Even though the original album was a digital recording, the subsequent mastering process appears to have wreaked havoc with the tonal qualities of her work, rendering it harsh and unpleasant. The tonal qualities are no longer harsh and tiring to listen to, the music has an impressive depth to it, and there is a new level of detail that simply was not noticeable in the original
That required a several hundred details to be programmed for each note of each instrument with various dynamic levels and performing methods, and apparently took a few years to create 70 % to 95 % succesfull replicas of the 'real' instruments.

Digital Moonscapes (1984) is an album by Wendy Carlos. Written for orchestra (or orchestra replica), it is inspired by several astronomical subjects. These used additive and complex FM/PM modulation. Beauty in the Beast is a studio album from the American keyboardist and composer Wendy Carlos, released in 1986 on Audion Records, her first for a different label other than Columbia Records since 1968. The album uses alternate musical tunings and scales, influenced by jazz and world music.
Digital Moonscapes was originally released in 1984. Reissued in tandem with Beauty in the Beast, these two albums present the extremes of Wendy Carlos. Beauty in the Beast is a work of rare originality and synthesis, both electronically and through its musicology. Fourteen years after its release, Beauty still sounds sonically rich and musically daring. Digital Moonscapes, however, sounded clumsy and contrived 16 years ago and little has changed . Digital Moonscapes" is a musical reflection of her interest in astronomical subjects. As such, it is much more personal than her Baroque realizations or her film scores. It has its interesting moments, and demands repeat listenings for a full understanding.
