here's a poser for you: recently I acquired a fairly rare CD release of a late '60's movie soundtrack (i.e. "limited pressing"). The story behind the score is that (supposedly) sometime in the 70's the original master tapes were lost in a fire. So this year, some record company releases the score, only that it sounds like somebody mic'd the TV speaker while a VHS copy of the film was running. PLUS, they really overdid the noise reduction process - it completely sucked out all the high end. The end result is barely listenable, it's midrangy, washed out, muffled etc. Whoever re-mastered this did a shabby job. my questions....Seeing how I do mastering on a regular basis (via SADiE Artemis), is there any EQ or other tricks to undoing overdone noise reduction? I can take care of the midrangy-ness fairly ok...... yes, I'm planning on recutting this disc for my personal use - the score is brilliant and the ham-fisted way it was "cleaned up" just doesn't do the music justice. thoughts?
