There are a couple noticeable brief analog DOs in Skin It Back, at
02:29 and 6:47. There are other less noticeable analog artifacts here
and there. After all, it *did* come from a cassette :-)
There was a cut between "Icculus" and "Camel Walk." I did a cross fade
as best I could, and think it sounds pretty seamless.
I don't recall the number of cassette gens but believe it may have been
3 (that information is unfortunately not on the DAT J-Card that came
with the tape).
Transferred to computer using a Panasonic SV-3700 DAT deck and Turtle
Beach Fiji I/O card via S/PDIF as one continues WAV file. There was a
fair amount of hiss and not much high end on the DAT. CoolEdit Pro
was used to apply a bit of sweetening and hiss reduction, and also to
downsample from 48 kHz to 44.1, and also to normalize. The master WAV
file was archived directly to a SHN file, which was burned to a data CDR.
The original WAV was extracted, split into tracks using CDWav, and the
individual tracks were compressed again via SHN.
The key thing: *NO* audio CDR gens!
