The work began by writing down all of the EQ notes found in the original tape boxes and working from there. You don't know to what those notes refer plus there are no 15K brick wall filtering on any of these reissues.
That would be ridiculous. There are NO "brick wall filters" on any of it. There is no need for brick wall filtering in the analog domain. Your picture is labeled, Submitted by Joe Schmengidy on Mon, Like I said, this is equivalent to a 30k sample rate.
Many cutting Submitted by shortcircuit on Mon, You are incorrect, whoever you are Submitted by Michael Fremer on Tue, Calling it "compression" is the first clue that you are clueless. Were you the least bit "clued in" you'd call it high frequency attenuation or something similar. But "compression"? Severe low frequency limiting not often in place as well today. Fremer, for your Submitted by Joe Schmengidy on Tue, For your information….
Submitted by Michael Fremer on Tue, I respond to an anonymous comment by what's written not by the supposed credentials of the anonymous poster. Your comment is truly stupid. Look what you are saying: I am "questioning" the expertise of an anonymous poster? Of course I am.
Calling frequency attenuation "compression" is the only clue I have to his "expertise" and that term is misapplied by whomever he is. My knowledge of pro audio is hardly shown to be "lacking" because I responded as I did to an anonymous poster who misused the term "compression".
Most audiophiles know that second rate cutting engineers just apply filters and cut. Properly done mastering these days requires none. If you want to hear mediocre mastering Submitted by Michael T on Tue, To some degree, what comes from NRP depends upon what it's given to master from. But he has to work with what he's given… The cutting engineer doesn't always get cart blanche Submitted by walrusman7 on Thu, Hello Sir, Wes Garland Nashville Record Productions, There are occasions where, We are somewhat constrained in what we do by the the individual in charge of test pressing approval at the record label One thing to also mention here Keep in mind There are other direct to disc releases like Jack Johnson, The Shins, etc Thanks for the clarification, Mr.
Garland Submitted by Michael T on Thu, Firs of all, it is great to see that you are on analogplanet. Thanks again, Michael.
Here's what an actual mastering engineer has to say Submitted by Michael Fremer on Tue, Many early cutting consoles had a 15 or 20k filter that could be used for "cutting problems" only It was not a "brick wall" devise rather it had a cue such as 2 or 3db per octave. Sometimes certain signals did not track right when put on disk.
Hi end problems could cause mis- tracking. Such a "filter" would be used to fix those situations. It had nothing to do with getting more level on a disk. However, low end eq did have a lot to do with the target level of a disk. But perhaps your readers are talking about a low freq cross over…….. That was commonly used back in the day, especially on 45s.
This of course would be moot if we're talking about mono. You are incorrect, whoever you are Submitted by StonedBeatles1 on Fri, Slow Down Joe! Spectrum analysis of LPs shows information well beyond 20kHz. For instance "For Duke" has information above 50kHz. Who told you "most" vinyl releases are cut with 20kHz filters in place? I am leaving your comment up Because it's a fine example of bullshit and ignorance.
I hope this conversation Submitted by amarok89 on Tue, I will get this clarified. However, keep in mind that the work began by writing down all of the original notes found in the boxes and working from there Michael, now that you've met Submitted by amarok89 on Sat, Submitted by StonedBeatles1 on Fri, Aren't those mastering notes Submitted by AZ on Mon, As yet another example of bullshit and misinformation. There is no 15kHz "brick wall" filter on ALL of the tracks or on any of the tracks, Heh…… If you look at "Help" there is no such filtering or whatever it is that refers to.
I am putting another picture here that will show no such filtering on other albums either. What issue caused whatever that is we are seeing will be clarified ASAP. I've had an unexplainable Submitted by Bigrasshopper on Mon, Which albums were not intended to be heard in mono???? I defer to you Submitted by Bigrasshopper on Mon, Artificial and real stereo? The result is two bad sounding channels! Yes, these can sound fine and we all like to hear the soundstage spread and on some records it works well like "Beatles For Sale".
But if you listen to Rubber Soul original stereo mix it's a mess, which is why it was remixed in the 80s by Geo. Martin making it an even bigger mess! Peppers…" it's obvious that pre-mixed 'stems' were assigned left and right channels to create "stereo" but that it really wasn't what the pre-production intended.
Mono a stereo, separate but equal? Submitted by Bigrasshopper on Tue, If you don't like that Submitted by Bigrasshopper on Tue, There are so many good ones…. Recording the Beatles is definitive Recording the Beatles Submitted by Bigrasshopper on Wed, A Mono "Abbey Road"? I saw one actually. A Brazilian pressing surely cut from a "fold down" from the stereo tape. I've seen those on eBay Submitted by amarok89 on Sat, No stereo albums included Submitted by Bigrasshopper on Thu, Oh, I do hope special Submitted by Bigrasshopper on Mon, My Memory?
The timing of the "Abbey Road" release was given to me by Steve Berkowitz. So it wasn't two weeks, it was almost a week. There was a three day difference in the release date of "The Beatles". It came out on the 22nd of November in the UK and the 25th in America. However, that is the "official" release date.
America is a big place and how long it took to reach stores in smaller markets is another story. In Ithaca, the local dealer had to buy from a "one-stop". I have no doubt the store beat the "one-stop" by buying overseas a few days early. In fact I know he did! Mono questions Submitted by Michael T on Mon, I am also curious about this Submitted by berlinerpunk on Mon, No Mono Cartridge Submitted by 2channelguy on Mon, It will sound fine with a stereo cartridge but if you put a "Y" connector in both directions between your phono preamp and preamp it will sound better because vertical modulations will be removed.
It interets me Submitted by Jazzfan62 on Mon, Trial By Fire Again? Submitted by soundman45 on Mon, Mobile Fidelity claims to have used the UK tapes. Interestingly the album covers show the various tape boxes and they are the real ones but the same tape in each box. MMT was the Capitol compilation with electronic stereo on side two because George Martin sent mono to Capitol in the 60s.
Capitol did get the stereo mixes of side two in time for the Mobile Fidelity cassette, which has them in stereo. Submitted by azmoon on Wed, MIkey - are they using the originals for these titles? Thanks for all you effort on this! Original for these titles? Submitted by Michael Fremer on Thu, The are cutting all analog from assembled tapes.
There's a photo of one in the gallery. Funny Submitted by davidmreyes77 on Mon, A tough "business" decision for me Submitted by WaltonGoggins on Mon, Michael, do you have any idea how many of these sets- or individual albums- will be made? Thanks so much for all you do, Michael. Gimme Soul! Submitted by rdh on Tue, EQ was used to produce the CD boxes. Of necessity. I think they excessively boosted the bass on some.
