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 1.0 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX Advanced v2.02, 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.

  1. Extremely nice; Cembalo is not my favorite instrument, but this sounds very good and more pleasant than most.
    I am very grateful, Alf.

  2. It is my sincere hope that the community enjoys the music and that all thanks should go to Rachmaninov, without whom the sharing could not have happened.

    Thank you Rachmaninov for publishing this and other records to the world.
