Makaveli Demo **REMASTERED** (audio)
« on: July 13, 2011, 12:37:57 PM »

Hereís the Makaveli demo that leaked over the 4th of July weekend, remastered by me (surprise, surprise). While it sounds a lot better, thereís no escaping the fact this was a partially mixed demo, probably thrown on some DAT tape thatís been sitting in a moldy cardboard box deteriorating for the past 15 years. Some songs sound pretty good, others sound just OK.

There were several songs I didnít even bother with because they sounded fine (comparatively) as they were: Bomb First, Blasphemy and Against All Odds.  The rest received varying degrees of work. I didnít add any compression to several of the tracks because they just couldnít take it (ex. To Live and Die in LA, Friends) and as far as clarity goes, some songs rose to the challenge while others could only be pushed so far. I made everything sounds less muddy, but in some instances in doing so poor mixing and audio deterioration became more noticeable.

In any case, there are 4 songs on zshare to check out below. These are the four that sound best (I considered only uploading these, to be honest). The winner here is Watch Ya Mouth; it sounds GREAT. Very happy with itóbest sounding on the whole album. Nice and loud, clear, punchy low endÖvery good. You can throw this on your retail and it should fit in just fine. 2 live and Die in LA sounds pretty great too. Even though there is not much new, I love the little transitional intro. White Manz World has a different beat, itís cool, sounds better. And finally, Friends.. not studio CDQ which sucks, but it sounds better any anything else out there. I wish a properly mixed studio quality version would leak already but I digress.

Like before, listen to the samples then reply in this thread and Iíll shoot you a link. If you feel like it, throw me a rep or two  :)

no disrespect but when you say REMASTERED, you mean that you used an EQ to adjust the levels !....if it sounds mono/muffled you would raise the treble and lower the bass/sub, or if it sounds to high pitched you would lower the treble and raise the bass/sub..asl the you re-incode the tracks also in the saving process ?
EVERY LAST ONE OF ''Y-O-U'' BELIEVE THAT DR. DRE HAS MADE THESE SONG's FOR ''Y-O-U''.
THE REALITY IS THAT THE SONG's ARE ''ABOUT Y-O-U'' !!!!!!

No.

The only EQ I use is a Waves SSL 4000 G Channel plugin. Take anyone of the leaked demos and tweak it until your ears bleed... you're not going to get even close.

Sounds good, can you shoot me a link to the entire download?  Ahhh the fun if getting off work, picking up a 12 pack, going home and blasting on the stereo and pretending like its 1996 / first listen again, only this time with how it should have been released.
