Notes by Jay:
Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed "Bertha", by firstname.lastname@example.org
Completed on January 11, 2005. Under Spectral and Wav analysis, the original source was found to have excessive audio compression applied, and some type of noise reduction.
By listening test only, the original source was found to have excessive high end eq applied.
Together, the audio compression and eq have resulted in a highly abrasive sound at flat setting.
The noise reduction was well done and did not affect the "Bertha" process.
Most "Bertha Remasters" are done using original, unprocessed sources.
The less that has been done to an original source the better the results.
Reversing the effects of a highly processed source such as this one is very difficult.
I did not expect much, but I am pleased with the results.
The original track timings were used for retracking. This is the first Non GD related "Bertha Remaster".
Notes by Unklejimbo/Jim Sirigos:
I personally want to thank Jay for all his work, I sincerely hope you all enjoy this. Please compare them side by side. It is my hope, that this will not be the ONLY LZ/BERTHA remaster I also want to thank "Your Overlord"
for originally uploading/converting the boot so we can all get it.
