    Nice vibe there with Dimtry, Doug and Bob Green.

    Here is OLD AND WISE by Alan Parsons strait off my master. I did this analog to digital in the days and this is what I did tonight on a remaster of the best I could get it. I did it at 24/192 and then SRC'ed (sample rate conversion) it to redbook to burn a CD.

    This is how I master.

    Notice the stats..below in the next post, notice the level of the opening.

    I opened it in SF to show you something meaningful.

    Stats are this:

    RMS Left -21.27dB Right -20.93dB
    Peak Left -0.72dB Right -0.47dB

    This has been remastered for an upcoming release and this is how it came off.

    Now actually, this is unbelievable sound.

    Other stats:


    The figures to the left are in 10ths of a dB not dB's it is divided by 100 on the scale. This si the spectrum from the entire wav. file.

    Notice the response at 44.1K

    as the 3D gets farther away...you have the response or time. The closest cut is the intro and farther is the end of song.
    Got that?
  2. Bill, I'd love to hear this; but I also have to say the fact that the waveform dosen't look like a couple of 2x4's makes me like where it's going...

    Bob, if you have an ftp or a messinger client I will be happy to upload the wave to you..if you are on a modem, I can do a 224K mp3. Email here is not an option. It is limited to a meg...(urrrrhhh)

    Thanx. I would like to hear it and will email you my FTP info. Sadly, most of my independent clients are under the delusion that their CD is only as good as it is loud. It's too bad art has been reduced to this. Usually I begin speaking really loudly to them and say "would you have a conversation with anyone who shouted at you for an hour?" When they inevitably reply "no", I ask them why they want to do that to their listeners. Sometimes they get it and sometimes they don't.

    To this day one of my favorite CDs is Thomas Dolby's "Golden Age of Wireless" for both dynamics and tone.

    I use the same analogy with clients on here.. Imagine being at a THE WHO SHow everytime you put a CD on your player...

    Imagine your mother in law shouting at your for 74minutes!
