This was one of my first attempts at a remaster. The St.Louis soundboard was a good quality soundboard but needed a little adjustments. This remaster took me a about a month to complete. There was alot of audio testing and different ideas put in to try and get the perfect sound. Cakewalk Music Creater 5 was purchased to do so. Audacity just doesnt have the good effects to get the sound i want out of my remasters, although it does work as a good amp and bass boost. The recording was imported as a FLAC file into audacity. It was then amplified, and added bass boost and gain to enhance sound. Then after remastering through audacity, it was exported as a WAVE file and then imported in Music Creater 5 and remasterd. Its not a perfect concert, but as close as it gets. There was some problems in the recording. In some cases the cymbols where so loud that in a few songs the cymbols where to loud and had a bad sound to them probably due to the mics set to close to them. Another problem was Stairway to Heaven. At the begining of the song there was a very annoying tape hiss. To solve the problem, the part of tape hiss was taken out Stairway To Heaven from the 3/19/1975 Vancouver show was cut to take place of the deleted section from the St. Louis show. This problem solved the tape hiss and the cut-in sections are less noticeable. The soundboard recording was just overall really good. The sound is just all there. It captured Zeppelin at their best for sure. This remaster deffinitly helped Zeppelin sound their best right at their prime. This is more than likely the best version of this show to date. Better than all the versions ive heard from bootleg companies. It was a fun remaster and was a great experience. This is a more digital remaster than most boots out there. Way better quality. If thats not what you like to hear along with the original qualities of bootlegs, this isnt for you. This is my hobby and is for fun.
