Restoring classic albums

Restoring classic albums

Organic Infest put out a quality album in 1993 that was marred by bad production. The guitars are too low, and the mix is too soft; if someone were to compress and normalize it, the album might sounds listenable again.

Who can help? I'll be uploading FLACs later (convert to WAV and edit).

I'm no expert but I'll have a crack at trying to improve the sound quality.

Well, I can try.

How about restoring and archiving classic demos and recordings that are out of print? Future generations may want to hear these, but I don't trust most metalheads to keep their CD collections and knowledge intact. It seems to me that most metalheads sell off their stuff when they hit 30 or keep it around for another decade until their fat bitchy wife/husband sells it at a garage sale or gives it to goodwill (perplexing starving urban dwellers).

Classic demos like Therion's "Time Shall Tell" could be preserved in FLAC or WAV because these are lossless formats.

I thought this was what Gay Christ records was trying to do but it turns out they trade CD-R copies which isn't a bad start.

Many internet hosts give you 30 gigabytes of space or more. That's at least 60 demos :)
