Copyrighted Tracks in "A Cup of Cold Water - Catholic". What is different about them is that the wave-forms that make up the 10 Tracks of the Album have been specially Digitally Modified to achieve what is commonly known as "Studio Quality". In order to achieve this Format, the Original wave-forms were converted from 24 bit, 48 kHz to 16 bit 96 kHz in Software, pre-processed in Hardware using a "Creative SB X-Fi" PCI sound card containing a Hardware Digital Signal Processor (DSP) called a "Crystallizer", and also pre-processed in Hardware via DSP to "re-equalize" the Bass & Treble tones and add the Room Acoustics of a moderately lively Recital Hall. Then this modified Bit Stream was processed again via stereo Digital to Analog Converters (D/A) to an Analog stereo signal. This Signal was then fed into Stereo Analog to Digital (A/D) Converters for Digitizing the modified signal at 16 bit, 96 kHz. Then the Format was converted again to a higher resolution 24 bit Sample Size in Software at, 96 kHz Sample Rate, 4608 kbps Bit Rate, stereo Format. At this new Resolution the Frequency Spectrum was "re-equalized" in Software in order to Optimize the Sound Quality, and the Maximum Amplitude of each wave-form was adjusted to -0.5 dB in Software in a process known as "Maximum Amplitude Normalization". This process taken as a whole is known as "Sound Engineering", and is the way that the Sound of the Album was adjusted to become "Studio Quality".

Mission Statement

I am a #Catholic #Folk #SingerSongwriter inspired by the Gospel of Matthew 10:42 to give "a cup of cold water" for free to the least of the brethren for the brethren's sake. My Mission is: First, to use the proceeds from selling Downloads of my Album on iTunes and other Partners to get enough funds to use LegalZoom to create a Nonprofit Entity called MTR, Inc. to support worthy Catholic Causes. Second, to assign the Copyrights to my Album applied for on 2/9/17 to MTR, Inc. once they are assigned, and to further use MTR, Inc. to Copyright the Melody and Lyrics to the Vocal Tracks on the Album. Third, to continue to use my Twitter Account, MTR (@MikeResch) and my account on Bandcamp to continue to give free Downloads of "A Cup of Cold Water" to the least of the brethren for the brethren's sake. Fourth, to develop a Following on my new Twitter Account, MTR, Inc. (@MTRinc2) to promote my newest Album in order to solicit funding for my new Nonprofit.

First things First

If you don't already have the iTunes App for your System the best thing to do before you Download any Track or Album from my Bandcamp Site is to first Google "iTunes" for the OS you're using and Download that for free, then you're ready to make iTunes your default Music Player and then Download the Album or Track in Apple AIFF 24 bit 48 kHz 2304 kbits/sec Format from MichaelResch.Bandcamp.com. Instructions for inserting these files into iTunes is available at bit.ly/MTRsAlbum. iTunes has a unique Feature that you can use a different Equalizer for each Track. Personally, I like to use "Flat" on all of the Tracks, so that I'm listening to the Frequency Spectrum I Engineered into each Track with my GoldWave Audio Editing Software. On a lot of my Tracks I used a Roland GR-9 Guitar Synthesizer to add a "Stand-up Bass" sampled Sound to the E-A-D strings of my Martin D-28S guitar and if you have a good set of Headphones the Bass will blow you away. I also liked to put in a sampled sound for a "Concert Grand Piano" or "Japanese Strings" on all 6 strings with a sharp attack and exponential decay. You can't hear it on ordinary computer speakers but again, with a good set of Headphones the Sound in the Higher & Lower Octaves is Engineered to give maximum "Presence" to the sound of the Guitar and my Voice. I spent a good deal of time Tweaking the Guitar & Vocal Sound Quality. Listen to these songs with High-End Equipment and Software and you'll be rewarded 100%. MTR

Optimum use of this Section

The best way to use this Section is as a "Listening Experience" for the individual Tracks in either A Cup of Cold Water - Original, Ambient Seashore or A Cup of Cold Water - Catholic. The Embedded Albums for all three Albums are connected to my Site on MichaelResch.Bandcamp.com. You can Listen to Individual Tracks to get a "Feel" for the Style of Music that each Track has. You can also Read the Info and Lyrics of each Track while they are Playing by Scrolling to the Bottom of this Site and Scrolling down through the PDF of the Info and Lyrics to the Track you are listening to. If you use Firefox as your Browser You can also Download this PDF on your Browser or Print it out on your Default Printer. You can Rt+Clk the colored Hyperlink bearing the Title of each Embedded Album and Open in a New Tab to explore the "info" and "lyrics" of each Track on the Album. If you're sure you want to import an Album into iTunes make sure to choose the File Format "AIFF" or "MP3" for your Download, as "AIFF" has a Sample Size of 24 bits and a Higher Bit Rate which Exceeds the Acoustic Resolution and Bit Rate used in Commercial CDs giving you the best possible Listening Experience. "MP3" is a better choice for Portable Players like Smartphones because the File size is around 1/7 the size of "AIFF" Albums. As a Plus, you have all three Albums in one place to choose from.

Three Embedded Albums From MichaelResch.Bandcamp.com

Basic Information on MP3 and AIFF Sound Files

The Sound Files you Listen to on the Embedded Albums are MP3 16 bit, 44.1 kHz, 128 kbits/sec Bit Rate Format which are considered "Low Fidelity" because what you are hearing is being decoded at 128 kbits/sec, plus, MP3s are by nature Lossy in the highest and lowest Octaves of sound by virtue of the Algorithm used to convert the format from AIFF to MP3 which makes them sound "thin". So you shouldn't judge the recording quality of an Album from only listening to the Sound Quality of the Embedded Albums. The Sound Files I Upload for the Albums on my Bandcamp site, are Apple AIFF PCM signed 24 bit, 48 kHz Sample Rate, 2304 kbits/sec Bit Rate Stereo Format which are considered "High Fidelity" and are in fact Superior to the Quality of the Red Book Audio PCM signed 16 bit, 44.1 kHz Sample Rate, 1411 kbits/sec Bit Rate, Stereo Audio Files used in Commercial CDs because the sound you are listening to is being decoded at 2304 kbits/sec, plus, you have a Sample Size of 24 bits instead of 16 bits, so each Sample has 8 bits (256 discrete levels of amplitude) more Information in it.

Michael Resch Music Ministry Info

The Best Way to support my Music Ministry is to Pray for me on my Mission to give A Cup of Cold Water away for Free to the least of the brethren for the brethren's sake. This Album was a gift from God gleaned from my experiences in Music Ministry for the Catholic Church over the 30 years between 1968 & 1998. Aside from that, you could buy some Apparel and receive a Free Download of my most complete Album, A Cup of Cold Water - Original with all 13 Tracks plus Bonus Items which include PDFs of the Info & Lyrics of the Album, My Biography and Instructions for Importing a downloaded album from Bandcamp into the iTunes app. plus a .jpg of the Album Art in 300 dpi format. Alternatively, you could buy some Tracks from my Albums that you really like after sampling them on the Embedded Albums for $1 each. As part of my Deal with Bandcamp for Attracting Cash Flow to pay Bandcamp back for letting me have a site there I get to keep approximately 75% of money that is paid for Downloading Single Tracks or whole Albums. My manufacturer for the Apparel is Tonethreads, a Canadian Company which works exclusively with Bandcamp Artists to produce Tees and Hoodies with Custom Artwork by each Artist on a per-item basis. Tonethreads in return for bringing them Business, gives each Bandcamp Artist a percentage of the Purchase Price of each item which varies between 25% and 40% depending on the item. Also, Bandcamp allows each Artist the option of including a Free Download for each Purchase at no cost to the Artist except a 10% Surcharge on each item in return for Hosting the Servers for the Downloads, which is subtracted from the Artist's percentage from Tonethreads. There is also a Transaction Fee from PayPal which actually handles the Transaction which is a 5% Surcharge on the Total Cost of the Transaction that includes administrating the Shipping cost and Sales Tax paid by the Buyer which is also subtracted from the Artist's percentage from Tonethreads. On the other hand, my costs to operate my Music Ministry are: Yearly registration of Resch.com with Network Solutions, Yearly registration of my License for GoldWave Audio Software, Yearly registration of my License for Bitdefender Antivirus, Monthly Web Hosting costs to Internet Nebraska, and the Monthly Lease on the additional Software I use to operate my Ministry. That's it. Any extra money I receive goes toward the Creation of MTR, Inc., my proposed Nonprofit Corporation to benefit Catholic Causes. So although Downloads of A Cup of Cold Water - Catholic are Free from my Bandcamp site (that's part of my Mission) for the first 200 Downloads per month, I need your Support to help pay the operating costs. One other way to Support my Ministry is to use Apple Music's Browse bit.ly/MTRinAppleMusic or "iTunes" Store bit.ly/MTRoniTunes to Acquire the 10 Track version of A Cup of Cold Water. A portion of Apple Music's Monthly Subscription Price or "iTunes" Store's Purchase Price goes Straight into the Funding for my Ministry. If you're looking for some way to Help me, those are four Options that will. MTR
