  1. Aha, a meme and a double entendre! The language of the internet is perhaps the most complex of them all.
  2. This is a more natural pose with relaxed facial muscles and how I look if you were to glance at me from across the street
  3. I normally record with a paper bag over my head. I only have plastic bags left and didn't want to suffocate
  4. There are people out there that think Radiohead fans are pretentious. There are also people out there that would buy a Coldplay album over a Radiohead album. On this forum, for the most part, we are here because of a band we love. If I share something, it is for the same reason. Also, that video was actually intended as a Father's day gift, and not my original reason for creating this post. To clarify 1) The MINIDISC remaster is only going out to people who request it by contacting me personally and prove that they have purchased the original album from bandcamp. 2) I reall
  5. Lovely post booger. What was your chosen poison for consumption?
  6. There's always someone that prefers to spend their time complaining.
  7. I wanted to try and finish a version of Maybe This is Love. Not using the original audio though, but by attempting a faithful cover with some improvisation and a loop pedal. Can someone please help me with the lyrics? What on earth is Thom singing? I managed this transcribe this during a heightened state of analytical confuzzlement. Maybe this is not the reason This is not the answer so Maybe just get it back Just like a melody line Nobody else can solve your eyes Maybe this is alright You're just going to look to the end Someone's got [cuts out] a way to get back
  8. For me it depends on the time of day. Disc 15 Lift is a more powerful kick for a morning/day-time drive. Disc 16 Lift is better for late eve/night.
  9. Disc 2 from the leak. I'm working backwards from the official release and haven't got to re-doing that one yet.
  10. Bandcamp FLAC files. It has been EQ corrected. I didn't initially see any frequencies to suggest high-pitched ringing, but I will double check the frequency analyser. You're likely hearing Thom's voice vibrating against the microphone/recorder. When I master I normally do graph first to achieve a good baseline, then a hearing test afterwards because our ears can focus on really weird nuances sometimes.
  11. So far the only frustrating thing to fix has been the farting drums on CUTW on MD122. Boom... Brrp! Lots of manual digital click removal.
  12. Quite happy with this one lads. Tomorrow Night In Paris with no crackles or crap. ++++ removed due to copyright infringement +++
  13. Another snippet of the work in progress. MD122 is very rough round the edges. Apply a little TLC and it is shaping it up to be listenable at high volumes Before https://instaud.io/3Ofi After https://instaud.io/3Ofj
  14. Adobe Audition mainly, and a few Waves plugins.
  15. So I got a bit distracted and decided to improvise over one of Thom's ditties
  16. removed due to copyright infringement
  17. It's really slow going but I wanted to let you guys know that I'm working through each disc and fixing all the errors. Stuff like phase issues due to left & right channel imbalance, along with remastering all the random acoustic ditties and live performances. I'll post a snippet in a bit. If you want the whole thing when it's done, send me a screenshot of your Bandcamp purchase receipt to hello at filiposcar dot com. I think that works, right? Suggestions welcome.
  18. No. I'll try my best to clarify. A transcoded file means that it has been encoded from a lossy format (e.g. ATRAC1, MP3, OGG etc.) into another lossy format. The original Minidisc audio is ATRAC1 and it is encoded at approximately 292 kbit/s. ATRAC1 is a lossy format, so if you download the FLAC or ALAC release, you are not downloading a transcoded version. You are technically downloading lossy audio that is contained within a lossless audio format. This preserves the original raw audio from the Minidisc. If you download the MP3 or OGG version, it will be transcoded. If you want
  19. If you purchase from Bandcamp you can download in any format you desire. MP3, FLAC, OGG etc.
  20. FLAC is available and it preserves the original ATRAC quality, whereas MP3 is a transcode. It's the difference between lossy to lossless vs. lossy to lossy. FLAC would be the preferred download if you want to hear it exactly as it sounds from Thom's Minidisc.
  21. Yes, spectrals are better but a brick wall limiter was used. Only nuance/misc audio and gap silence appear to be cut.
  22. The leak has a freq rolloff at 16 kHz. The official release has a freq roll off at 19 kHz. It's brighter for sure. The bass is also less muddy because you're not suffering from poor quality MP3 transcoding artifacts. Is it noticeable for casual listeners? Honestly it depends on your speakers. You will notice a difference if listening with a decent pair of studio monitors with good tweeters, or studio headphones. I listen to music mostly on my Beyerdynamic DT 770. I can hear a much tighter bass and clearer treble now.
