This tape's noise floor is surprisingly low by comparison of the others, so either it was on a higher grade of emulsion or it didn't get played as much. Visually examining the tape's colouration it appears to either be a CrO2 or perhaps an high-chromium superferric, so that may be why. Some of the selections do have some noticeable companding distortion, particularly during piano and flute solos, which may either be a result of whatever processing AEI used in mastering or an artefact of having been recorded at 1 2/5 IPS.
No restoration, EQ or noise reduction was done on this transfer. Speed correction was -27.5% (-25% plus extra -2.5% to adjust for possibly faulty mastering equipment). The audio has been split into separate mono tracks for this presentation.
When downloading this recording e.g. for local listening or to post elsewhere, please select only the original high-bitrate PCM ("WAVE" option) files. The lossy MP3 files for immediate previewing in the built-in Web player above were encoded from the PCM files using LAME 3.99.5 Linux (command $ lame -b128 -mm -o -q0 "'filename.wav]") but for optimal listening please download and use the PCM version. The FLAC files listed are Archive's own autoderivatives and cannot provide technical support if you download them. Master files are encoded as 44100 Hz 16-bit linear PCM (RIFF header). The unprocessed tape-in files are also provided for reference.
For private listening (home/headphones/car) and historical-interest uses only. If you want to play this music in a business, you will need to contact Mood Media and set up a subscription.
