There are only 2 recent Rush shows on Dime so I thought it would be worthwhile to answer the invite from pgroove_fan to have a go at remastering this very nice recording of his. The original recording is very clean with minimal audience intrusion so is well worth the effort to try & improve things a bit. The original recording does have some issues with the EQ including a hole between 100Hz & 200Hz & a broad resonance at around 880kHz.
So I've done the usual clean up & adjust that I do to my own recordings to try & make the best of it. This is the result. It turned out quite nice so I thought I would risk it & share it with you nice folks at Dime (notice I said 'nice' LOL), so please be gentle!! ;-D
The basic details of the remastering applied to the original 24bit/48Khz version from pgroove_fan seed on Dime (using Wavelab6 & HarBal) are as follows:
A: Fix phase issues
B: EQ / Compression / Limiting (-0.6dB max) / Dithering to 16bit (bass boost, tighten up the sound & increase average volume level from -19dB to -12dB)
C: Add silent lead-in & lead-out to WAV.
D: track split (with modifications to the original track break points)
Please note that this remaster reflects my own personal preferences with respect to listening to live shows. Remastering has been done to polish the raw master recording with the aim of enhancing the listening experience. So if you prefer virgin recordings, unspoiled by any such amateur 'dabbling' then do not join in on this one, you can still get the original recording on Dime; see above contrast clauses for links.
IMO for sound quality this is now a solid 9 out of 10 (= A-) an upgrade to the original and a real keeper ... but I would never put that in writing of course ... Doh! .. I just did ;-D
If you have any comments, whether positive, negative or otherwise, I would love to read them ... don't be a lurker, but hey! ... please don't flame me if you don't agree with my efforts ... & at least keep it 'nice' & friendly ;-)
