Polishing The Boards

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing!  That Dazed sounds so much better than it does on the straight soundboard!  Listening to it on Deus Ex Machina had me doubting it as my favourite version of all time a little bit, but this sounds terrific!

Nice ! :) it sound way better !

Not your level, but I once took Sittin' and Thiking (Live at Fillmore) and had fun with Samplitude Studio, I think it sounds a bit clearer now

Gibsonfan159 recently did a remaster of the Mobile 73 soundboard. It sounds great to me:

 

Awesome thread idea! My favorite hobby as of late has been toying with Zep boots to see if I can make them more interesting. I use a DAW to add reverb and very slight delay to soundboards to make them sound more natural and spacious.

On this particular show I brought up the highs a bit to reduce that muffled sound. This adds more hiss to the audio but I'll take some tape hiss over a flat, muffled sound. I have a playlist of the entire show minus Stairway (which always seems to trip the copyright algorithm).

I currently use SoundForge 11 and Video Vegas to enhance the boards. Most just need a little frequency reverb and EQ,with a little compression and limiting.

You're all speaking Greek to me (soundforge? DAW? Video Vegas?), but whatever your methods, I'm enjoying the results. I'm sure Eat A Peach's release will also be a sonic improvement over EVSD's Deux Ex Machina.

Do you use Sound Forge 11 Audio Studio or Pro? Big price difference between the two . I would assume Studio is sufficient. That bit of Mobile sounds really excellent. Better than any boot release. Do you know where I could get the whole show, if shared?

This sounds excellent, better than the label releases. Is it possible to hear the whole show? Do you share? Thanks.

Here's a playlist of Gibsonfan's remaster. It contains all the songs from the soundboard except Stairway (because of Youtube's copyright issues with that song). Hope it's okay with him if I share it:

Perfectly Ok with me. I shared a remaster of Deus Ex through Drive which was taken down by an admin. I can certainly understand why, but it seems moot considering you just need to use a YouTube downloader to get files from YouTube. I asked the admin if I could reshare the folder with the download option turned off and haven't received a reply.

I use Mixcraft. It's pretty simple to use and has an online forum which is useful if you have any questions. 

 

Edit: Not sure if they've changed it, but the version I use doesn't read flac files, which kinda sucks.

Here's one I did of No Quarter from 2/28/1975, Baton Rouge. Again, just adding some reverb, slight delay, and EQ adjustment. If anyone wants the whole show PM me.

Which reverb do you use, and which delay?. I downloaded version 7, it supports flac

This is the reverb setting I usually stick to. You'll have to play around and see what you like best. I do just enough to add depth to a soundboard. The "SIZE" and "MIX" settings are what make the biggest differences. I keep both kinda low.

Delay I usually don't bother with because it can muddy up the mix. If you do use delay, make sure the feedback is very low so it doesn't carry over too much. You don't want it to last much more than a second and very subtle.

Got the Feb. 12, 1975 MSG show up on youtube. Not a great performance, but pretty solid for 75. Added depth to the flat soundboard.

This is such a good version. There is no soundboard for Copenhagen gigs, is that right?
