  1. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    I know people in Sydney have got theirs so hopefully ours are still in transit in Australia. Somewhere.
  2. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    Ugh, this shipping is wild. Tracking tells me my set has been from Secaucus USA to Sydney Australia and now back to Secaucus. I’m in Melbourne. I don’t know what to expect anymore.
  3. Mosaic's Black and White label box set

    I just got a shipping notice. I’m in Australia. Hopefully it will be here within a few months
  4. Anyone Else Follow Formula 1 Racing?

    Jazz music and Formula 1 racing. Clearly I’ve found my people. If anyone here is also a graphic designer we might have be become best friends.

    Wait, so if you use PayPal it deducts it straight away? I didn’t realise that. Will do that next time.

    I’ve said this before, but I’d really really really prefer they just take my money when I order it. Then I have control over when they take money out of my account, and what the exchange rate is, AND they get the bonus of having the money up front to keep things moving.
  7. FYI If anyone else has pre-ordered but heard nothing from Mosaic, check you spam folder for an email from Scott about issues with payment. That was the cause of my radio silence.
  8. Johnny Hodges Mosaics

    I have those Avid releases but I’ve never been particularly satisfied with the sound. Can anyone recommend an alternative that’s not the Mosaic LP?
  9. Album covers with people jumpin'

    This one I designed:
  10. Mosaic Wish List

    Count me in for that!
  11. RIP Helen Reddy.

    You've perfectly captured why that song was necessary in the first place.
  12. Digitally restoring 78 records?

    Thank you. This has been my experience but I needed a sanity check. I’ve had some success with the “centre channel extractor” feature, which analyses the L and R channel of a stereo digitisation of a mono recording and allows you to keep only the parts that are common to both. It doesn’t fix everything, but has helped. I wonder if someone has made a feature like that that can analyse and combine digitisations of different 78s for the same purpose. I just wish I could drop the overall noise levels without destroying the music, the way the pros seem to do, but i suspect that has more to do with access to clean original sources and metal masters and that sort of thing.
  13. Digitally restoring 78 records?

    In terms of workflow, do you de-click first, and then denoise? Do you denoise more for certain frequencies?
  14. Digitally restoring 78 records?

    I’ve been spending some time playing around with restoring some of the recordings over at the Internet Archive and I'm looking for some resources and/or advice. I’m using Adobe Audition (it’s what I have access to) and would appreciate some thoughts on approach for dealing with these sort of recordings: I’m mostly interested in Swing Era recordings that I currently only have in poor quality. The 78 transfers are noticeably better despite the heavy noise. Earl Hines example: https://archive.org/details/78_julia_earl-hines-and-his-orchestra-walter-fuller-george-dixon_gbia0062881a Resources I have found so far are either too simple (run a heavy noise filter over everything), or too complex. I guess I’m looking for something in between suitable for an enthusiast but not an audio engineer. Help appreciated!
