This is great! I've been frustrated for years with "remasters" of tapes that circulate with no info at all regarding what was done the tape to improve sound (and often achieve these results using compression or limiting, as far as I can tell).I *could* share them, but I don’t feel that will help much. What works for this tape, won’t work for another. I do everything by ear, based on my experience as a producer and mixing engineer. My fear if I explicitly state my settings is that people would use the same values I did here, and try to apply that to every tape which is 100% the wrong way to go about it. That might contribute to EQ jobs I feel don’t actually improve the tape. That’s one of my top criteria when doing work on tapes: if my end product doesn’t sound better to my ear than the original, leave it untouched as-is.
Would you be willing to share what frequencies you cut, or are you trying to keep that as your own "secret sauce"?
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
