The Magic Bullet

The Magic Bullet is a whimsical name given to a process that allows me to improve the sound quality of audience recordings regardless of my minimal audio engineering skills and hearing loss. It allows me to create and share improved versions of recordings that already have been shared in addition to several old master tapes that otherwise never would have seen the light of day.

It took me years of research to discover the Magic Bullet process. Although I don't profit from it, I'm not willing to share it because I'm sure it would be widely abused. I am, however, willing to process other people's audience recordings but you must understand that finding the optimal settings is still somewhat labor-intensive and that it’s a real-time process. In other words, a two-hour recording takes two hours of wall clock time on a secondary computer system to process.

If you would like to submit a sample of your recording for processing, contact me at [email protected]. I don't have a fee schedule but I'm willing to provide a free estimate based on the audio quality of the samples provided. So far, the only sample I've received was too disorted to process. There has to be something to work with.

Although there are thousands of recordings in circulation that could benefit from the Magic Bullet process, I will not voluntarily process and redistribute any recording without the permission of the person who shared it to begin with. I would make an exception for commercial bootlegs unless requested not to by the person who made the original recording.
