Ripping Infos


If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Very light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
  • DR-Analisys before converting to Flac
  • Converting Wave -> Flac: Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Artwork: Sony Alpha 350, Epson Perfection V750 Pro, Photoshop CS 5.5

If you like what i do, please consider that a little donation would be very appreciate.
I reinvest all donations in maintenance of my rig, for purchasing cleaning solutions and, most important of all, purchasing of new vinyls.

Thank you very much !

  1. Gli archivi sono 7.
    Di ’96kLvB_BetEd10.part2.rar’ ce ne sono due, immagino sia corretto quello da 400 MB (l’altro è da 331.36 MB), oppure no?

    • Madó….questo FF fa sempre casini. In realtà ieri ho dovuto reuploadare (:D ) da capo, dopo che FF mi aveva buttato fuori con un logout forzato che fa automaticamente…e ho dimenticato di eliminare la parte troncata. Cmq, ora è cancellata e le parti sono 6

      • Grazie per questo grande rip.
        Il Fidelio diretto da Karl Böhm l’ho visto alla Scala nella stagione ’74-75 (sì ho i miei anni) con Leonie Risanek (Leonore – Fidelio), Jeanette Pilou (Marzelline), James King (Florestan), Adolf Dalla Pozza (Jaquino), Walter Berry (Don Pizarro), Siegmund Nimsgern (Don Fernando).
        Non vedo l’ora di riascoltarlo dopo 40 anni!

        • Grandeeee….hai visto Dalla Pozza. Una volta sentii alla radio “Cori ‘ngrato” cantata da lui, che mi elettricizzò, un nome che non avevo mai sentito prima. Dopo mesi di ricerche di dischi suoi, trovai solo alcune operette e basta….niente canzoni napoletane, niente opere 🙁

  2. I sat here after downloading and listened to the WHOLE thing.
    What a recording!
    What a Composer!
    What an Organ!
    What an Organist!
    What a Hi Def Master-Techy!
    What a Joy!
    What is on the Menu next! That made me hungry for More!

  3. Is it true that this Discogs page represents the set of LP in this post?

    Million thanks for the recording, and especially the light touch on de-clicking. The quality is surprising, given that recording technologies were only mature for a short time around the time of performance (1969).
