CommentBootleg fan remaster widely available online ___________________________________ Red Hot Chili Peppers (1999) Californication [Remastering from rough mixes 2014] *** IMPORTANT *** These files are NOT brickwalled, but the loudness is pretty low overall, make sure to blast it at full power *** IMPORTANT *** These are the steps the original 16/44 lossless files went through during mastering: - convert to 24bit/88.2Khz to provide more precise EQ/gain work - De-clipping made in iZotope RX 2 when needed (special declipping done on Get On Top) - EQing made in iZotope RX 2 and Waves plugin in Protools 9 - Multiple A/B sessions with different version of EQ until i found the right one for each song - Multiple A/B sessions between songs until i got a homogenized sound throughout the album - I focused on reducing noisefloor via EQ and getting a sense of realness to the drums especially Anthony Kiedis voice sometimes sounds low-fi, but that's part of the mix, since Backing vocals actually sound lively - Widen the stereo a tad with iZotope RX 2 adding left channel to right and right to left which gives a nice wider stereo imaging as well as more ambiance during quiter parts - Multiple listening sessions over the course of 4 weeks on at moderate/high/very high volume (75dB SPL, 85dB SPL, 95dB SPL) : - Audio Technica ATH-M50 - AKG Q701 - basic iPhone earbuds - Samson Rubicon R8A monitoring speakers with Ribbon tweeters - Pioneer CS-301 3-ways 8" speakers - Cabasse Sampan 311 13 3-ways 13" with "Honeycomb" membrane - Gain adjustment to fit the original CD volume between songs (exactly -11dB compared to the CD) - Resample to 24/44, 16/44 with iZotope RX2 - Convert from 16/44 files to 320kbps MP3 and 400kbps m4a using Foobar2000 - Tags done in Foobar2000 Upsample to 88.2Khz/24bit > Declip in Izotope RX2 > Widen stereo with Izotope RX2 > EQ in Izotope RX2 and Protools9 Via Waves Plugs > resample/conver to different format > your amazed ears
