Re: Remaster Category and No More Names!

roxio is shit. it does not re-read bad sectors, provide error reports, or correct drive offsets.

use exactaudiocopy.de for PC, xAct for mac when you're extracting.

check 'the truth about offsets article' in the eac config link below in my signature.

these are both freeware

Actually, XLD I think may be better than xACT. I did a test on it and got the same exact rip as I did with EAC. More testing needs to be done since I've only tested it on one CDR I have, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the fingerprints match from the EAC extraction and the XLD extraction.

if im extracting from a silver, then i use eac. otherwise, for the time being, its roxio. are you saying to do what i do w/ roxio, burn it, then do the eac? or should i just do if from the hard drive.

if it goes into roxio, it comes right off the memory card. you guys know, what would be the best software to use in post production before i use eac?

thanks

Audacity for tweaking your recordings and CD Wave for cutting the tracks.

Re: Remaster Category and No More Names!

chinajoe: if you're extracting from a silver or any 'audio cdr' use eac. if you're burning an audio cdr, use eac. there's no need to ever add a burning step into the lineage. If you're using roxio to do something other than extracting from a cd/cdr or burning an audio cdr then maybe its okay (?) not certain what you're asking.

saltman: sounds great! we can add that to the FAQ and start telling ppl to use XLD if they're on a mac. the offsets are correct as with EAC?

as dc mentioned, for simple audio tasks use the freeware prog Audacity...i also use it for splitting tracks, others prefer to use CD Wave for that part -- its up to you

as has been stated numerous times tho, stay away from using filters/effects yer unfamiliar with, especially if yer not trained in audio and are using a freeware prog that said, you can and should use the Normalization feature in Audacity [it is a peak normalizer fwiw]

here's a quick how-to:


Normalizing/DC Offset Correct
1. import your raw wav into Audacity
2. Effects > Normalization -- select "Remove any DC offset" and normalize to just below clipping [i usually set it to -0.1dB]...do this to the whole raw file, before splitting tracks


Track Splits
1. Open your wave, Edit->Move Cursor...->Track Start and hit command-B.
2. Locate all your track splits and mark each one by hitting command-B.
3. Go to File->Export Multiple, select WAV as the export format, Split files based on:Labels, Name files:Numbering consecutively, hit Export.

Correct Sector Boundary Errors
load yer split wavs into TLH [PC] or XLD or xACT [Mac] and have it correct any SBEs before converting to flac

:

i'd be using roxio 9 only on master recordings, to cut tracks and maximize
the volume when needed. it has a normalization feature, from1x to 10X. i was asking if their normalization was ok, since someone mentioned that some kinds of normalization are ok. no one has said anything was wrong w/ the 3 masters i uploaded using roxio 9. i do convert the tracks to flac via tlh w/o burning a disc.

Re: Remaster Category and No More Names!

instead use audacity ... roxio = joke program they sell to people like my grandma

get the latest beta (supports flac, works fine for this stuff)

go in preferences and set export quality to 16bit/44.1kHz (IMPORTANT)

load in the entire large wav file and do your normalization (its in the amplitude fx menu somewhere... easy to use)

don't screw with the eq or that stuff unless you really really (really really) know what you're doing.

cut into tracks as here:
http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=60462
esp see the link at post #15

you can even export directly to flac

bob's your uncle!

post back here if you get stuck at any point, there are lots of people who will help out (we like talking about this stuff because if bores our wives)

Re: Remaster Category and No More Names!

^^^

i didnt see a way i could increase the overall volume. i did try the normaliztion. it seemed to add too much. its there a way to add just a little normalization, or is it an all or nothing option?

Re: Remaster Category and No More Names!

We have not decided on having a single category just for remasters. It seems that there are really not many remasters out there and so far, they have been all identified clearly. So, if you want to post one, you are fine to do so, just make sure it does say Remaster in an obvious spot. Also, keep in mind that some tapers have expressed that there shows only be shared in the original unaltered way and you should be sensitive to their wishes.

Re: Remaster Category and No More Names!

the best thing i read in this thread so far is that there are people who are offering up remasters of shows that have already been remastered.
