Did I de-emphasize my old Thriller CD properly?

Postby JensenBreck » Mon Sep 18, 2017 3:11 am


I'm ripping my CDs to FLAC and after I ripped my old Thriller CD (35 8P-11) I noticed it sounded really shrill, nearly un-listenable. After a little research I discovered this is one of those rare discs that use pre-emphasis. I found and installed this foobar component called "De-emphasis DSP/Postprocessor". It added an "RIAA CD deemphasis filter" so I re-ripped the files using that.

These new processed files definitely sounds better, much less shrill and more like the CD. I could be wrong, but it still sounds a little different...could be my imagination though. Is there anything else to do...did I do it right? Some of the other tutorials using other methods seemed more involved, kinda made my head spin. This was way easy so I just want to make sure I didn't miss a step.


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
