21 May UPDATE! All remasters are up now and can be found on in their original posts. They’ll be added to the ‘Mixes’ page eventually (!)
Because they sound rubbish! I’d always suspected that they were too loud, had far too much clipping and were uneven, but what could I do? That’s the way I got ’em.
Well, the stuff I rip from cd or buy from sites such as DJDownload are usually good quality 320kbps files, but some of the stuff I, ahem, discover, is not always of very good quality. And yet sometimes one just has to overlook the deficiencies of the file because the track is so damn good.
Anyway, just purchased Platinum Notes, by the same people who do the fabulous Mixed in Key. Platinum Notes claims it can ‘heal’ your audio files, repairing clipping, equalising audio and even correcting pitch.
And it bloody well does. Amazing….
I ran ‘Even More Unacceptable in the 80s’ through it. All the clipping (almost 40,000 instances in an 80 minute mix!) are gone and they thing sounds like it has been properly mastered. As soon as I can find a free host that let’s me easily share files of over 100 MB, I’ll start reposting my Remasters!
Gawd, this post looks like a dreadful sales pitch, but let me assure you that I’m not being paid to write this. I only get fewer than 100 hits per day! Who would bribe me?!?!? No, this is really amazing from my point of view.
When I get time, I’ll replace the old mixes in their original posts, but I’ll also have a nice new page up there where you can find all the mixes in one place!
Enda P: Remastered!
