    I would first like to say thank you for all the positive feedback on my re-do of the Van Halen III album. There were a few requests I received to do something similar with A Different Kind Of Truth. I was busy the past few days putting this together for y'all. I expanded the tracks to lower the amount of compression, then lowered the level of the bass in the mix (contrary to VHIII where the bass is inaudible, the bass here overpowers the rest of the mix). In addition, I toyed with various features to try and give the album more of a 'live' feel akin to earlier albums. Once again, it's a quick few edits I did on Audacity, and it's as much as I could do without the multitracks.

    Hope you enjoy!

    P.S. In the coming weeks I'm going to be travelling and will need something to do on the plane rides. If you guys have any recommendations of albums or demo tapes you'd like me to try and bring the best out of, feel free to let me know.

    Great job again, masong!
    Can't believe how compressed it is. Knew it was but when you pop on the phones and compare it really stands out. Just that teak makes a big difference.
    Yeah, the bass is too much. I always turn it down when I listen.

    Good luck on the OU812 mission.

    I thank you for your efforts.

    Since you asked for requests ....and because you're so effective at what you do, here's mine: could you make instrumental versions of new Halen, e.g. Summer Nights, Sucker, etc?

    TIA!

The increase in sound quality is from the fact that the American/European pressings of the original CD's were half assed, partially accounting for the lack of bass presence and quality. The Japanese versions were done correctly. The true sound difference is between the original US and Japanese pressings.

    Different? Yes. Louder? Yes. Remaster? No.

    However interestingly enough, both the F.U.C.K. and Balance remasters are truly remastered. F.U.C.K. is loudened and the drum tone was altered slightly to sound more clear, in addition to a bass boost. The Balance CD is actually less compressed compared to the original, and the instruments are more defined.

    I'll toy around with both 5150 and OU812 on my flight and see what I can do. If I were you I would not go for the Japanese OU812 CD. Wait until I post and see if you like that.
    Did you ever attempt your audio tweaking of 5150 and OU812? Would love to hear them!
