Retransfer notes Blackout [DG] - [Sept 11]
Following recent disussions with the legend Boyacrobat about his famous Lovetown Melbourne recordings i convinced him to revisit some of his tapes for a possible retransfer session of some of his masters. The feeling was that some distortion may have crept into the original transfers that he performed and released several years ago. Indeed this turned out to be the case upon examination. The tapes were originally recorded *very hott* by his portable toshiba cassette recorder due to the voltage that the mic he used for recording was injecting into the unit, which was unavoidable. There is small amounts of distortion due to this but the bigger problem was that when transferring the tapes for release, the level was also *very hott* coming off the tape and the deck he used for the orignal transfers did not have the headroom to handle these hot tapes and was driven into distortion and clipping when playing back. This time the transfer was done with a pro deck, a mint-condition Black Onkyo TA-2600 and into pro-tools via the Digidesign 002 Rack interface. Some other problems were corrected such as speed issues, frequency-phase correlation and image stabilisation and a more gentle maximizing from Sony Oxford Limiter. No EQ. Final FLAC was done with Sound Forge 10. The entire signal chain was handled with care and with the utmost attention to detail. The result is a far superior recording that is higher resolution with far less distortion and more headroom/punch with clarity. This is truely the definitive ultimate recording /transfer of this classic Melbourne Lovetown recording for your collection!
