Restoring & Mastering An Old Record (2)

 

(Continued from the previous article)

 

Because of the limitation of the medium on which the recording was originally made, most of the low frequencies were lost. The 50 Hz noise you hear is overpowering the acoustic bass, and the high hiss is getting in the way of cymbals and hi-hat. You will fix these problems with EQ. 

 

 

1) Insert a 7-band EQ into the Master channel of the Mix window and apply the settings shown in Figure 1.

(In this article, I am dealing with Pro Tools. See the Figure 1 below.)

The EQ as set will drastically cut the 50 Hz frequencies (-12 dB shelving at 50 Hz), and boost the low frequencies around 300 Hz in order to bring up the acoustic bass. The 9.5 dB cut at 18.5 kHz helps to reduce the hiss produced by the needle of the turntable.
