Remastering

#1

When a track has been remastered what does that mean in terms of enhancements to the original? Is this normally performed with one of the audio suites?


#2

Well yes and no… it is done with an audio suite, but I don’t think that any programs like “CoolEdit” and such will be used. They’ve got better ways, and I think they use specialistic hardwre as wel…

(sorry, no more time to type, gotta go to my work)

are u referring to retail album tracks getting remastered by the recording companies? if so, then remastering of a track usually involves cleaning it up to remove clicks, hissing, etc. occasionally they’ll also re-record the music if the original isn’t up to their standards. i’ve even seen a few remastered tracks get remixed.

It’s supposed to mean that the original multi-track studio master tape is used to re-mix and re-master the recording to a stereo PCM master. What “enhancements” are applied would depend on the quality of the original and the intent of the engineer.
There is no “standard” for these things, it’s mostly a marketing ploy and may not mean anything at all.
