about

Over the past 3 years I have learned a lot on mixing and mastering analog to digital. I knew I could eventually improve this album to really have the warmth it has so misfortunately lacked in my opinion. I don't know what happened between the master tapes and the vinyl, but there definitely a loss in warmth and bottom. The 1/2 track 15ips analog tape masters were in sad condition when I turned them over to Sonicraft. They cleaned and baked them for a week to restore what they could of the original analog signal on the tapes. There has been a slight hair of a loss on some song do to my own fault for how I stored them. I used but a fraction of a 31 band stereo graphic equalizer to increase the possible lost highs and remove some bass bottom to compensate. I would say that they're at least 98% pure tape sound and the rest as I listed, some EQ. Enjoy.
