Windows 7: Un "Remix" tracks back to original version

Un "Remix" tracks back to original version

Hi all
There's a whole lot of late 50's, 60's and early 70's music being broadcast currently -- but they always have added the HORRIBLE remix thump ... thump..thump stuff to the original music.

It's hard to get hold of the "Un-adultarated" original recordings anymore so the best I can do is to try and remove the "added remix" tracks.

Any decent software around that can do this or is this impossible so I'll just have to keep searching for the original music.

Any youngsters reading this -- just have a go at listening to ANY of the old 60's stuff WITHOUT the remix in it -- you've probably never heard it before but it's GREAT.

If you listen to music on your PC, create a playlist in YouTube.
You can stream music through WMP, Winamp, etc.
There are many ways to access and listen to the music you want to hear these days.

it's next to impossible to remove certain sounds from a mix, even with fancy high-end studio hardware.

you can sometimes remove vocals and other (perfectly centered in the stereo mix) sounds with a bit of phase inversion, but removing 4/4 kickdrum sounds (which is what i think you mean by 'thump thump') without leaving very audible artifacts is not a trivial task.

surely you can find the original recordings somewhere? try napster, amazon or a whole host of online music retailers...nearly everything is on youtube too, but compressed of course.

do you have any particular music in mind?

You can try processing the recordings with an equalizer to remove the excessive bass, but other than that there isn't a lot you can do if the thump thump is spread across both channels, which is likely. I have a lot of late 50s and 60s stuff and haven't had much trouble finding original mixes.

Much of what is broadcast today has been processed through a compressor to boost bass and to narrow the dynamic range and that is what you are dealing with. Your best bet in the long term is to find the original unprocessed versions one way or another.

I have a recording studio and I've had people ask or bring recordings to me to be "fixed" but as noted, once it's mixed, however it's mixed, there's nothing to very little that can be done.

"Move, but keep both files" ~ Any way to rename original file instead?
Hello, I'm wondering if there is a way to alter this functionality a bit. When I copy and overwrite a file, I'd love an option that basically did this: "Move, but keep both files - The file you are overwriting will be renamed filenamehere(1).jpg" Is there any way to do this?
