CONTRAST: Once again, this is a different source than EvlWdchk's upload here:
... though once again, the recorders were only a few feet apart.
This is also a different *version* than my original upload here:
This present torrent is the 16-bit 44.1kHz, CD-spec, EQ'd fileset.
The guts of how I made this sausage (same as the other EQ'd/downsampled one, so you can skip this if you're reading for detail):
EQ - VST Graphic Equalizer plugin in Adobe Audition - 10 band:
<31 hz band: -12dB (serious business)
63 hz band: -8dB
125 hz band: -7.1 dB (no real reason for that .1; just sloppy, I guess)
250 hz band: -5.1 dB (ditto)
500 hz band: -2 dB
1000 hz band: -1 dB
2000 hz band: 0 dB
4000 hz band: +1 dB
8000 hz band: +1 dB
16000 hz band: +1 dB
Overall Master Gain: -1.5 dB
That single EQ pass took care of the overall volume-pegging as well as I think was needed, so I left it at that.
Sample type conversion was to the obvious 16-bit, 44.1kHz, stereo, with Dither enabled (1-bit), Triangular p.d.f. and no noise shaping, and no other fancy stuff thrown in, at the highest ("999") Quality setting.
I'm sure someone else could improve on the end result a bit, but this is still a very significant improvement over the original boomy, pegged 24-96 RAW version.
