let me get this straight, dont bother with the 24/96 lossless wav when you can have a 16bit lossy mp3 file?
no, there will be a new remaster posted in flac. yes there is some loss in the downsampling, but the remastering will make up for that. for those who wanted an unmastered 24/96 wav, just go to wankfest
The 24/96 file sounds indeed a lot worse than our latest previous remastering effort in lossy mp3. Why don't some of you guys (read: CATS) seem to understand this?
The initial sound recording is just ok
and wether you have that one in 24/96 or as the original mp3 MAUS supplied us will not make a huge difference. Heck, it won't even make a noticeable small difference.
You can't make a recording sound better by just augmenting the bitrate. Common sense.
The 24/96 has been downsampeld to 16/44.1 and flacced. This flac has been given to GB3. He received the file a couple of days ago, I don't know what he's up to right now. As soon as he provides me his remastered version, I'll do my remaster and make the V0 mp3 (and flac) available.
The difference with the previous version will be the source we used to remaster: lossy vs lossless. But imho I don't think there will be a huge difference unless GB3 and I use different mastering paramaters to further enhance the original source.
