Cant believe my dumb ass didnt think of this sooner. After years of listening to dead shows, i've come to hear certain things in the music that i love and some things about the mixes that I dont love. So I started eq'ing some of the shows i have. always add bass to 80's shows, add low mids to get bobby or piano up in the mix (depending on the year of course and keys and bobby's tone) Does anyone else do this? I was thinking I would get like a vintage EQ system for my stereo (didnt a lot of stereos used to have these) stereos are really downgrading for the most part these days, except for super hi fi stuff.
I just found i could eq on toast titanium, my flac burning software. It allows you to use AU effects on tracks. up to 3 that then get recorded to CD! pretty cool, except i cant figure out how to make one eq mix go to all the tracks. i have to set it for every track!!! and i like to use the 31 bands!!!! just eq'd some of the europe 72 box set stuff, amazing how much better it can sound!
just an FYI because of a previous response i got to this idea. i'm not saying people that eq and mix this stuff are not good by any means!! just different stereos need different eq's... and yeh some of the eq jobs suck! i think they could have done a lot better on this box set. whoever did rockin the rhein was a genius!
